Before you can do any building project, you need to ensure that all
planning requirements are satisfied. Our architects and architectural
designers prepare the initial concept planning drawings to show exactly
what you propose to do.
When you are happy with the initial drawings, we then discuss the
proposals with the local planning authority to determine what planning
approvals will be required and make the planning application for you.
We follow the application throughout the decision process and give
you advice as and when needed. We recognize the importance of obtaining
planning permission for your project and we actively work towards
obtaining it for you.
Building Control Approval
Possibly the most important step in the design process is the
detailed design of your project. This is a separate process from the
Planning Permission and is needed to ensure that your building satisfies
the Building Regulations.
The detailed design drawings and specifications show all of the
technical and construction details of your project. This is the
information that the builder will use to accurately price and build your
This is also the information the Building Control Officer will use to check and approve the construction work as it progresses.
Having many years experience in building projects of all sizes, our
architectural design team can prepare everything necessary for your
house extension, loft conversion or basement conversion project.
