Redeveloping and renovating your home is an exciting time, but with so many variables it can be difficult to know how best to proceed with everything. Architects form a vast portion of renovation expenditure and their input is invaluable on property projects of all shapes and sizes. They don’t just design properties, they redesign and redevelop them too – increasing space, optimising use and transforming property design.
At Refresh, we approach every job on a full project management basis that covers the whole job from start to finish. This means we oversee every aspect of every job, with the primary architectural renovations we work on being:
- Side return extensions
- Rear house extensions
- Loft conversions
- Garage conversions
- Kitchen extensions
- Basement extensions
There have been three main renovation trends in Hampshire throughout the last few years. The first is for side return extensions, branching out on the small spaces afforded to terraced houses through the county’s urban areas. The second and third are both conversions – loft and garage – utilising these spaces better to make them into functional rooms used daily and not just for storage. While these aren’t all we offer when it comes to architectural renovations, they’re certainly a rapidly increasing percentage.
It’s nigh on impossible to give a single quote for an architectural renovation because their size and scope varies so much. That’s why Refresh offer a property visit with an Architectural Consultant for free and with no obligation; so we can scope out the work together, talk through all of the possibilities and meet a mutually-beneficial quote for the job.
Our project management approach has won awards worldwide because it’s so different to other companies. Assigning a project manager to look after every detail ensures that even when major works are occurring, homeowners can stay in work, stay with their daily routines and stick with their plans without having to take time off or out to deal with the renovation. It’s a win-win – a transformed home AND no hassle!
There are some architectural renovations which will require formal planning permission from the planning authorities in Hampshire. If this is needed, it can be managed (applications, appeals and all administration) by your project manager and in most cases, needn’t add any extra time or budget to the initially agreed scope.
