SERVICES

Design

 

We are able to speak to you about your project from the inception and suggest an initial meeting to discuss your ideas. We can offer design advice both internally and externally in an attempt to meet your brief or exceed it. If you decide you would like us to work on your project our normal approach is to conduct a full measured survey of your property so that we can create computer generated plans & elevations which we use to provide a sketch scheme.

 

 

Planning

 

We act as a planning agent and consult with the Local Planning Authority on your behalf and will hopefully achieve planning permission for your project. We have a lot of experience in obtaining Listed Building and Conservation Area Consents and many of our projects are located within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). We treat each scheme individually and offer a considered approach working with Planning Officers to achieve a successful outcome.

Building Regulations

 

We offer a technical service to produce plans and a specification that demonstrates our design meets current regulations such as fire escapes, insulation, ventilation and drainage. We are also able to offer design solutions to conform with Part M of the Building Regulations, ensuring people with disabilities are able to access and use buildings.

 

 

Contract Management

 

We are able to help you select suitable local builders and obtain competitive prices through the tendering stage. If you proceed we can monitor progress of the project to get in onsite and then oversee the co-ordination of the construction through to successful completion. We are also able to act in the CDM co-ordinator role where required and can help to arrange the necessary obligations under the Party Wall Act.
