Garage Conversions in Birmingham


Garage conversions are an amazing way to improve your home in Birmingham and the West Midlands. They increase your usable space, have a wide variety of uses, and they of course increase your property value as a result too. They’re hard to argue with, offing most of the same benefits that a loft conversion does, only with the added privacy of being away from the main property.

Whether you have a double or single garage that’s attached or detached, there are a number of different options available to you that can all be explored with the right architect or designer.

At CK Architectural, we have a wealth of experience working with garage conversion projects in Birmingham as well as the rest of the country, giving us all of the knowledge, experience and insight we need to transform your space in the ways that work for you.

Designing a Garage Conversion

The first step of the process to convert your garage is with designing the space you will have to work with. One of our architects or experienced designers will work with you to create a solid understanding of the space you have available as well as what you want to achieve from the conversion in the long term and use this information to draw up detailed plans of the space, you’ll have available and all of the features that come along with it.

From access, widow usage and aesthetics right through to the practicalities of the converted space, we’ll take care of every detail, giving you the final say to add, tweak and change whatever you like to make sure it’s the perfect space that you’ll love for years to come.

Planning Permission for Garage Conversions in Birmingham

For the most part, garage conversions can be carried out using your permitted development rights and actually don’t need planning permission, making things much easier than many larger home renovations. This may not be the case if you’re making a new dwelling like an annexe or granny flat, or something similar, or if you’re in a conservation area or somewhere with a planning directive, it typically stands.

Whatever situation your project is in, we will give you the guidance and advice that you need to give you an accurate understanding of what the planning process will entail and give you every chance of success to bring your project to life. We’ll liaise with any planning authorities on your behalf and make any required changes all without any added stress on your and your home life as a part of every service we provide.

Building Regulations for a Garage Conversion

Building regulations are an important part of any new and high quality conversion. They outline the details and legalities of the converted build, adding all additional information required to gain approval from building control and to be deemed a legal and up to standard finished project.

Our garage conversion building regulations service will address all aspects of the build, from plumbing, electricals, access, light and ventilation, as well as materials used, structural information, and a vast range of other components too. We’ll submit these drawings and liaise with building control again on your behalf, making any required changes at no additional costs all to give you the best possible chances of success and minimising wasted costs from problematic building work.

Converting the Garage

After all of this architectural work concludes the final step in your garage conversion project is actually the conversion process itself. We have a range of builders who we would be more than happy to recommend for the job, as well as offering any additional support that you would like for your build to give you the peace of mind you need to know that your project will be as easy, safe and stress free as possible.

Contact us today to discuss this in more depth and we’ll give you all of the advice we can.
