Architectural Services for new houses, extensions, alterations and conversions.
Traditional, modern and eco designs depending on individual preference.
Small practice based in Malvern with work generally throughout Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.
Projects further afield can be catered for with email, skype, facetime etc. for meetings and drawing transfer.
All work is carried out on computers.
This gives great design flexiblity, meaning that designs can be altered until you are happy with the result and drawings can be shared electronically.
A range of drawings are available and quoted for separately depending on your requirements
Drawings for Planning Permission.
These include an on site survey, sketch design stages, unlimited meetings,
final design drawings, filling in forms and presenting the design to the Planning Department.
Drawings for Building Regulation Approval.
These are more detailed technical drawings typically carried out after Planning Permission has been granted to cover the latest Building Regulations which relate to elements such as foundations, structural integrity, amount of insulation, drainage layouts etc.
Not everybody chooses to go through this stage because building regulation approval can be granted purely on Building Control's on-site inspections at various stages of the build.
Having these drawings will help you obtain more accurate quotes from builders and make it less likely that extra unforeseen costs will be added to your bill.
They give you the reassurance that the design you have is a current and up to date one and enable a builder to plan in advance how he/she is going to proceed with the build.
Three dimensional colour images and walkthroughs.
These are not needed for any permissions but can help with visualisation
either at sketch design stages or as final design images which can accompany
the Planning Drawings.
Continuing support after drawing stages.
I am available on-site or via telephone and computer for advice as the need arises during
the build period.
If deemed necessary I can discuss alternative solutions with builders, Building Control or the Planning Department at no extra cost.
