House Extensions in Huddersfield

House extensions are massively popular in the Huddersfield area as well as the rest of the county. They’re an amazing way to give a whole new angle to your home, providing you with the features that matter to you the most without having to give up space elsewhere. Single storey extensions provide amazing ways to add practical space like kitchens, ground floor bathrooms, utility rooms and living areas, and double-storey extensions give all that and even more with the exact same space upstairs, too.

Our architectural designers will work with you through every step of your project to make sure that it is created with your preferences, style and the purpose you want the extension in mind at every turn. Whether it be a side, front or rear extension, we have all of the skills required to give you the best quality of work.

Loft Conversions in Huddersfield

We also provide loft conversion designs and project management in the Huddersfield area, as this is one of the most popular and most affordable home renovations there are. Adding one is an amazing way to utilise the space that you already have in your home and convert what is often poorly used storage space into your own personal added storey, purpose-designed for whatever you’d like to do with it.

Working with us, you have the opportunity to design your loft to fit exactly what you’d like to do with it, whether you need a dormer loft conversion to utilise your own games room or a new master bedroom, as well as more standardised options like a classic roof light loft conversion to make a creative space to relax, to study or even somewhere for family time.

Process of application

We know exactly what is legally required to be in place before you begin building your house in West Yorkshire. Our clear planning application extension plans present your design in the correct scales, site maps, and every other necessary component to validate the application.

We will check the design against the planning guidance such as overdevelopment, impact on the street scene, right of light, overshadowing, loss of amenity and outlook, massing/dominance, loss of privacy, and other factors that could affect the project.

New Build House Designs

Building houses and other properties from scratch is another thing that is rapidly growing in popularity. Self builds as well as new build developments can be a great way to utilise the land that Huddersfield has to offer at lower prices than buying may pose. After registering your interest with the Kirklees council, we come on board to help make sure the right designs are in place for the highest chances of success with planning, building control and all other parts of the building process too.

We work with you to create the design best fitted to your requirements, from budget-friendly starter homes through to advanced eco-homes that will protect your wallet and the planet for years to come. We also provide additional services such as 3D visualisation as well as project management services to carry out the entire build alongside you.

Building Project Management in Huddersfield

Building and construction on any scale might not be the easiest process. There’s a lot of different aspects involved in making your design come to life, and having experts at the helm can make sure that quality and efficiency are at the heart of every step of the way.

We work with you and the builder directly to make sure things run as smoothly as possible, preventing and quashing any issues should they arise, and generally making sure that the standards of your project are as high as they can possibly be with our extensive project management service.

Exactly what I wanted. No sales rubbish, no broken promises. They did exactly what I asked for, right first time, for the exact price quoted. I'd definitely use the company again.

Excellent service and communication. The company correctly and quickly identified my requirements, and worked accurately and within (very reasonable) quotation. Any queries and additional dimensions or details which the design engineer had, were clearly requested, allowing me to be able to quickly furnish the exact information and measurements, and negating the need for site visits, thus keeping costs in check. The first draft of the engineering drawings were very impressive - as a project engineer involved in the materials handling industry, I am well used to working with and interpreting CAD drawings, so was able to appreciate the high level of detail and clarity therein. I have been pleased and impressed with the service provided and care taken by CK Architectural, in bringing this part of my project to a successful conclusion - the Local Authority Building Control department accepted the drawings and specifications at first draft, without any amendments or changes. I am happy to recommend this company to anyone seeking a friendly, helpful, skilled and professional service.

CK Architectural led us through our whole project of two significant extensions from start to finish. At the outset during concept the input was both practical and creative. Several of our own ideas were improved upon and other ideas added. The creation of the designs was collaborative with CKA listening to our needs and wishes and incorporating them as practically possible. The budget was agreed with CKA and they kept a tight lid on the finances. The initial plan was actually built within budget, and we just crept over due to a couple of unforeseen changes, such as the roof tiles to match current being discontinued and therefore we chose to have a new roof. CKA made frequent visits to site and it always felt as if they had the project under control. It is not until you embark upon a venture such as this, as a novice, that you realise how complex it all is. However, with CKA leading the way on drawing completion, obtaining planning permission, appointing reputable contractors and managing Building Control eveything felt smooth and was stress free for us as the client. For the service we received we thought CKS priced their involvement very fairly.

For someone far removed from the building / planning industries the thought of where to start when thinking of a big extension project to my house (two story to the side and wrap around of semi-detached 3 bed) was a little daunting at first. Luckily, after obtaining a competitive quote, I enlisted the services of CK Architectural and have been very impressed with not only the service received but the ease at which they have made the whole process. After listening to my thoughts and the reasons for needing the extension work doing, the architect came up with a great design that encompassed everything that was needed. Even when I changed my mind over a couple of aspects, Donna, Chris and the team were quick to administer any alterations. Every visit to the house for measurements / planning etc has happened without a hitch with all members of the team we've encountered being punctual and professional at all times. The best thing has been by far the ease at which CK have made of getting all council and local authority sign off for the project. All I have needed to do is pay the fees at the required time, no stress involved and all went through seamlessly. I'm now at the stage where I have the drawings to hand and have submitted them to builders to obtain quotes. Importantly, the feedback so far from the builders indicates the project to be within the budget specifications I explained to CK during the first consultation. Very happy customer 🙂 Carl.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueHighly recommend CK Architectural. Chris and his team did a great job gaining planning permission for a new build and renovation of an existing property. We hit some dead ends with the planning officer but Chris found different ways of getting around the problems without going over budget.

We have use the team at CK Architectural on 2 projects of ours over the years. They have never let us down. They have always worked with us to produce the designs we wanted and handled everything for us through the Planning and Building Control stage, keeping us updated at the carious stages. We will most certainly use again if we decide to do another project.
