Our initial consultation is free and will take place at your property. From the comfort of your own place you can take us through your vision for that dream home improvement. Whether you have the finest draughtsman’s artwork and a detailed mood board or the just an image in your head with a few sketches on Post-Its, we’ll guide you through the process step by step.
Our consultant will take time to understand your ideas and work out the best way to achieve them. Any concerns you have, from structural issues to planning worries, we’ll make sure they are dealt with. Using still photography, modelling software and plain English we’ll explain what’s feasible within your desired budget. We love ideas and relish the challenge of thinking creatively to find imaginative solutions while staying on cost.
You have the idea so let’s get it down on paper. Before approaching the planning department or finalising the quote we need to create some plans. We work with a great team of independent architects offering all the necessary drawings to obtain planning approval. A fully detailed specification incorporating 2D and 3D design is provided.
Following your consultation we will decide on the most suitable architect for your project. Once the drawings are completed they will be passed to the council’s planning department. Following your consultation, you are not locked into this design. Any later changes to the drawings will be made free of charge subject to the contract with the architect.
Some projects, even the small ones, may require planning permission from your local authority. We will assess whether your project needs such permission and what route to take to secure approval. Some extensions do not need a full planning submission.
Following our consultation and working with the architect we will apply on your behalf and liaise with the relevant departments to ensure the application is dealt with as promptly as possible.
Building regulations cover the building logistics of your project, whereas as planning regulations refer to the look of your extension. Building regulations require all aspects of structural changes to be detailed.
We work with a highly qualified structural engineer who will assess your project and provide all relevant structural calculations. Rafters, beams, joints, whatever structural changes you need, we’ll have them covered.
You will be provided with an in-depth, clearly detailed quote that lays out all aspects of your project’s costings. Our quotes are provided by Richard or David. Both are fully chartered quantity surveyors who have great knowledge and experience which they are happy to share.
We believe that budget is often the main worry for our clients. Together and with the Quantity Surveyors we go the extra mile with each quote. We spend time going through it with clients and the quote structure, spaced clearly over far more pages than the average quote, providing a detailed breakdown making them far easier for you to comprehend.
You will need a Buildings Regulation Certificate which confirms that all works have been carried out in accordance with required regulations. This is where building control comes in. The building control officer will visit your site at various stages during the project to ensure that the works are being carried out to the required standard.
You can use the council’s officer or a privately registered one.
The Party Wall Act of 1996 safeguards you in respect of your project’s effect on any party wall while also protecting the rights of the adjoining neighbour. The Act protects the owner undertaking the works, through the party wall surveyors, by guaranteeing that the work is lawful.
