About Us

Build My Design offers concept to completion design and build services across the London area, specialising in home extensions.

We are a young and dynamic company focused on achieving high quality results whilst providing value for money and delivering projects on time.

Our team has a wealth of experience in the construction industry spanning over 10 years, ranging from hands on carpentry work through to corporate quantity surveying.

We understand that many of our customers want to stay in the property whilst works are carried out. Many also have young children and pets. We aim to work around your needs to ensure minimal disruption.

“Our aim is to provide a high level of quality and professionalism for our clientele, past the point of design, into the build phase and through to completion and beyond. We manage to achieve this by surrounding ourselves with like minded individuals and businesses.” (George, Director)

We have the resources to cater for your project, regardless of it’s development stage. This includes a full design, planning and build package where necessary. Alternatively we are more than happy to work from designs provided by you.

There are many options to choose from when deciding on your home extension. The main types of house extension are single storey extensions, multiple or double storey extensions, garage conversions, loft conversions, basement conversions and conservatories. They are usually designed to add floorspace or bedrooms and create open plan living spaces that work with modern day lifestyles.

Architectural design terminology can be confusing and ground floor extensions alone are often referred to as side extensions, rear extensions, side return extensions, L shaped extensions, wrap around extensions, orangery-style extensions, glass extensions and so on.

SERVICES

Architectural Drawings

Architectural Drawings

We will measure and survey your property and use your brief to suggest a number of designs. Once you are happy with a design we will draw up full plans ready for submission to the authorities for approval.

Planning Permission

Planning Permission

We will determine for you whether the works require planning permission or if they fall under permitted development rights. We always ensure that the local authority confirms in writing whether or not a planning application is required. If planning is required we will manage the process from start to finish on your behalf, most applications are decided within 8 weeks.

Building Control Approval

Building Control Approval

Once your architect has drawn up plans you're happy with and planning permission has been granted you will need to prepare more detailed plans and specifications to submit to building control. Building control will then assess these in accordance with building regulations in order to ensure you meet the requirements for structural integrity, fire safety, energy efficiency, damp proofing, ventilation and other key aspects. Only once this is granted can you start construction on site. We will take your plans and prepare and submit the relevant information to building control and liaise with them until the plans are approved.
