Planning & Design
We offer a free consultation to discuss your project and ideas you may have. The consultation can take place in the office or if its more convenient it can take place on-site. It is often more beneficial to have the meeting take place on-site as this allows us see the existing conditions.
We prepare and compile all relevant documents and drawings necessary to create a valid planning application. Typically planning applications consist of house drawings, site drawings, site surveys, site suitability assessments, public notices and completed application form.
Often it is advisable to meet with the area planner prior to proceeding with the application.
Your application pack will then be submitted in person to the local council on your behalf.
Whether you are building a new home or extending your existing home we would ask you to bring a list of your ideas with you to the consultation. A preliminary design is created and presented to you. This design will be tailored around your ideas, needs and requirements and more importantly your budget.
Once a design has been agreed, detailed planning drawings are prepared for the planning application.
On obtaining planning permission detailed construction drawings are prepared for the builder.
Specification details on how to achieve a high level of insulation as required under the new building regulations, are included in the construction drawings.
We provide a detailed build cost estimate to ensure that your proposed project is within your budget.
