ADH Building Services – Extensions
When building or looking to get an extension built there are a number of points to take into consideration.
- Beware of hidden costs in foundations, building control, i.e trees, routes and environmental issues
- Any drains or drainage on your property used to be owned by you, now though they are owned by Northumbrian water. So they must be informed of any interaction with drains.
- Planning permission can be applied for using your own drawings, but! For an extension you will need to go through building regulations which requires working drawings. These should always be completed by an architect. We can help as we have archtects to do these.
- We can also help submit plans to the council for approval.
When we build an extension we go through a process to ensure the highest standard of finish possible, also to ensure you are aware of what is happening at each stage.
The stages we follow to ensure your project is completed to the highest standard
