Basement conversions in London and the surrounding areas have become increasingly popular over the last decade. This is due to the ever increasing cost of housing and the lack of space. They are also known as retrofit basement projects.
Some of the basement conversion projects have become simply enormous in size, as the one shown in the picture. Going down multiple levels, and under the entire garden as well as the house, this basement conversion cost many millions of pounds to complete. These basement conversions are also known as iceberg basements due to their shape.
Basement conversion projects of this size quite rightly cause distress and alarm to the neighbours. Their concerns often about the safety of their own properties, the noise, disruption and length of words. A project of this scale would take in the region of 2 – 3 years to complete.
As more people undertake basement conversions in London, the more difficult it can become to undertake the work especially if there are several being undertaken in the same street. We at Capital Basements go the extra mile to ensure that you are still on good terms with your neighbours by the end of the project. We put measures in place which makes a big difference. Simply by arranging our deliveries and collections after 9.30 am and before 3.30 pm avoiding the rush hour makes a difference to those going to work and involved in the school runs. Nobody wants to be waiting for a truck to be unloaded with a car full of screaming children, who are late for school. We look at all the ways which we can minimise disruption and still complete the project within the specified time frame.
The majority of the basement conversions we undertake are for people who have simply run out of space. The most popular basement conversions contain additional bedrooms, utility, media, office, bathrooms and living space.
So if you live in London or the surrounding area, and require more space, please contact us and discover what can be achieved by installing a basement conversion beneath your home. We look forward to meeting you.
