New Sure Start Children’s Centre within the grounds of a school, for large Local Authority

 

Michell Associates were commissioned to provide full architectural services for the construction of a new Sure Start Children’s Centre within the grounds of an existing school. The building has underfloor heating and solar powered hot water making a very efficient build to run.

Extension over existing garage for new master bedroom and ensuite with new single storey rear extension for kitchen and family room. Wilmslow, Cheshire

 

The client wanted to extend and remodel their existing house for their expanding family. The current accommodation had a small kitchen and family room that was not configured well for family living. Upstairs, of the 4 bedrooms only the master bedroom was a suitable size.


Michell Associates solution was to extend the rear of the house to provide a new kitchen and family room with a utility room in the exiting kichen.


Upstairs a new master bedroom with secret wardrobe and ensuite was built over the garage and a bedroom was extended with its own ensuite too. This created 4 good sized bedrooms to compliment the extended ground floor space.

 

We provided feasibility options to make sure the best use of space was being achieved. Full planning and Building regulations drawings were completed and we liaised with the clients builder to ensure the drawings and specification were being followed giving the client piece of mind. 

 

We responded to all technical queries that arose making sure there was no hidden extra cost for the client.

House Extension in Frodsham, Cheshire

 

The client approached Michell Associates as they wanted to extend there family home as this was going to be more economical than moving house and would achieve the additional space they required.


4 options were sketched up giving them various configurations of space, these were explained in depth helping them decide on the best option for them.


Once the decision had been made as to what was required, we produced full planning drawings and submitted a successful Planning Application. Building regulations was achieved next and we also appointed a Structural Engineer on behalf of the client, as the work required numerous steel beams to support existing walls which opened up the rear of the house.


Once on site Michell Associates have been on hand to monitor the build and answer any technical queries from the builder, ensuring there are no hidden extra costs and the specification is being followed, giving the client piece of mind.

Extension in South East

 

The client approached Michell Associates as they were looking to replace and existing conservatory which was too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.

 

We proposed a new build extension with appropriate level of insulation to avoid the problem they were experiencing, and opening up the views to their garden.


We produced full planning drawings and submitted a successful Planning Application. Building regulations was achieved next and we also appointed a Structural Engineer on behalf of the client, as the design required numerous steel beams to support existing walls and roof. We also liaised with the water authority as the extension was passing over existing drains and requires permission to build over them.

 


Once on site Michell Associates have been on hand to answer any technical queries from the builder, ensuring there are no hidden extra costs and the specification is being followed, giving the client piece of mind.

 

 

The client provided the following testimonial:


"Davyd provided a thoroughly personal and professional service from start to finish. He listened to our initial ideas and helped us shape them into something really special. Nothing was too much trouble from the first draft right through to the final approved drawings.

 

Davyd handled absolutely everything for us including all council and utility service applications and secured all approvals. He kept us fully up to date throughout and was on hand to chase the local council when deadlines approached.

 

Davyd was even able to provide us with templates for things such as Party Wall agreements to make these tasks even easier for us. Once the building work began Davyd has been on hand to answer queries and has even visited the site to run through things with our builder.

 

 

We would have no hesitation in recommending Davyd and would definitely use his services again in the future"
