Going UP in the world? Then don’t forget to go DOWN

Moving to new premises can be costly and stressful, basement conversions offer an economical solution and an alternative to a costly relocation. Space is at a premium and a modest investment will reap rewards if you are an owner occupier. For a tenant it can also make perfect sense as Landlords are often willing to contribute towards the structural waterproofing & environmental costs of a project

 The eight main elements of a basement conversion:

  • Tanking / damp / waterproofing system
  • Thermal & Acoustic insulation
  • Introduction of natural light / lighting that is as close as possible to daylight
  • Ventilation
  • Heating & Cooling
  • Fire safety
  • Safe access/egress
  • Minimum head height of 2.200 M
