Modern and Traditional Barn Conversions

Barn Conversions are an area we specialise in and pride ourselves on.

We have a 100% record on achieving planning permission for barn conversions.

With barn conversions it is essential to meet stringent planning and conservation requirements. We have an experienced team that will undertake the project from design and planning through to completion of the build / conversion works. Coupled with this, our experience and portfolio of completed conversions has created strong relationships with local planning authorities, which is priceless.

The key to any barn conversion is the design and ensuring all the requirements that are essential to the planning application are addressed in a professional manner prior to the submission of the planning application. Within our design and build service we coordinate all elements of the design and the planning application, coupled with issuing budget costings and fixed priced quotations to ensure the completed design is affordable and the planning application is successful.

Our services include:

  • Free consultation on the likelihood of achieving planning permission
  • Free consultation on the most pragmatic design
  • Free consultation on budget costings
  • Design Consultation Workshops
  • Completion of the planning application drawings and 3D modelling of the final design
  • Co-ordination and submission of the full planning application

  • Acting as the client agent throughout the planning application process
  • Issuing of a fixed price quotation for the completion of the build / conversion
  • Completion of the build / conversion by experienced highly skilled tradesmen

Once you have planning permission, the focus of the project quickly moves onto the quality of the build. Within our team we have the experience and knowledge to address all elements of the conversion. We have significant experience with both modern and traditional repair and restoration methods.
