Residential Renovations

Since our conception in 2019, ECSL have provided design consultancy services on a number of residential properties around the East Midlands. These projects have ranged from simple property extensions to complex retrofitting, enabling our clients to maximise the potential of their property.

One particular example of the complex projects we have developed included the complete removal of all internal floors and extension of the building footprint both vertically and horizontally.

Project Overview

The ECSL team typically undertake site visits in order to gain first hand knowledge of the property, the constraints and our client’s aspirations. This is then usually followed by a review of architectural plans, consultancy advice in accordance with Building Regulations, planning applications and design calculations in accordance with Eurocodes in order to satisfy Building Control.
