Refurb or new build

  • Heavy refurbishment
    Where you are looking to make changes to the use or the size of an existing building.

    This can be via permitted development which allows for the conversion of a commercial property such as an office into residential flats, or where planning is obtained to allow for an extension (e.g. to the roof, or for a basement ‘dig out’).

  • Ground up
    Where you are looking to purchase land, or demolish an existing building and replace with a residential or mixed-use scheme. (Please note that in these scenarios, the “land” will need to have the required planning approved)
