Our Process

From consultation to design

Initial Consultation

It is important to understand what you are trying to achieve and how you will use the new space. We will discuss with you in detail how you currently use your space, and what you’re looking to get out of an extension.

We can then carry out a remote feasibility study for you and send you an indicative quotation for our professional services.

Once you are happy with our transparent pricing and process you can instruct us to take care of your project. We will begin the design process with a site survey. This is a mandatory site visit by one of our surveyors and best way for us to assess your project and gain the measurements and photos and to see your home in person.

We would be happy to come and meet with you to hear your ideas. We will discuss any design matters you are unsure of and suggest alternative ideas and layouts where guidance is needed. We will also advise you on any limitations that we foresee you are likely to encounter during the planning and building regulations stages.

Alterations can also be a key part to your project, it is possible that the existing space can be used to much greater effect by revising the layout. With some clever internal alterations, the requirements of the extension can sometimes be lessened and reduced in size.

Design

We will create a functional, aesthetic, practical and cost-effective plan for your budget.

We are aware that most of our proposals are time-conscious, especially regarding building schedules. Planning Application consents usually take around 8-12 weeks with your LA.

Upon appointment, we endeavour to conduct a site survey within 3-5 working days and the turnaround time for drawings we generally set at 2-3 weeks. Depending on the time of year and how busy we are, we can sometimes produce drawings in under 2 weeks.

Having worked in the planning sector for a number of years, we have built relationships with many tradesmen and contractors. Therefore, if you would like advice on construction works, get in touch for further details and we can produce a quotation for our support services at the construction phase.
