Learn How We Build Your Story

At Boarshurst Building Contractors, our team of professional and experienced architectural surveyors produce high quality detailed designs with the ability to provide optional 3D photorealistic images (see examples) of your renovation or construction project before it’s even built.

The benefits of seeing your project in 3D will give you a full understanding of how the new space created or external appearance will look and offers the ability to make any tweaks to the design before building work starts onsite.

During the design stage, we propose innovative options that maximise the potential of your build within your budget, whilst also considering Planning policy and the Building regulations. Before submitting completed architectural drawings to the relevant Planning authority and Building control, we always seek your approval, ensuring that your vision is at the heart of every decision.

Our process begins with an initial survey and design discussion, allowing us to gain a comprehensive understanding of your design brief. After a quotation is proposed and accepted, we maintain its fixed price so that you don’t have to worry about any hidden costs or unnecessary delays.

The Official Bit

Planning Approved

For many loft conversions and house extensions, the good news is that planning permission may not be required. These projects can often be completed under the umbrella of permitted development, and we would always advise and submit a Lawful Development application to your local authority to gain approval that the project is compliant with permitted development. In some cases, your project may require planning permission from your local council. Rest assured, we’re well-versed in the intricacies of planning policy and can offer expert guidance and support throughout the application process, ensuring a smooth path toward obtaining the necessary approvals for your project.

Party Wall Agreement

For projects involving party walls, we’ve got you covered. If needed, we can connect you with a reliable party wall surveyor who will ensure that all legal and regulatory aspects are properly addressed.

Building Regulations

Even if your project doesn’t necessitate planning permission, it’s crucial and a legal requirement that it complies with building regulations. We’ll assist you in preparing and submitting the necessary plans to building control authorities, whether it’s through your local council or a regulated approved inspector. Throughout the construction journey, we’ll maintain close collaboration with the building control team, ensuring that each critical stage of your project meets the required standards. Your peace of mind and the quality of your project are our primary concerns, and we’re here to ensure your project’s full compliance with the Building regulations.

Getting The Job Done


With meticulous planning and a well-defined contract in place, it’s time to embark on your project journey. The duration of your project will vary depending on its nature and complexity. For a loft conversion, you can typically expect a timeframe of around 8 to 16 weeks, tailored to the specific scope of work. Extensions may take approximately 2 months to 12 months to complete, depending on complexity and size, ensuring attention to detail and top-notch craftsmanship. If you’re considering bathroom and kitchen refits, these projects are often wrapped up within 2 to 8 weeks, providing you with a refreshed and enhanced living space in no time. We’re committed to delivering your project efficiently and to the highest standards, ensuring your satisfaction every step of the way.


Your peace of mind is our top priority. To provide you with extra assurance, we offer optional warranty products that come with guarantees of up to 5 years, ensuring the longevity and quality of our work.
