Highlights

read more › ROC haus was born from the desire to have a company that would reflect the need of clients to work with a practice which could specialise in all aspects of the development industry, enabling clients to go to a company that is a one-stop-shop, from the beginning to the end of the development process. The practice was operating under the name of 'Sheeley & Associates' since 1981 and during this time developed a strong reputation within the Property industry around London and the outer boroughs for expert knowledge and a pragmatic approach to getting the job done.

We pride ourselves on constant communication with the Local Authority, ensuring the client is informed on developments in the application process as they happen. We design architecture in a way that suits the council's requirements whilst also meeting the client's needs. Persistent communication with the council during any planning application can sometimes be the difference between an application granted and an application refused.

Our team can assist in whatever way you need and give you knowledge of what is possible within the planning system.

There are specific guidelines which determine the number and/ or size of communal spaces required within a HMO depending on the number of occupants who will live there. In addition to providing alterations to the design of the house, we are also experienced with ensuring the property will meet the required regulations for multiple occupancy.

All advice is backed up by in-depth construction knowledge and a pragmatic and detailed mindset to problem solve and achieve a positive outcome for you, the client.

read more › We have therefore become fully immersed in the nature of Party Wall Awards and their negotiations on behalf of Building Owners (people carrying out the work) and Adjoining Owners (neighbours to the proposed site where work is taking place). The Building Owner is the person, people or company completing the proposed development works. It is your legal responsibility to serve Party Wall Notices, if necessary, on all affected Adjoining Owners to ensure that their interests are protected. This should happen prior to works starting on site and with enough time ahead of the project starting to allow Party Wall Awards to be formed.

read more › A key area of consideration is whether you feel happy & confident dealing with the management of the overall process including; builders, getting prices, dealing with the 'red tape' while maintaining your everyday life? On a day to day basis, problems and questions are likely to arise, therefore you need to consider whether you want to be and indeed can you be available, as well as have the knowledge to deal with them?. As part of our service, we would include taking your brief, preparing a detailed specification of works and drawings, obtaining tender prices from contractors and generally administering the project on your behalf staying organised and in a timely manner.

Schedules of condition can be prepared for either residential or commercial buildings. They create a complete record of the condition of the property on a particular date that can be used as a benchmark against which its condition can be assessed in the future and any changes identified. Schedules of condition may be prepared under the instruction of a landlord, a tenant, an employer, a contractor, or a neighbour.

Detailed communication with the Council was required for this scheme to ensure the amount of extensions required met the Councils design guidelines. Through continuous dialogue with the planning officer we were able to successfully secure the planning permission granted.

read more › An extension to the existing garage of a large family home in Theydon Bois to create a new 'work from home' office area. The clients had previously engaged another architect to assist with this project. The previous designs were over complicated, with different floor levels, insufficient headroom and the scheme was visually contrasting to the host property. We simplified the scheme and designed it to be in keeping with the original house whilst providing sufficient headroom for the clients needs.

We achieved planning permission for upgrading the existing timber framed windows from single to double glazing. Amazingly, the Council treated the project as the test case for upgrading to double glazed windows for the Borough. We were the first application to be approved of this type.

read more › This interesting project involved the demolition and replacement of 8 existing redundant garages with a proposed residential development to provide for 2 contemporary bungalows. There were various issues to be considered such as views of the property from neighbouring windows, height of the development at boundary line with neighbouring gardens as well as landscaping to the front elevations.
