What is involved in a basement conversion project?


Start by getting a your Glasgow, Glasgow City basement builders or designers to assess the feasibility of a conversion or basement construction. Basement conversion, and basement excavation, is a highly specialised job and engaging specialist basement builders will ensure the job is completed safely with the least disruption to your neighbours and family.

Creating sufficient light for your basement is a crucial concern and so many basement conversions in Glasgow, Glasgow City will now be completed with additional excavations of surrounding land to create light wells or even a sunken terrace around the basement.
