We have successfully excavated and developed basements in London properties for many clients to create home cinemas, wine cellars, swimming pools, gymnasia, saunas, games rooms, self contained flats and other reconfigured interior spaces to add significantly to the comfort and enjoyment of living in West London.
London basement company
As with all our work, we create spaces that are sympathetic to the style and heritage of the property itself, whilst providing a contemporary living or working space of unique character.
In addition to the new space and facilities a basement conversion can offer, basements generally prove to be an extremely sound investment. Depending on the precise nature and location of the property, an attractively developed basement is likely to add, immediately, between 200% and 300% of the cost of its construction to the overall value of the property.
The process of constructing a basement is not, however, for the feint of heart. It is becoming increasingly challenging and expensive to secure planning approval for basement developments. Attempting to negotiate this calls for specialist knowledge and local experience.
Basement planning and construction experts
Each borough has their own particular requirements, including carrying out soil drilling and testing, structural engineering detailed calculations, eco-home assessments, flood risk assessments as well as submitting traffic plans and various other documents which require preparation by certified consultants.
To obtain this documentation for the Planning Application will cost several thousands of pounds. For this reason, basements should not be entrusted to the inexperienced. TylerMandic have an excellent track record in obtaining Planning Approval for basement construction in London, and are well-placed to advise what might be achieved at your property.
