Design Consulting

Design consulting

All our developments and the majority of our contracts to private clients are designed by our own in-house design team, having the extensive knowledge of design and construction we provide a competitive consultancy service to the general public and other businesses.

Services we can provide include the following :

  • Site surveys, including topographical survey if required
  • Full and outline planning applications
  • Building regulation drawings and specifications
  • Working drawings and full specifications
  • Structural calculations
  • Party wall notices served
  • Sap calculations and Energy Performance Certificates (New build only)

Contact our office on 01709 365 964 where we are willing to provide free initial advice.

We work closely with the client through the following stages, while we design your project :

We will visit your property and provide free advice and recommendations, with no obligation or costs involved at this stage.

If you like our advice and indication of cost for our services we will then provide a written quotation for a full design package, this is for the benefit of both parties as there should be no surprises of extra costs. The quote will also outline when the costs are needed and the sort of time scales you need to allow for the design stage of your project.

We will undertake a full survey of your property and discuss your requirements in more detail. For new build projects a topographical survey will more than likely be needed.

Draft plans of your project will be produced, of which we will provide you a preliminary copy for you to make changes as you feel required.

Planning permission may not be required, we will asses the requirement of the planning system at our initial survey and if planning is not required we will provide backup by form of letter from your council’s planning department.

If planning is required we will deal with submitting all the information and drawings required and liaise with the planners throughout the whole process.

We will produce the required drawings, specifications and calculations (if required) and submit them to the council’s building control department for approval.

Once all the drawings and required information have been approved, we will issue you with a full pack with several copies for you to keep and send to builders for quotations.

At this stage although all our work is complete,
we will still be willing to provide advice
to you while the project is under construction.
