Wrap-Around Extension

Wrap-Around Extension


The client wanted to extend their semi-detached house, to create a large open plan ground floor, this required a wrap-around extension (to the rear and side) the project also included a loft conversion.

The required work need a party wall agreement with the neighbouring property. EB worked with the client’s architect and we provided the structural engineer.


Work undertaken included:

  • Wrap around extension required steel box frames to maintain the integrity of the load bearing walls.
  • Extension foundations had to compensate for nearby tree roots – deeper
  • Ground works – drainage and new water supply
  • New floor joists, insulation, underfloor heating, flooring
  • Recessed skylights
  • Heating and water system
  • New electrical system
  • Kitchen installation
  • Bi-fold doors – bringing the patio and garden into the large family room and kitchen

Many of these requirement are typical elements needed for an extension.

The project has created a beautiful kitchen and family room flooded with natural light.
