Garage Conversions in Birmingham

Double garage

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.

We provide comprehensive advice before any commitment

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.

From basic design to full project management, you can tailor your service to you

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.

Highly recommend CK Architectural. Chris and his team did a great job gaining planning permission for a new build and renovation of an existing property. We hit some dead ends with the planning officer but Chris found different ways of getting around the problems without going over budget.

For someone far removed from the building / planning industries the thought of where to start when thinking of a big extension project to my house (two story to the side and wrap around of semi-detached 3 bed) was a little daunting at first. Luckily, after obtaining a competitive quote, I enlisted the services of CK Architectural and have been very impressed with not only the service received but the ease at which they have made the whole process. After listening to my thoughts and the reasons for needing the extension work doing, the architect came up with a great design that encompassed everything that was needed. Even when I changed my mind over a couple of aspects, Donna, Chris and the team were quick to administer any alterations. Every visit to the house for measurements / planning etc has happened without a hitch with all members of the team we've encountered being punctual and professional at all times. The best thing has been by far the ease at which CK have made of getting all council and local authority sign off for the project. All I have needed to do is pay the fees at the required time, no stress involved and all went through seamlessly. I'm now at the stage where I have the drawings to hand and have submitted them to builders to obtain quotes. Importantly, the feedback so far from the builders indicates the project to be within the budget specifications I explained to CK during the first consultation. Very happy customer 🙂 Carl.

Excellent Service and prompt!! I have taken CK's service twice. Chris and his team is very helpful and most importantly have enough patience to accommodate my frequently changing mind set. I would happily recommend any one to CK Architectural and wish them all the best.

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.

We have a fully trained team on hand to help however necessary

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.
