None! The package is specifically designed so there is no need for Planning Permission or Building Warrant approval.

Because the size of each project is different we can book a surveyor to visit your property to discuss the full detail of the install, survey the area and give you a quotation for the works.

We can start onsite within 2 weeks of a deposit being taken, providing no additional approvals are needed for extra works.

Adjusting joists would require appointment of a structural engineer, structural design and Building Warrant approval. Providing the joists are not too obstructive, we can still insulate and plasterboard the space, however for the expense of adjusting the joists the project would be much more expensive.
