As a practice we are always keen to help clients with their ideas, projects at any stage. A feasibility study at the beginning in sketch form can be very helpful to explore a number of options to maximise the potential of a particular site and assess the best plan. To prepare some initial sketches allows freedom and flow of ideas, and often sparks other thoughts, avenues or concepts that could be considered. Once these have been progressed sufficiently enough, they naturally evolve to form drawings suitable planning application.
All planning work is undertaken ranging from planning investigations and advice through to submissions and appeals. The practice has a very good record at the planning stage which is largely due to the experience and knowledge held by its employees, but also the good relationship it holds with a handful of independent planning consultants. These factors contribute to achieving the result we need. Another contributing factor to our success is our attention to detail and quality of drawings which we pride ourselves in. These not only further assist our clients in realising their project, but also further assist the planning department too.
We have worked on projects that are sited within a conservation area, and have been very successful in achieving planning approvals. Works have included extensions to existing along with numerous private house commissions where a sensitive approach has been essential.
Building Regulations / Tenders
After planning application is granted we deal with local Building Control team to achieve building regulation approvals. We can also be involved in tender documents production as well as working drawings, specifications etc depending on size, contract type of the particular project.
Site / Construction
In most cases we continue the process from the drawing stage through to the construction and completion of the project on site. This includes site supervision, design team coordination, contractor, subcontractors and manufacturers installation drawings review and approvals process, but most importantly making sure that our clients are happy with the finish product.
