Not every project or design follows an exact process, but our experience has shown that the following process is an excellent guide.
stage 1 -survey: We will arrange to meet you at the earliest agreeable time to discuss your requirements and at the same time measure and survey the existing property / land.
stage 2: -sketch plans: The proposed plans will then be prepared within an agreed timescale from the date of survey. Any amendments / adjustments can be made to the plans to suit your needs.
stage 3:-planning application: The plans are submitted on your behalf to the local authority for planning approval, if required. This process usually takes around 8 weeks.
stage 4:-building warrant: The plans are submitted on your behalf to the local authority for building warrant. This process usually takes around 8 weeks.
During the period of the applications, without charge, we reply to local authority requests for minor alterations, changes and clarifications.
stage 5:- tender: Most people decide to employ their own contractor, alternatively we can invite a suitable number of competitive tenders from selected local contractors. They will be provided with copies of the necessary details including plans and specifications. .
