For householder clients, our free consultation is the first step to evaluating the project. We aim to work with you to set the primary and secondary considerations for the project and formulate a design criteria from that. We use a rapid floorplan generation tool that allows us to create alternative layouts on site, giving immediate visualisation to your ideas.
Once a direction is chosen, the project becomes split into two parts. Planning forms the first requirement, and we can advise on whether a project requires planning or if it can be moved on under permitted development. If planning is required, we will submit the application, manage the process and where applicable attend meetings.
The second part is to achieve building regulations compliance, which consists of the detailed drawings and specifications required for the build, and in most cases, it is these drawings that any builder or contractor will give you to achieve a formal quotation for any building project. We can recommend contractors if needed, having used a small team of existing contractors for several years.
