Building Conversions

We offer a wide range of high quality building services.

We have a wealth of experience converting existing buildings to new uses for both residential or commercial, where existing buildings we have worked with include barns, lofts and cold stores.

Our experience allows us to work with the materials of the existing builds to create a new environment, for both residential and commercial.

We are experienced at converting buildings to single residential use, e.g. barn conversations through to creating multi residential builds, e.g. cold stores being converted into 3 X 2 bed houses and commercial buildings from pre-existing buildings.

Loft Conversions

One of the questions we get asked the most, is how much is the cost of building a house extension? Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this. There are many different figures being thrown around when you search for this online. We could give you the average cost of an extension, but that would be based on our own average and not truly representative.

We know that each project is completely unique and treat each one as such. Therefore, each of our house extension prices will be as different as the properties are to each other.

What Our Clients Say

Andy Kingston

Cold Store Conversion

I have worked with numerous contractors over the last 20 or so years, and would definitely recommend the team at WRS. They’re a family run firm that cares about their jobs. Their positive and helpful approach throughout the build made the process run smoothly, and meant that issues, questions or variations were dealt with quickly and efficiently. They were a pleasure to work with

MRS. T. E. Hargreaves

Barn Conversion

I have been complimented on numerous occasions about the build and how it blends in with the original house. This is a direct reflection on the work of Wright and Ruffell
