How can Swift help you?

The first step is your enquiry: maybe an email from this website, or perhaps a phone call. Whichever way, we spend some time finding out what you want, how we can help you to realise your dream, and most importantly, fulfil your expectations.


...our system is focused on producing an extension that exceeds your expectations and is not limited by standardised production systems or our tastes overtaking yours. Therefore, you can simply concentrate upon what makes your family and friends say “Wow!” when they see your investment for the first time...and the second...and the third...!

Often, before we meet in person, we exchange ideas, photos and basic proposals... giving you time to totally absorb yourself in the ideas and aspirations you have for your new space. We work to your timeframe, your ideals and your budget to develop an extension that’s not just fit-for-purpose, but one which excites and delights you. You want a home extension that you’re be proud of. We listen carefully, and then get creative.

Then we arrange to carry out a site survey. Part of this time is spent learning more about what you want from your new space. We also take measurements, check levels, look at accessibility for materials and equipment, locate services, study the existing environment and identify potential challenges, and all the other factors that influence the successful outcome of your project.

After leaving you, we then work on creating a document that guides and lead you to a design and specification that suits your aspirations and your budget. This may be reached in a couple of days, or it may demand more discussion and investigation to reach your perfect solution. We give it the respect it deserves.
Depending upon your aspirations, we may quickly arrive at an extension that matches your requirements and we can make a start on the installation process with minimal delay... OR

.... maybe you want something that is totally individual and has a strong style that sets it apart from anything else that you have seen in your research. Fantastic! “Bring it on!” is what we say! We have a team of designers and engineers who can produce a new space for you that’s totally unique. What makes you excited? Art Deco, ultra modern, traditional rural or urban chic? We love to create new styles - so please allow your hopes to fly!

When the concept is approved by you, the next stage is started. In some cases this involves the submission of a planning application. Sometimes however, your extension can proceed under Permitted Development Rights. In either event we are able to offer full advice and support for your project.

Once the project has the required approval, we advise you of the lead-in time, agree a mutually convenient date for starting the build, and keep you informed every step of the way. Sound communication with our clients is a major strength of the Swift team and you’ll see that all of our testimonials reflect this much sought-after customer requirement.

The beauty of our system is that a large proportion of your new building is prepared off-site in a dedicated factory. Once the ground-works and preparations are complete this makes for a fast and exciting installation process.

Just like those dramatic build sequences on TV programmes, the first few days of your extension sees the preparation of the footings and ground-works, and then the drama unfolds! Over the next few days the floor, walls and roof are skilfully erected in large, pre-prepared sections.

The usual waste, mess and disturbance which are normally associated with some other building practices are greatly reduced in our process. You are given realistic and honest appraisals of what to expect and wherever possible we always take your special requirements fully into account.

At the end, we give you a beautiful extension that’s ready for your immediate use and enjoyment. We love our job and our aim is always to end with a smile of satisfaction and delight...from everyone!

Planning Permission and Building Regulations

Planning permission may be required for your extension, subject to various regulations and guidelines. Even when the official line is that you can proceed with your home extension under Permitted Development Rights, we explain the benefits of establishing legal permission for your project. To date we have a 100% success record with the numerous planning applications that we have handled for clients throughout the UK. Some have been complicated and have gone through the committee process... and they have all resulted in the permission being granted.

Building regulations are there to ensure that your structure is safe, long-lasting, economical and efficient. We handle all of the building regulation issues for you, making sure that your building meets or (as is more often the case) exceeds all building regulations requirements.
