Simple 5 step process
We will take you through the complete pre-build process, from your initial ideas, creating your plans for planning permission, submitting your building regulations application until you obtain approvals through a simple 5 step process:

Step 1 - Free design consultation
We offer a free design consultation at your home where your local surveyor will discuss your ideas and advise you on the best way to extend and improve your home. We will then decide which route to take, either Permitted development or Full Planning application.

Step 2 - Electronic measured Survey
Once commissioned, we will undertake a full electronic measured survey of your home and produce a proposed design for your approval, usually within 48 hours.

Step 3 - Produce drawings
Once you have approved the design we will draw up the plans for planning permission ready for submission to the local authority. This is usually done within 10 working days.

Step 4 - Submit Plans to local planning authority
Once you've given final approval we then submit the planning application plans on your behalf to the local authority, where we liaise with them in order to achieve approval. You can monitor progress through our online system which automatically notifies you whenever there are updates to your application. This process usually takes 8-10 weeks.

Step 5 - Produce building regulations applications & specifications
Once planning has been approved, building regulations drawings & specifications can be produced for submission to your local Building Control department. This also includes any structural elements for which structural calculations may be required.

Plan drawings and specifications can also be used to get precise quotes from builders of your choice , or those we can recommend.

"I was unsure how to go ahead with my extension and had received a lot of conflicting information and high cost quotes for the work. David was helpful to talk through different options and how to get the appropriate plans and building regulations done most quickly and cost effectively. Also to recommend builders that would be best for this work which is now complete and has got me what I wanted within my budget"
