Loft Conversion

The Construction Co were commissioned to convert the existing attic space of a mid terrace house to a top floor flat.


Existing Brief:

Using architects plans, The Construction Co were commissioned to convert the existing attic space of a mid terrace house to a top floor flat following renovation work on the existing habitable space of the property.

What we did:

After the completion of seven flats previously at this property, we were asked to return by the client to convert an existing attic space into a top floor flat. We worked with the architect to convert the loft space into a large flat spanning three terraced properties.

Given the existing renovation works of this property and with this project being on the second floor, we were required to meet stricter requirements on fire safety, access and soundproofing to name but a few. Given that this conversion was not of existing habitable space, we were tasked with organising the installation of utility services to and from the attic with minimal disturbance to the rest of the property, which was under tenancy.

As the flats beneath were being used, we had to be considerate of the tenants whilst all the work was carried out. Working hours and material deliveries had to be scheduled accordingly. The flats were finished to the same specification and layout as the surrounding flats which increased installation efficiency.

Key points:

  • Loft Conversion into habitable space as a self contained flat
  • 8 week project
  • Returning client
  • Minimal disruption to neighbours

Alan Watling – Director of Geoffrey Watling (Norwich) Limited

Since 2010, Geoffrey Watling (Norwich) Limited have used The Construction Co on 2 major building works. These being 6 new bungalows built on The Glebe at Hemsby together with the conversion of a long redundant office building in Cathedral Street, Norwich. This consisted of 3 former Victorian terrace houses together with a 1960’s rear extension into 8 modern self-contained flats. Both projects were completed to a very high quality that is rarely seen in this age of skilled shortages. Further with both projects together costing over £1 million, the Construction Company acted as the quantity surveyor on both projects – saving us the expense of employing one. We would not hesitate to use the Construction Company on any further building project.
