1. Free Initial Consultation


We will have a no obligation meeting with you (usually at the site) to assess your design requirements and give you an idea of the costs involved. It is often best to do this as better advice can be given to you on the feasibility of your project and possibly discover any potential difficulties that may be experienced along the way. We may even suggest alternatives for your review.


Upon your request, we will then send you a formal written quotation detailing the work and the corresponding costs .At this stage we will also advise you of any extra third party expertise your project may require.


Possible third party reports and consultants:
o Party Wall Surveyor
o Structural Engineer
o Traffic & Transportation Reports
o Flood Reports


If you decide to proceed with your home improvement project we will produce your drawings ready for a planning application. Upon your request we can also submit them on your behalf to your council. We will monitor the application and liaise with the planning officer related to your application until outcome of the result.


2. Design & Drawings


After the job agreement, a full measured survey of your property will be carried out. We will then design the space according to your brief and prepare the proposed plans and related drawings. Usually we send the first draft of the drawings to the client before finalising it so that any minor changes can be incorporated in the drawing before issuing it to the Local Authority.


Our planning drawings are prepared according to the planning guidelines of the local authority and contain everything that may be required for a particular project to be successfully passed.


For most cases the drawings comprise of:
a. Existing and proposed floor plans
b. Existing and proposed elevations
c. Ordnance survey / site location plan
d. Sections as appropriate
