    Our Featured Projects

    We co-ordinate all aspects of the project, including the design, planning permission, party wall notices

    and the building works. We ensure all relevant certificates are obtained and, upon completion,

    we provide you with a guarantee for the work.

    1. Dormer Conversions – Paddington

    A dormer is an extension to the existing roof, creating additional floor space and headroom within the loft conversion. The dormer extension would project vertically from a sloping roof, internally a dormer has vertical walls and a horizontal ceiling.
    If a loft has limited space or headroom a dormer will provide additional space that can make a conversion feasible.
    Creating a gable front and a hipped roof dormer will make it look more attractive, however these types of dormers do not offer as much internal space, a gable front and hipped roof dormer will cost more to build due to the complexity of the build
    Additionally, a dormer loft conversion can be constructed without requiring planning permission, depending on the specifications.

    2. L-Shaped Mansard Conversions Paddington
    Named after the French Architect Francois Mansard from the 17th Century. A mansard loft conversion is located at the rear of the property. Typically, a mansard has a flat roof with the back wall sloping in at 72 degrees and has the advantage of maximising the full space within the loft. Planning permission would be needed due to the change in roof shape and structure.
    While this type of roof desirable to maximise space in your loft conversion it does have a downside – as it involves replacing the entire roof the construction costs will be high.

    3. Velux Conversions Paddington
    Velux loft conversions, also known as roof light conversions are easy to install and normally only require one of the existing rafters to be trimmed out per window. This type of conversion is very cost effective
    As the loft is not extended beyond the original roof line and the structure left unaltered planning permission is not normally required.
    A Velux type loft conversion works very well for lofts if there is already a good amount of headroom or if there are constraints on planning. If headroom is going to be limited then it may be better to consider a dormer or mansard conversion may be a better option.

    4. Loft Conversion with Pod Room – Paddington
    A loft conversion pod room is built out usually over half of the back addition giving approximately 3m for a room. This is usually popular with clients who have already had a conversion and require more room. Pod rooms are the newest option for property owners in London, the space is perfect for a spare bedroom, office, luxury bathroom, playroom or nursery.

    5. Loft Conversion with Roof Terrace – Paddington
    A demand for roof terraces have increased in London due to planning regulations being more relaxed, however roof terraces always require planning permission and are depending on the local authority. Why not create an open space outside? a place to enjoy the weather and entertain some friends.

    How the Green Life Contractors Team work

    Step 1. Planning & Design

    An initial consultation

    Greenlife Contractors offer a free site visit and consultation for your property in London, either at your home or at our office in Parsons Green (Studio 2, South Park Studios, 88 Peterborough Road, SW6 3HH). This initial meeting will allow us to understand your goals and ideas, listen to your requirements and design the space you want. Our surveyor will then assess your property and discuss your needs briefly and the practicalities of the project. Within days of this initial consultation we will provide a detailed proposal with an estimated budget.

    Design and schematics

    This is where your ideas start taking shape. The architectural designs and schematics will give you an accurate picture of how your property will look. When you’re happy with the plans and have approved the budget, we can apply for the necessary permissions.

    These are important documents for you. We will always appreciate that this is your home and endeavour to minimise the impact the construction has on your life, our team are available to support you each step of the way. Our schedule of works gives you detailed and itemised list and costings of key features of your project. We then produce an accurate timetable of what to expect and when that will enable you to accurately monitor progress. Finally we will estimate the amount of each valuation and give you predictions of when these are to fall due.

    Planning and structural designs 

    Our team of Project managers, builders and designers will manage this whole process: structural designs and calculations are drawn up to create a practical blueprint for your new living space and planning consents obtained, so the construction can begin. Greenlife Contractors provides the structural designs and calculations to create a practical blueprint for your new living space. When these detailed designs have been approved the job of construction can begin.
