Free initial consultation

We can call at your home to discuss your ideas, offer suggestions and advice and explain the various processes involved. At the consultation we will also explore your Permitted Development rights and advise whether to submit a  Planning application or a Lawful Development Certificate. A quotation will be sent to you, all our fees are fully explained  and all services are clearly outlined before we begin so that you know exactly what you will receive.

 

Measured survey

For a planning application, Lawful Development Certificate application or building regulations approval application you will need an accurate set of architectural plans showing both the existing property and the proposed extension. If you decide to accept the quotation we will conduct a measured survey of the property and produce a proposed design scheme, usually within  2-3 working days.  A measured survey will usually take a couple of hours.

All drawings are produced on the latest Computer aided design technology giving you the guarantee of quality technical drawings at a competitive cost. We will then email or post them to you. At this stage the drawings may be altered  or tweaked to accommodate any changes you may decide upon.

 

 

 

Some clients find 3D modeling useful at this stage as it can help them envisage the finished build but it is entirely optional ( 3D modeling starts at around £59) .

 

 

 

 

 

 

Produce Architectural Drawings

Once you have approved the design, a full set of detailed architectural plans are drawn up for your approval, usually within 7 -10 working days.

 

Submit Plans to local South Worcestershire planning authority

Once you have approved the plans we will complete and submit all the necessary forms electronicaly to the appropriate local council. Once submitted the application goes through a verification process and once verified the local authority have 8 weeks in which to give a decision. During this period we will liaise with the planners to ensure everything is progesssing satisfactorily, sometimes just by talking to the planning office and ascertaining whether they need any further information or whether a small change on the plans is required, an application which may otherwise have failed can gain approval.

 

Building Regulations

Once planning has been approved, building regulations can be produced for submission to your local building control department. This also includes any structural elements for which structural calculations may be required or a SAP assessment may be required.
