Leicester is one of the UK's oldest cities and as a destination conveniently located at the centre of several major transport interchanges, proves a popular place to live. Recent years and redevelopment have seen house prices rise throughout Leicestershire, and although they're still considered very reasonable compared to national averages, it's not uncommon for homeowners in the area to extend and renovate rather than up and move. And that's where Refresh Renovations Leicester come in – ready to help with our expert team and full end-to-end project management approach.

- Loft conversions
- Outbuilding conversions
- Home extensions
- Listed building renovations
- Conservation area renovations
- Structural changes
- Architectural drawings
- Floor plans
- Redevelopment architecture.
The outskirts of Leicester has several areas of listed buildings and there are also plenty of period properties through the more urban residential neighbourhoods. Such homes often require the input of an architect for renovations and recent projects Refresh Renovations have been involved in include loft conversions, extensions and the creation of new floor plans to open plan layouts. Many homeowners are opting to open up the floorplans in their homes to create more open plan living spaces, and to extend their living spaces by converting existing but unused spaces like garages or lofts, or opting for extending into the external spaces with traditional home extensions.
The term 'architectural renovation' is very broad and can refer to any home renovation project that requires the architectural elements – that is, usually a job amending the structure or usage of a building. The cost homeowners can expect to pay for a renovation varies hugely based on the job at hand as well as its size and scope. It's also usually the case that renovations on listed properties or those in conservation areas will cost more, as they require more bespoke considerations.
In most cases, hiring an architectural specialist is just one individual in a team of many required to complete a renovation project – so the hiring alone takes a long time as you strive to find the best people for the job! Refresh's team include every possible contractor, tradesperson and architectural specialist you could need, all through a single point of contact, and all managed by the same person for ease of renovation and swift project resolution.
Not all architectural renovations need planning permission, but if yours does, this will be managed by your Refresh Renovations project manager. They'll take care of everything from the design, application and any required appeals to ensure everything is done to the book and to satisfaction of homeowner, local authority, and crew.
