Welcome!

If you are considering extending or altering your home we can help to provide full architectural design drawings to turn your thoughts into reality (on paper at least!) and in Virtual Reality !

 

You've come to the right place..

 

We are happy to provide advice over the phone in the first instance for your project

free of charge

We have over 30 years experience in the construction industry that provides for a smooth transition from the first draft design proposals and submission to Planning, to the more detailed drawing information for construction & Building Regulation compliance.

Following contact, we would discuss your requirements over the phone to establish how best we proceed to develop proposals for works you require, whether extension or alterations, etc.

 

Information is developed in 2 Stages as below:

 

Stage  1

All being well and your wanting to proceed based on the submitted quotation, we would either arrange to attend the property to carry out the survey or can develop proposals remotely where possible and if the client would prefer. 

 

Based on our initial discussions and brief we would develop Draft proposed plans and elevations for review. This would involve our review together online via shared screen software such as Zoom where we can amend the layout 'Live' to suit discussions. 

 

Information is modelled in 3d industry leading software 'Revit' that allows for internal & external views that provide a for great impressions of the proposal. For those that would prefer a greater level of appreciation, we can provide VR Virtual Reality  360 panoramic renders that will place you inside the new space for a more immersive and exciting experience! 

 

Once the proposals are agreed, the information will be prepared for the planning application and with your instruction we will assist for free to submit the application online for  you (application fee not covered).

 

Stage  2 

Upon receipt of Planning approval and your further instruction, we would develop the more detailed construction drawing information for Building Regulations. This will include dimensioned setting out plans, sections and relevant large scale details sufficient to build & accurately cost. This can often require the services of a Structural Engineer to confirm any steelwork calculations, size of foundations, joists/rafters, etc. This is a separate service that we can assist to request quotations from the engineers we tend to use on projects. 

 

These Stage 2 more detailed drawings will not only ensure and demonstrate compliance with Building Regulations but also provide for obtaining of more robust costs from builders.

 

Refer to Building Regulations for further relevant information on costs.
