Our range of services
Whatever design you require, we offer a full range of planning, design and project magement services to help you achieve your aims.
After the initial design visit we then send you the tidied up version of the sketches prepared with you during the initial visit. We also enclose your further services menu.
HOME OWNER'S CONSULTATION SERVICE
The further services menu lists the next steps we suggest you take to move your project forward. These will have been discussed during your initial visit so you will already have an understanding of what is involved.
It could be that you'll require a full or part measured CAD survey and factor in time for preparing much more accurate drawings.
You might need to consider the need for Scheme level drawings for planning applications and/or building regulations applications.
It is likely we will have to consult with other specialists such as a structural engineer, a party wall surveyor, a quantity surveyor, garden designer etc. We will be able to find whose help is required and co-ordinate with them on your behalf, if you wish.
We could also source and check contractor details and prepare tender documents for you .
Site visits and meetings might be another consideration.
It is your choice, and we shall advise you of all the necessary steps for your project.

There are three dimensions to sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. The planning system seeks improved performance in all three, and we can assist in the following ways:
– contributing to protecting and enhancing the natural, built and historic environment;
- improving biodiversity, using natural resources prudently, minimising waste and pollution, and mitigating and adapting to climate change including moving to a low carbon economy.
- moving from a net loss of bio-diversity to achieving net gains for nature;
- replacing poor design with better design;
- improving the conditions in which people live, work, travel and take leisure;
- widening the choice of high quality homes.
