Converting offices to flats
7 February 2017

Further to our article in May last year regarding our involvement in converting offices to flats in Dunstable. Link can be found here. Our Architecture & Building Surveying department are pleased to announce the completion of the scheme to convert two separate offices into four flats.

We were delighted to be instructed by our clients to obtain prior approval under the new changes to Permitted Development Rights. Once prior approval was achieved, we developed the scheme and obtained Building Regulations consent, prepared working drawings and a detailed specification and tendered the works. The works were project managed by Robinson & Hall and the new completed flats were let within two weeks of entering the market.

Martin Cullip, Chartered Building Surveyor comments “This is a great example of how Permitted Development Rights give clients an opportunity to diversify their portfolio, especially in areas where the demand for office space is low. The client was very satisfied with the outcome of the project as we have managed to turn office space that has been previously redundant into four desirable flats”.

For more information or if you have a similar project that you would like to discuss, please call Robert.
