STAGE 1 [Consultation Meeting]

This is the first stage of any design project.  So that we can offer the best advise we will normally need to visit the property but this will also provide an opportunity to help with questions like;


  1. Do we have any scope for extending?

  2. Which options are most cost effective?

  3. Will we need Planning Permission? 

  4. What will it all cost?

  5. How long will it take?


This is a two way discussion and it allows us to develop a better understanding of what you are trying to achieve. This initial meeting is a free service and before any work is undertaken we provide a detailed fixed price quotation.


STAGE 2 [Site Survey]

Before any detailed layout drawings can be produce we will need to undertake a simple site survey taking key internal and external dimensions.


STAGE 3 [Design Development]

Based on our discussion during the initial meeting and using the site survey drawings as a base we will produce the first draft layout for your project.  These initial drawings will then form the basis for review where alternative options or design suggestions can be put forward and discussed.


STAGE 4 [Planning Application]

Once the design is finalised we then add detail and other elements required by the planners, complete the application form and submit. Following submission we may be asked to change the design by the planners, this is usually straightforward. The important thing is that there are no charges for these revisions.


Stage 5 [Building Regulations]

You now have permission to build and will need to consider building regulations. Our standard drawings include all the detail needed for your builder to complete the works using a Building Notice, or you may prefer to complete a Full Plans Application.
