– FOR RESIDENTIAL ARCHITECTURE
We can manage the whole process on your behalf, from the application
& drawings to approval.
YOUR BUILDING REGULATIONS APPLICATION
After you receive your planning permission, you can begin your application for Building Regulations. We can really strengthen your proposal by including in the drawings all the following requirements:
- health & safety
You will have large scale plans of your design with elevations, sections, details about the construction logistics and material specifications. We can apply to Building Control on your behalf, and negotiate for you at the later stages.
In order to make sure the work follows Building Regulations, you will receive visits from the Building Inspector at key stages. Once the progress is complete, your Inspector will action your approval certificate, which – along with your notice of planning permission – are what a conveyancing solicitor requires to sell or buy any property.
– & TENDER
Our interior designers can inspire you about colour, texture and fixtures. Our team will guide you to reliable builders for peace of mind. We only recommend builders we have used and who have proven their work ethic. At this point, your design proposal will come to life.
By now you will have your permissions and a complete spec. for the shell of your development.
The interior design part adds styling and colour to your new build, and a very good finish. Obviously the main choices are yours, but our interior experts can be consulted as far as you wish for inspiration which will amplify and complement your original vision.
After our consultation, we will create drawings and schedules, together with specific information about the fixtures, fittings and construction.

TENDER & CHOOSE YOUR IDEAL BUILDER
One of your biggest decisions is finding a builder that is right for you. Choose someone you are comfortable with in your home. We do recommend experienced builders whose work ethic we trust. Any extra cost for a good builder is worth it in the end.
We can help you to manage the Tender process, and to produce the tender drawings and spec.s required. We can usually recommend two or three builders for you to look at, or we can guide on how to choose your ideal builder. We also give advice about strong contract terms to protect you. Contracts should include:
- Specific details on pricing, instalments, hours, insurance and their guarantee to you
- A policy for the resolution of Disputes
- Expectations of you and your builder during the works
- Mutual obligations during the process
- Protocol re any new additions to your proposal
- What happens when the builder needs more time?
