House extensions in Barnsley

House extensions in Barnsley are one of the most effective home renovations that are available. With the potential for kitchen extensions, ground floor bathrooms, utility rooms and relaxation spaces with rear and side extensions, or even feature rooms, entranceways and living areas with typical front extensions, you really have the freedom to create the perfect space for your Barnsley home.

We work alongside you and your ideas, creative vision and your specific, unique project requirements to ensure we have every detail we could possibly need to design the perfect extension. We start the process with initial designs and concepts working with you and the size and layout of your home, before taking them through planning stages or permitted development where available, building regulations, and can even project manage the build of your house extension too. With our decades of experience, it’s all something we love doing to help you with your project. That includes everything from purpose built extension designs through to lighting, ventilation, feature requirements, and anything else you could possibly need.

We offer a free consultation in the comfort of your own home and offer all the advice you will need.

You will get the best design options so that you can make the right choices

Loft conversions in Barnsley

Loft conversions are also popular in Barnsley, as they provide you with the extra space that you need without having to sacrifice any space outside of the home. They’re also the most budget-friendly option for the most part while still providing a whole world of space on the top floor of your home. With a range of styles available to you too, like dormers, hip to gable conversions, classic roof-light styles or even entire roof lifts, you can really make your project your own.

We’ll design your loft conversion with your ideas and uses in mind while factoring in the necessities like lighting, access, facilities and legalities like heights, stair placement and fire protection to create the perfect fit. They have the potential to be a true haven at home, giving you all of the benefits of a completely new space and the privacy of no neighbouring rooms.

New build house designs in Barnsley

New build and self build house designs in Barnsley are rapidly growing in their popularity. People are using this up and coming property trend to create ideal, bespoke and modernised builds at lower costs than typical house pricing, created entirely around their own standards to create a truly unique home. Whether that is being used for low cost first time buying, creating the perfect family home or even as a revenue generator as a developer or landlord business decision, they have a huge potential in what they can offer.

We work with you to create the design you love at any scale you need, tailored and amended by you to take through to the next stages. We can consult with the local planning authority for you to ensure project viability, before taking you through the planning and building regulation stages too. We then have our comprehensive project management service at your disposal, where we can take on the entire build, helping to select the best builders, administer contracts, provide a schedule of works, and inspect the site throughout the build to ensure only the highest quality.

As a developer in Hull, I have been working with CK Architectural on many complex projects and they have always delivered a great professional service. Highly recommended. Lars

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.

Excellent Service and prompt!! I have taken CK's service twice. Chris and his team is very helpful and most importantly have enough patience to accommodate my frequently changing mind set. I would happily recommend any one to CK Architectural and wish them all the best.

Journey to your designs

Survey/Self-Survey

First, once you choose to move forward with our service, we need to get some info. In most cases, this is a self-survey where you take rough measurements that we’re able to make drawings with. For larger projects, we visit the site.

Design Meeting/ Virtual Design Meeting & Screenshot

Step 2 is where we show you our drawings and discuss your likes, dislikes, and how to move forward. We can do this both in person and via online meeting to help make things as easy as possible.

Approval & Confirmation

Once you’re happy with the designs with any amendments, we’ll send you the first invoice. From there, we’ll issue your designs to you digitally, so you have them whenever you need them.

Submit to Planning

The next step is to submit your drawings to the planning portal after we add a location map, consult any 3rd parties and writing the planning and design statements. The Portal will get in touch with your directly for their fee, and then forward your application to the local authority.

Application Validation

Following the submission of your application, the admin & validation team from the local authority check the application fits the relevant criteria, before they validate it, send it back to us, and we forward it to you letting you know all the info you need.

The Planning Process

After this, the Planning Officer will write to the neighbours, highways, environment, relevant utility services etc regarding the application, and speak to the council and anyone objecting, too so it can be reviewed. They will then give you a decision date and begin to look through all of the information.

Approval

Once a decision is reached, you will be updated by us. We will then advise you on the next steps. If the application is refused, we will be in touch to discuss redesign/submission. There is no application fee for resubmission within 12 months.

Building regulations drawings

After approval of your planning application, we’ll move to building regulations. We’ll send you an invoice before then starting the detailed drawings to submit to Building Control. You can let us know if you have any new additions, amendments, or preferences as to construction here, too.

Builder tender (If requested)

Once the drawings are approved, we will send the drawings to our recommended builders for quotations if this is something you have opted for. We advise getting quotes from at least 3 builders to verify their prices and to find the right builder to suit your project.

Send drawing to BC and SE

Next up, we submit the drawing to Building Control and Structural Engineers as required. They let us know they have your application and check it against the 2013 legislation. Then, they write to us requesting amendments and clarification. We will update the drawings and answer the questions until we gain approval.

BC Sign off and Approval Letter

Once the building regulations drawings are approved, we’ll get in touch and let you know immediately. We’ll send you the drawings you can give to your selected builder where they become principal contractor and take responsibility form there. Your Building Control Officer will attend when required as instructed by the builder to sign off each stage of the works.

Receive drawings

Once the Building Control has signed off and approved the drawings, you will receive 3 large copies of the drawings in the post along with a completion pack. At this point our services will be finished unless you choose to use our project management service and we take things through to the completed build.
