If you are looking for a firm to build you a luxurious basement conversion in London, to extend downwards to create an entertainment space, a cinema room, a home office or an entire new storey for your London home, then you’ll want to choose the best – a basement construction company with years of experience and hundreds of satisfied clients – you’ll want to choose Proficiency Design & Build.
Down is the new up. In a city where space is a scarce resource one solution is to dig deep.
London: 8 million people squeezed into just over 600 square miles – no wonder it can sometimes feel cramped. With very little space to extend outwards and restrictions on extending upwards, if you love your home too much to move but need the extra floor space it may be time to consider a basement conversion. We’re not going to lie, a basement conversion can be costly and time-consuming to construct, however, the end results can be magnificent. From a small wine cellar maintained at the perfect temperature and lined with floor to ceiling racks to an entire additional storey styled from floor to ceiling to be every bit as stunning as the home above, and everything in-between, our team have designed and built them all.
We’ll come to you so we can see your home first-hand, to listen to your basement conversion wish-list and to assess what’s feasible given your area, the construction of your property and any likely planning restrictions or challenges.
As basement conversion specialists we know that in most cases basement excavation work in London will require planning permission. The process can be arduous and expensive, but not if you have the right team of architects, designers and basement contractors by your side.
Though we’re a friendly team, we know how important it is for you to have a single point of contact, someone you can get to know and speak to whenever you have questions, so each project is allocated a dedicated project manager.
In most cases, when you carry out a basement conversion, cellar conversion or basement underpinning work you will need to obtain a Party Wall Agreement. Our team have plenty of experience in this area and are skilled at helping you obtain consent from any neighbour who may be impacted by the excavation/building work.
Our team will work with your building control officer to ensure that all work is carried out to code and inspections are facilitated. Then on completion we will make sure that you are provided with all appropriate certificates, warranties and documentation.
If you already have the space, but it’s dark and dank, ask for a quote for a redesign and refurbishment, a renovation to create a stunning room you’ll love to escape to.
To create a new basement room or rooms you’ll need designs, a specialist builder and potentially planning permission. Our team can handle it all for you.
Whether you have a few bottles you’re proud of or an entire collection, a wine cellar at home is a really popular reason for a downwards extension.
Construction techniques have moved on a very long way from the cold, dim underground rooms people used to call basements. Today a basement conversion is a light, spacious extension to your family home. With lightwells and LED lighting, you control the illumination. Advanced sound proofing means you can enjoy your cinema room’s new speakers to their full without disturbing others in your home. Modern tech in cabling, broadband and mobile signal boosters can mean your new home office is always business ready. You could create a spacious lounge or a playroom, an expansive kitchen/dining room or a new bedroom or two with en suites. Whatever you wish us to create for you, we will be there from design to completion to guide, advise, support and build your dream basement conversion.
London basement conversions come at a cost, but specifically what that may be is determined by the hundred and one decisions you make at the design stage of your project. What we can assure you of is that we will squeeze every last ounce of potential from each penny of your budget, respecting your limits and keeping you informed of progress every step of the way. Our team of architects, interior designers, builders and tradespeople are not only craftsmen and women, they are also committed to keeping our promises to you on matters of time and budget.
