Why develop your London airspace

The benefits to leaseholders in London of airspace development are numerous.

Why South Coast Estates for London Rooftop Development ?

Minimal disturbance

We understand one’s home in London is an emotive subject and hence want the development process to be as pleasant and as quick as possible.

Off-site construction

We have brought together experts in the construction field with a keen eye for off-site construction which guarantees the highest level of quality control.

Reduced carbon footprint

Compared to traditional construction process, the reduction in lead times can lead to a significant reduction in carbon emissions and a cleaner world for us and future generations.

Reduction in service charge

Additional dwellings will lead to economies-of-scale savings for all the lessees at your London property.

Brand new roof guaranteed for 20+ years

With remedial work to roofs traditionally being the largest service charge cost in London, our projects guarantee the roofs for around 20 years effectively meaning no costs will fall on the leaseholders.

Upgrade building facilities

Where possible, we will look to upgrade the common parts, facade and services of the building with security improvements high on our list.

Increase in leasehold values

With all the work planned we believe the value of existing leasehold dwellings will increase.  A cleaner, safer and more aesthetically desirable building can add up to 10% to the value of a property.

Minimal disturbance

We believe a project’s success hinges on minimising disturbance for existing occupiers.  ‘Airspace’ development is our core business and as such we believe we have garnered the requisite skills to allow for minimal disruption to existing leaseholders.

Unlike traditional developers we are very familiar with the sensitivities of ‘airspace’ development and hence invest a lot of time in working closely with residents and key stakeholders.  We consider leaseholders as an aide to any potential project and not a hindrance.

Off-site construction

With each project we will always endeavour to explore the possibility of constructing elements off-site.

Such techniques greatly reduce project lead times which translates into minimised disruption for leaseholders.

What is more, off-site construction offers an unprecedented level of quality control unmatched by traditional construction techniques.

Aspects are fabricated under controlled conditions, using the same materials and designing to the same codes and standards as traditional construction.

Reduced carbon footprint

As a construction co. we take every step possible to reduce the effects we cause to the environment with off-site construction fitting perfectly into our mantra.

Fabricating aspects off-site generates less waste and leads to fewer site deliveries significantly decreasing carbon dioxide production.

In addition we endeavour to use sustainably sourced timber throughout the process.

Reduction in service charge

With the creation of additional dwellings the service charge percentage will reduce allowing for economies-of-scale savings.

Projects are designed to minimise the cost of ‘major works’ leading to a large lump sum saving through the upgrading of communal areas, facades and roof structures.  Such significant upgrades will lead to a reduction in annual remedial costs.

Brand new roof guaranteed for 20+ years

The biggest ‘headache’ for leaseholders and managing agents alike are communal roofs.  With the cost of replacement so prohibitive, remedial works are usually undertaken to stabilise any issues.  However this is just putting off the inevitable with such roofs needing complete replacement.

Our projects will lead to the creation of a whole new roof which comes with industry standard guarantees which usually exceed 20 years.  In a nutshell that means that any issues are covered by the warranty leading to a great saving for leaseholders.

What is more, it has been proven that leasehold values rise considerably with the knowledge of such roof guarantees.

Upgrade building facilities

Whilst undertaking our projects we commit to upgrading the fabric of individual buildings.

The common parts can be upgraded with new flooring, a fresh coat of paint, LED lighting, alarm systems and possible sky lights.

The facade can be repainted and in some cases re-clad to greatly improve the aesthetics and thermal quality of the building.

Other facilities such as bin storage, cycle storage, satellite/fibre upgrades can all be undertaken to buildings.

Increase in leasehold values

With all the work planned we believe the value of existing leasehold dwellings will increase.  A cleaner, safer and more aesthetically desirable building can add up to 10% to the value of a property.
