STS was successful in obtaining a planning permission for a construction of a large basement courtyard extension in 2011 in line with the recently introduced Camden Council basements supplementary planning policies.
Following planning, we have prepared a full set of structural and building regulations drawings, and the construction method statement. This was sufficient to also secure party wall agreements.

The construction works are now well under way, with the anticipated completion in mid to late 2013. Please browse the photo gallery below to follow the progress of construction.

Following a successful planning application which was obtained in January 2012, the construction work was commenced and the basement courtyard extension was created by June 2012. It was to provide additional living space to a ground floor/basement flat in the heart of Chelsea as well as healthy return on investment for our client. The project was completed in 2012/2013.
The existing house is spread over three stores – ground, first floor and loft and currently features 4 bedrooms (including one recently created loft bedroom). The proposal is to convert the house into one five bedroom flat at the ground floor, a two bedroom flat at the first floor and one studio in the loft.
