Although we have been encouraged by the number of architectural enquiries we have received this year, 2011 has been particularly satisfying for us in terms of the proportion of our projects which have found their way “off the drawing board” so to speak, obtained planning permission, and been constructed on site. The images below are of a residential refurbishment and multiple extension project in Whitkirk, Leeds, which we have project managed under a formal JCT building contract, following our appointment by the client to provide architectural and interior design services and obtain Planning & Building Regulations permissions on their behalf.
The works for this particular project consisted of a side and rear extension to an existing bungalow, which was looking rather tired and uninspiring. The roof tiles were completely replaced and tied in with the new extension, the brickwork re-pointed and new windows installed throughout. The internal layout was completely overhauled to create a much more open and flowing feel. The rear garden was also re-planned and re-landscaped which very much added to the feeling of a newly constructed dwelling.
Remaining works, which consist of re-turfing the rear lawn and final decorating snags, are due to be complete in the next week or so, and we aim to obtain some professional photographs of the completed project for inclusion in the “extensions” section of our projects pages very shortly. The building works were undertaken and carried out to an excellent standard by PC Developments Yorkshire, with whom we have now forged an excellent working relationship.
