HI all, I hope I'm not repeating what someone else have said. But here we go. I'm looking to modernize my flat and at the same time build a loft space. I know it will be a nightmare as we most likely will need to rent somewhere else for longer. Do you advice going with design and build loft conversion companies to do all the works? Basically looking for one stop shop from submitting the plans for planning permission right up to 10 years guarantee for the loft conversion.  There are a couple I saw online but under if any of you worked with them. Nuspace, Smalofts, Central London Lofts and Simply Lofts.

Hi there, 

Hope you are well. I am an independent Architectural Designer working in and around South London. My firm is MLA Architecture Ltd and due to our small nature, we offer a tailored service to our clients.

We specialise in loft conversions, extensions and renovations. We offer the full scope of services from design conception, local authority approvals right through to contractor selection/contract administration and on-site monitoring.
We can provide direct phone contact for clients testimonials upon request as the majority of our clients become friends after the project. 

Hope this helps to give a background to MLA. 

If you would like to discuss further please feel free to call on 07952940184 or email at

Hey, I may be too late buttt...

We used a company called Hamilton Walters, I think I've put a recommendation up for them on here a while back? 

We where impressed with the detail of their quotation and the effort they out in initially. They kept us up to date throughout and gave good advice when required with regards to the build itself which resulted in an increase in our overall headheight.
The job was ran efficiently and although any building project comes with its own stress, they kept us in the loop with everything. 

Have actually got them back in for some roofing works on another one of our properties which is currently on-going and so far so good there as well!

His number is: 077 8000 4007 

Hope this helps!

Good luck :)

Thanks for the posts, contacted most of them and got quotes for a loft conversion in Battersea. Clapham Construction Service seem to be the best on meeting them and the quality of the quote. They also let me see their recent and current sites before decided. Haven’t used their design service, as we had this already, so can’t comment.

So far so good and 1 week ahead of schedule and impressed.

Details above are Incorrect - the directors name is dan and email is He is also the project manager

Hi All,
this post is quite old but was very useful to me when I was looking for loft conversion! After doing my research and having a few quotes in, we have decided to go with Clapham Construction Service which have been brilliant so far!!We are 2.5 weeks of completing the project and the team have been amazing. The quotes they provide includes EVERYTHING meaning, so it is guaranteed no to go over budget! I would RECOMMEND them highly!

Well where do I start... We have just endured the same process. Took slightly longer than hoped but these thing always do right?! Pleased to say the dust is finally settling and our new sofa arrives Tuesday. I got so into our home I even started an instagram page (sad I know but I can hide behind my screen and shamelessly post about hanging plants and colour charts)!! Still waiting for my breakthrough moment but check it out... @1morestorey

All jokes aside, we used a great guy as our architect, he was super patient, really thorough and new all the regs for our grand design - would highly recommend!

Me and my husband went through the whole process trying to get a suitable building firm to do our work.

We've now found a a building company that has come well within budget and doing an excellent job. The job is now two thirds complete. Please feel free to pop by the site if you wish to receive real first hand experience of what we went through. We're normally onsite on Saturdays.

Our honest advice is obtain references and visit examples of work that has been done recently or is in progress.

Hope this helps.

Hey all - just a note for anyone looking at loft conversions - Lambeth council now do NOT allow L-shaped conversions (ie the pod room over outriggers) - this is a very recent change and has caught many residents, builders and architects offside...

A local resident has set up a petition to ask Lambeth to allow L-shaped lofts under full planning permission as is the case in Wandsworth... and would be grateful for signatures! ... D=36078467

We do monitor this and will remove posts. So please be mindful when responding to a post as we don't want this thread to be clogged up with adverts.

Many thanks for your understanding.
