Retro-fit Basements

Retro-fit basements
Retro-fit basements refer to the process of converting existing underground spaces into functional living areas or usable spaces. With ever increasing house prices it’s becoming financially viable to add an extra floor to your house under the existing footprint. Typically, in conservation areas, where permission will not be granted extend and in listed buildings the addition of space underground can be the only way of increasing living space.
A retro-fit basement involves digging under the property and underpinning in stages to create a completely new sub-structure level whilst leaving the superstructure in place.

It can be an expensive construction process, costs of moving (solicitor’s fees, moving fees, estate agent’s fees, stamp duty etc.) soon exceed the cost of providing more space underground. This makes retro-fit basements even more attractive as the work can all be undertaken without having to move out. Disruption will be kept to an absolute minimum with nearly all works capable of being undertaken from outside.
