GT Building Design | Glenn Thompson MCIAT | Garages


Would you like to convert your existing Garage into a habitable space, or build a new garage? Garage conversions will need an application for Planning Permission and Building Control Approval. New garages sometimes require neither, only drawings for your builder. I can advise and help you with your project, please feel free to get in touch with me to discusss. 

With over 35 years experience in Architecture my goal is to take care of all your architectural design requirements, whether you require plans drawn for obtaining planning permission or building control approval. I specialise in residential designs and can help with your Garage project. As a qualified member of CIAT I can guarantee you my expertise and a reliable, professional service. Please contact me for advice, no obligation. Thank you, Glenn 

Lansdowne Avenue, Newtownards (Garage conversion)

My clients wanted to convert their existing garage into a habitable room. They no longer used the garage for a car and it was a great space to convert having an existing WC and Utility space. By insulating the space, removing the garage door and adding a new window, adding double glazed sliding doors and rooflights this will be a great room. 

Ashley Park, Bangor (Replacement Garage)

The original garage was showing substantial signs of structural defects and needing replaced. Here are my drawings.

Bangor Road, Newtownards (Garage conversion)

My clients wanted to convert their existing detached garage to provide additional accommodation for family or friends staying over, to allow them to have their own separate space. What a great transformation and I hope you like. 

Ballyharry Park, Newtownards (New garage)

I prepared the plans, elevations, sections, details and specification for this new garage. CAD Drawing shown below.

Kendal Park, Newtownards (Garage conversion)

This project involved simply converting the garage into a habitable space with a new ground floor bedroom with ensuite facilities. Access provided from the existing hall, garage fully insulated, garage door replaced with a window and new rooflight positioned over the Ensuite. The front of the garage was also extended a little to provide a good sized double bedroom.
