One: Order confirmation
Once your order is confirmed, you will receive our personalised information pack which will guide you through the next steps in detail.
Two: Architectural drawings
Our qualified loft conversion architects will visit your home in order to undertake a measured survey and discuss your design ideas. A preliminary set of drawings will be issued to you for your approval shortly after for your measured survey. Once you have approved your drawings, these will be submitted to the local authority for the appropriate planning permissions.
Three: Party structure notice
You will require a party wall agreement under the Party Wall Act 1996, section 3 if your property is adjoining another. Altitude Lofts have years of experience in this, and will assist you every step of the way in obtaining this.
Four: Final decision meeting
Our design consultant and project manager will visit your house shortly before the build is due to commence to discuss the finer details such as electrical and sanitary ware positioning, creating the final set of working drawings.
Five: Commencement of works
Once the appropriate planning permissions have been obtained, your building works will commence. Scaffolding will be erected and a crane will deliver your initial materials and steel beams. Until the staircase is due to be fitted, all works will be carried out externally in order to minimise the disruption to you and your family. Throughout your project Altitude Lofts specialists will undertake quality control checks. An independent building Control inspector will also visit on commencement, during and on completion of the project. The time taken to build a loft conversion varies depending on the size of the build and any adverse weather conditions but we aim to complete all works within 6-8 weeks from the date the initial materials are delivered.
Once building works are complete, your scaffolding and all other hired equipment will be removed. Building quality control will visit the site for the final time and your completion documents including your Altitude Lofts guarantee will be collated and issued to you.
