When was the last time you went up in your loft? Is it little more than a dark and dusty dumping ground for old toys, clothes, Christmas decorations and general junk? Space is at a premium in London. But if you’ve found your dream home in a neighbourhood you love, feeling tight on space isn’t reason enough to move. At Fairview Construction Team Ltd, we undertake loft conversions of every kind. Our builders create bespoke new rooms that truly maximise the available space within the structure of your existing property.
Our company operates out of two offices – one in South London and the other in North London. With these twin premises in Bromley and Islington, respectively, we have the perfect launch pad for loft conversion projects across the city.
Loft conversions remain one of the most popular – and effective – ways of adding new habitable space to family homes and rental properties. In fact, they make an ideal solution if your garden is already on the small side, or if you have little to no land surrounding your house.
Whereas house extensions eat into your garden space, or sacrifice a side return, converting your loft makes the most of a structure that already exists.
This process allows our builders to turn an underused, musty environment into a stunning new room tailored to your lifestyle requirements and design aspirations.

From our two bases in Bromley and Islington, Fairview Construction Team Ltd converts lofts across all of London. Our company excels at the four primary conversion types.
These conversions are the simplest, most affordable and least disruptive option. Because we install one or multiple rooflights into the existing roof structure, your roofline remains unaltered. This is the perfect approach if your loft has ample headroom to start with. By adding rooflights, our builders lay the foundations for a personalised, light-filled room.
For these loft conversions, we build an extension to your home’s original roof. This new structure – known as a dormer – rises vertically out of the roof’s slope. The dormer’s interior has vertical walls and a flat ceiling, creating ample floor space and headroom. Due to their relative simplicity and impressive results, dormers are the most popular type of loft conversion in the UK.
This type of conversion is ideal for detached or semi-detached homes with a hipped roof. During construction, our builders strip your roof back to the top of the hip ends. We then extend the exterior side wall to the same height as the roof ridge. This flanking wall is known as a gable. By building a new roofing structure to connect the gable and the hip ends, we create a significant amount of headroom in the space below.
Due to the restructuring of the roof, these conversions involve a large amount of building work.
We construct these conversions at the rear of London properties. When complete, they have a flat roof and a distinctive back wall with an inward slope of 72 degrees. Small dormers usually house the windows. Because of the considerable alterations to your roof’s shape and structure, these conversions tend to need planning permission.
Based in Bromley and Islington, Fairview Construction Team Ltd delivers loft conversions of unmatched quality across London.
