As London space is at a premium, ‘iceberg’ homes – whole-house and under-garden basement conversions – are becoming more popular throughout the capital. A basement conversion can add a huge amount of space to your home and improve the value of the house when you come to sell. Hatch Construction have a wealth of experience excavating and building basement conversions, and have worked extensively throughout Clapham, Wandsworth, Fulham, and Wimbledon.
Investing in a basement conversion can significantly improve the value of your home, depending on the type and size of conversion. As properties in Central London can sell for up to £2,500 per square foot, the investment in your basement can be tripled. Estimates suggest that a basement conversion in Central London can increase the value of your property by 20%.
Our experienced team has worked with some of Londons finest architects to design and build beautiful, high specification conversions. Our partners can apply for planning permission on your behalf to make your conversion simply and stress free.
Our basements are used as family rooms, yoga studios, kitchens, guest bedrooms, and even home spas. They are designed and built to the highest standards to create functional, airy rooms that feel just like the rest of your home.
Light wells let in an unexpected amount of light so you will never feel like you are below ground level. Take a look at our galleries page to see our past work and see just how spacious your basement conversion could be.
Flexibility and Choice
You have a number of options to make the most of your underground spaces. While we complete full and half-footprint basements, which are usually retro-fitted (ie. below your existing property and not in an existing basement space) We can also create under garden basements to increase the square footage of your home. Speak to us about your requirements and we will make recommendations based on your brief and the options available for your home.
While stringent planning restrictions are placed on upwards expansion – particularly in conservation areas – only 10% of planning applications for basement conversions are currently rejected. Our architectural partners have a wealth of experience throughout London and are available to handle the entire planning process on your behalf. Their local expertise ensures that consent is gained quickly, without the need to resubmit.
We have completed many basement conversions throughout London and have earned a reputation for quality builds, excellent customer service, and innovation. Our 100% satisfaction guarantee means that we don’t consider a job finished until you are absolutely happy.
Our experienced gained over the years has led us to develop an efficient and clean building process to minimise disruption and eliminate mess while we excavate and build your basement conversion. All of our excavation work is completed under cover, so your garden and home are left clean and unaffected by the work below ground.
