Building Up: Adding Additional Storeys
With pressure for growth and land values at record levels in certain areas, property experts are seeking innovative ways to deliver high quality developments at increased densities.

It is estimated by Knight Frank that 40,000 homes could be constructed on top of existing buildings in central London alone. There is planning policy support. We consider whether this is enough to rise above the challenges facing rooftop construction.
