Rear Extension in Malahide

Brackfield Consulting have recently completed this modern and stylish extended living, kitchen and dining space in a large detached brick built property in Malahide.

The brief was to create a contemporary and light filled space in which the extended family could spend time together.

This was achieved by providing a single storey extension with brick finish and pitched roof with atrium light to match the existing style, finished with Alu-clad windows ensuring a light, modern and airy atmosphere.  A gas fire was included as a focal feature and secondary heat source to complement the extended underfloor heating system.

Brackfield Consulting provided full architectural services and BR SE 9202 Lead Consultant Opinion on Compliance upon completion; planning permission was not required as the size and scale of the project deemed it to be exempted development.

This project was complicated a little by the discovery of a substantial concrete beam in the original rear wall. Enlargement of the rear wall opening was safely achieved by providing a temporary works design covering the propping and the construction sequence.

Sloped flashings with proprietary cavity trays were incorporated into the existing rear brick wall in line with best practice.
