Initial Consultation and Budget Advice

At our free initial consultation we discuss your needs and wishes, the project feasibility, design ideas and different alternatives, along with anticipated build costs and budgets.
Design Proposals

Design Proposals

After our initial consultation and subsequent appointment, we carry out a full measured survey and develop the design brief into preliminary drawings, usually with several alternative proposals. We work very closely with you throughout this stage to ensure the final design most suits your needs. Using CAD (Computer Aided Design) and 3D software, we produce accurate, easy to read drawings as well as three dimensional illustrations of the proposed designs.
Planning Permission

Planning Permission

Once you have decided upon the design you are happy with, we produce the full drawings and documentation required for planning permission and submit the application to the relevant Local Authority. Please note, whilst we endeavour to do the very best for our clients and provide the best advice possible, we cannot guarantee planning permission will be granted as that decision is made by the Local Authority. 
Building Regulations

Building Regulations

Once planning permission has been granted, we prepare and submit all relevant drawings, specifications and documentation to obtain Local Authority Building Control Approval. This ensures the design meets all current Building Regulations.
Building Control Approval

Selecting a Builder

At the same time as submitting the plans for Building Regulation Approval, we send full tender documentation to at least three building companies inviting them to tender for your project. We then work with you to appoint the most suitable company to carry out the work.
