There have been major relaxations to planning rules where government policies have allowed homes and commercial office buildings to have extension building done up to 8 metres. These allow homes and office buildings to undergo proper evaluation by professionals to cross check whether extensions can take place with no hindrance in the existing structure. IEO provides qualified engineers to check your households. There are extensive guidelines for properties, some of which are listed below:
• Properties cannot exceed 50% of the total area of the building undergoing extension
• Extension does not happen on the road facing side
• Single storey houses cannot exceed 4m in height.
• Two storey houses will be limited to 3m in length.
The company has already worked extensively for property maintenance across London. The evaluation and certification of the engineers are important step towards clearance of the property extensions.
