Basement extensions are an increasing popular way to add additional space however many London boroughs are making it increasing difficult to achieve planning permission.

Planning applications often require detailed proposals for how the basement will be constructed safely, taking into account the specifics of the local ground conditions and proposed works. These reports are commonly referred to as Basement Construction Method Statements (CMS) or Basement Impact Assessments (BIA) and must be prepared by an experienced Chartered Engineer.
