Whether we’re working on small refurbishments or multi-million pound residential projects, our design and building work delights our clients and makes us proud. Our London design and construction team consists of highly qualified architects, engineers, project managers, and on-site specialists / technicians who can confidently design and build your new space.
Planning Approval Rate
We have over 20 years of experience in a range of sectors and building types from loft conversions and extensions to innovative new build.
We work in close liaison with clients to develop our proposal in line with their needs, providing an enthusiastic and prompt, personal service.
We consider sustainability is a necessity in new construction. We work closely with our clients to produce sustainable solutions that are cost effective to build.
After you submit an enquiry for your design and build project, one of our architects will give you a call to discuss your plans.
If you are happy with the quote, the architect will arrange a visit to your property so he can see what you want to achieve.
Once you are satisfied with the proposal, we submit the planning application to the Council for approval.
After planning approval, we prepare the building regulations drawings and structural calculations and submit them.
Our team of skilled builders will carry out the construction and will keep you updated on every step of the process.
Upon completion, we will provide you with a ten-year structural warranty and the completion certificate.
Kompas London provides a complete architectural design service from conception to completion. We'll create a plan based on our extensive planning experience and study, which we'll then submit to the Council for approval.
You must apply for building control for any internal or external building work. The application should accompany your structural calculations and building regulations' compliance documentation. We serve London and surrounding areas.
Our home extension services are meant to increase the value of your property while also providing valuable living space. Create your ideal place with one of our expert architects and end-to-end service to add value to your house.
Loft conversions are a viable alternative to consider if you love your current home but are short on space. A loft can be transformed into a light and airy space that can be used as a guest bedroom, study or virtually anything else.
The rendering service offered by Kompas London allows you to see your project in amazing detail before the first brick is set. This is a great way to make sure you get exactly what you wanted when you started the job.
Kompas London has extensive expertise in the development of environmentally friendly, contemporary new houses. Our services are personalised and tailored to our customers' individual needs as well as their specific site conditions.
Of course. We are more than happy to visit your property at a time convenient for yourself and quote for the required works.
For domestic properties, planning consent relates to changes in the appearance or use of buildings such as an extension to a house, or a conversion of a house into flats. Planning should not be confused with the building regulations that are entirely separate. Planning can be one of the main hurdles to clear when thinking about making changes to your home and needs to be given consideration from the start. It may be possible that your project can be done within permitted development. Kompas London Ltd will be able to advise you of this during your initial visit.
As a general rule, if you wish to make additions or extensions that will affect the external appearance of your property you will need planning permission. More restrictions apply to flats and maisonettes than to a house. Internal alterations do not usually require permission, although you do need planning permission if you want to convert your property into separate dwellings i.e. flats or bed-sits. Not all loft conversions require planning permission. If you live in a conservation area or your building is listed planning permission may be required for work which would normally not require it – always check with your local authority. If you have a situation which you think falls outside of these guidelines or are in any way unsure, it is best to contact your local authority who will give you the necessary guidance. Planning issues can be contentious and if you proceed without any required consents you may be required at your cost to demolish or significantly alter any development undertaken.
You may be able to make certain alterations on a house (as opposed to a flat or maisonette) without the need for planning permission. This is termed “permitted development” and it applies to an “original house” i.e. a house as it was first built, or as it stood on 1st July 1948 if it was built before that date. If an “original house” has not been extended (including loft conversions) you may be able to develop your property under these rights. As permitted development is subject to limits on height and volume, and has many permutations, we advise you consult your local authority and/ or an architect. Your local authority may have withdrawn permitted development rights if you live in a conservation area.
Again, this is subject to many variables, and your initial enquiries should be directed to the local authority and an architect. You can gain a general indication of what is likely to be approved by looking at other approved development of properties around your local neighbourhood.
