House Extensions with ACA
Do you need more space for your growing family? Perhaps your home is in need of a makeover? Well, Allan Corfield Architects can help. It’s easier and more cost effective than you may think to extend or convert your garage or attic into a more habitable space. Now might be just the right time to consider a house extension.
ACA have completed numerous house extensions, mainly in the Central belt of Scotland – from Fife to Perth & Kinross, and from Edinburgh to the Scottish Borders. With the Government’s Permitted Development rights, you may not need Full Planning Permission for a house extension – this route makes it less expensive and time-consuming than you may think! Over the last 6 years ACA have tailored the required house extension service to help the average homeowner get the necessary approvals in place – as well as assistance in appointing a trusted local contractor.
When ACA provide a Fee Proposal for a house extension, we will split the required services up into logical stages. These have a fixed cost and an advised timescale. The RIBA suggest that an average fee for this type of project would equate to between 9-12% of the overall Construction Cost.
At ACA, we believe our clients should know all of the main facts and costs before committing to a project, so we work on a fixed cost rather than a percentage – that way our fee isn’t determined by how expensive your build is!
