The Process

The Process

Most building projects need to be instigated by the following process before you can build:-

  • FORMULATE BRIEF – ASSESS FEASIBILITY
    I need to know what do you want – assess if it can be built  –  and within your buget.
  • SITE SURVEY
    I need to undertake a measured and photographic survey of the existing buildings and surrounding site then produce survey drawings.
  • SCHEME DESIGN
    I will produce initial sketches for discussion – we will review your brief – I will develop the design with you and discuss the estimated build cost
  • PLANNING PERMISSION
    I will guide you towards a design that is broadly in line with the local authority’s current planning policies but before a detailed planning application (and Listed Building Consent application if necessary) is submitted we should review the agreed scheme to anticipate where there may be issues with obtaining Planning Permission.
    • DETAILED TECHNICAL DESIGN
      Good design and quality construction is in the detail – I will prepare detailed construction drawings for you and your builder to ensure that the whole build has been carefully thought through to avoid expensive alterations during construction – or disappointment with the end result. It is also best to get Building Regulations approval before work starts on site to ensure compliance with energy conservation requirements, fire safety regulations, environmental health and safety regulations and  access requirements for the disabled etc… without compromising the scheme design

I have experience and expertise, in all these areas, to enable you to bring your plans for new a new building, improvements and/or extensions to completion.
