An architect’s job is often misunderstood and homeowners are frequently intimidated by the idea of having to work with them. Renovation works on homes often require architectural intervention – usually when the property is listed, unconventional or an extension or addition is being designed and built.
Refresh Renovations scopes out every job individually and builds a specialist team of professional tradespeople to suit it; including an architect, where appropriate. The Derry-Londonderry & North Antrim team have years of experience with tricky and ambitious architectural renovations on homes throughout the region.
Refresh works on an all-inclusive project management basis, taking care of every detail of your renovation from start-to-finish. Recent works including architectural intervention in the Derry-Londonderry & North Antrim area have included:
- Side return extensions
- Rear house extensions
- Loft conversions
- Garage conversions
- Kitchen extensions
- Basement extensions
- Structural changes
Consistently high housing prices have pushed more homeowners than ever to renovate their homes and extend their living space rather than choose to move home altogether. In Derry-Londonderry & North Antrim, this takes many forms but across recent years we’ve seen an increase for demand for side return extensions and rear house extensions, as well as loft conversions (most frequently to create extra bedrooms). The skyrocketing cost of living has also encouraged many homeowners to create annexes and/or additional bedrooms to let out on sites such as Airbnb to create extra income.
Generally speaking, you can expect to pay an average of £1,200 - £2,000 per square metre of new space on a ground floor extension but the exact price of any renovation depends on the size and scope of the job. Refresh offer no-obligation property visits for free to any home in the Derry-Londonderry & North Antrim area to discuss the full scope of your project.
Refresh’s project management approach has won awards worldwide and ensures the best possible team is put together for every job. This includes architects and means that no matter how specialist your property project, we can take care of it.
Architects can work both within and outside of planning requirements and are qualified in having specialist property law knowledge. If a renovation does require local planning authority permission, this will be managed by the architect and the Refresh’s project manager to ensure the design and build fits within requirements. This forms part of Refresh’s standard services and will usually incur no additional time or budget – but this can all be discussed during your home visit.
