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


Happy to provide advice over the phone or face to face to talk to you about your project, free of charge


We have over 30 years 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.



Simply Stage 1+2

Following contact, I would look to attend the property to review your requirements and progress in stages as below:


Stage  1

All being well and your wanting to proceed based on the submitted quotation, I would attend the property to carry out a measured survey and develop 'existing' status information. This will include floor plans, all elevations of the property and site boundary plan.


Based on initial discussions we would use these plans to develop draft proposed plans and elevations for review. This would involve our attending the property again to review the proposals on the computer to allow your direct input to the design.

Information is modelled in 3d software that allows for internal & external views that provide a good indication of the proposal. For those that would prefer a greater level of appreciation, we can provide VR visualisation  (headset - is pretty awesome) , panoramic renders and video clip animated fly-through indication.


Once the proposals are agreed, the information will be prepared for the planning application (where required).


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 and cost that can be arranged if required. 


Refer to Building Regulations for further relevant information on costs.
