Designing Your Garage Conversion in Manchester

Designing your garage conversion begins with us using your preferences and ideas along with our expert design skills and advice to create ideas for you to agree with before we create concepts of the completed layout. Reviewing these yourself and making sure you’re happy with the finished results, we’ll then use this as the official design moving forward as we gain you the permissions you need for your project.

Our designs will review the space you’ll have available, access, lighting, aesthetics and more to give you a real idea of what the completed project will look like for you.

Planning Permissions for Your Garage Conversion Manchester

Generally, garage conversion projects can be carried out using your permitted development rights. That means that usually you won’t need to have planning permission in place to have your project completed and can get it all done just with a certificate of lawful development.

Of course there are still some cases when replanning is required. If you’re making a new dwelling house like an annexe or a granny flat as they’re often called, for example, you’ll likely need full planning permission to have that done. The same actually goes for planning restricted areas like conservation areas or if you’re in a listed building. In any case, we’ll give you all the advice you need to understand all of this before you move forward.

Building Regulations for a Garage Conversion

For conversions that will be practically liveable in, building regulations will often be the next and last step in the architectural process to make it all happen legally and professionally. These drawings capture all of the specifics of the project against the legal building framework that is in place in the UK top make sure that you are including everything that you will need to do it properly. That means that the safety regulations are going to be met, as are efficiency regulations, and other potential mandatory factors.

Building regulations look at things like heat, light, ventilation, access, fire safety, material usage and much more too, all in one set of complex drawings. These drawings will usually then be able to get accurate quotations from builders before work begins so that you and them know exactly what the project will pertain to.

A fully trained team is on hand to help you however necessary

Highly recommend CK Architectural. Chris and his team did a great job gaining planning permission for a new build and renovation of an existing property. We hit some dead ends with the planning officer but Chris found different ways of getting around the problems without going over budget.

For someone far removed from the building / planning industries the thought of where to start when thinking of a big extension project to my house (two story to the side and wrap around of semi-detached 3 bed) was a little daunting at first. Luckily, after obtaining a competitive quote, I enlisted the services of CK Architectural and have been very impressed with not only the service received but the ease at which they have made the whole process. After listening to my thoughts and the reasons for needing the extension work doing, the architect came up with a great design that encompassed everything that was needed. Even when I changed my mind over a couple of aspects, Donna, Chris and the team were quick to administer any alterations. Every visit to the house for measurements / planning etc has happened without a hitch with all members of the team we've encountered being punctual and professional at all times. The best thing has been by far the ease at which CK have made of getting all council and local authority sign off for the project. All I have needed to do is pay the fees at the required time, no stress involved and all went through seamlessly. I'm now at the stage where I have the drawings to hand and have submitted them to builders to obtain quotes. Importantly, the feedback so far from the builders indicates the project to be within the budget specifications I explained to CK during the first consultation. Very happy customer 🙂 Carl.
