A superior building design service that takes your ideas from concept to build
Whilst every home, design and concept is different, our tried and trusted 5 stage process remains the same for all house extensions, conversions and builds.
Our process takes you from an idea through to the build smoothly and efficiently. With effective communication at its core, the 5 stages are expanded upon below.
Stage 1 - Home Consultation
The first step is to meet at your property and discuss your thoughts, ideas and budget.
You can explain your vision of your future house extension, loft conversion or new build. Based on this vision, we can then advise on what is possible and discuss any ideas we may have.
Once instructed, we complete a full laser survey of the property to obtain precise measurements and exact dimensions.
Stage 2 - Design
We now have all the information required to begin the design phase.
Using computer design software, we produce several schemes for your house extension or loft conversion based on our discussions and measurements.
These schemes allow you to envisage the space and form that will be created.
Stage 3 - Design Approval
Our second visit provides a digital presentation of your schemes.
Your new house extension or loft conversion can now be seen to scale in the form of digital plans and sections.
The software allows instant changes and adaptations to the schemes to help you form decisions and approve your final design.
Stage 4 - Planning Application
On approving the scheme, we then finalise the drawings so that they meet local authority requirements for planning application submissions.
We will submit the relevant plans to the relevant authorities on your behalf and track your applications process throughout the 6-8 week decision period to ensure that things run smoothly.
Stage 5 – Technical Specification & Builders
Technical specification and builders
After gaining planning approval, we then incorporate all of the required technical information into the drawings that are required by the builder and for building control approval.
We can recommend good local builders we have used in the past and get quotes from them. As part of the service we shall also gain building control approval for your build.
