JOURNEY TO YOUR DESIGN

STAGE 1
Survey/Self-Survey

First, once you choose to move forward with our service, we need to get some info. In most cases, this is a self-survey where you take rough measurements that we’re able to make drawings with. For larger projects, we visit the site.

STAGE 2
Design Meeting & Screenshot

Step 2 is where we show you our drawings and discuss your likes, dislikes, and how to move forward. We can do this both in person and via online meeting to help make things as easy as possible.

STAGE 3
Approval & Confirmation

Once you’re happy with the designs with any amendments, we’ll send you the first invoice. From there, we’ll issue your designs to you digitally, so you have them whenever you need them.

STAGE 4
Submit to Planning

The next step is to submit your drawings to the planning portal after we add a location map, consult any 3rd parties and writing the planning and design statements. The Portal will get in touch with your directly for their fee, and then forward your application to the local authority.

STAGE 5
Application Validation

Following the submission of your application, the admin & validation team from the local authority check the application fits the relevant criteria, before they validate it, send it back to us, and we forward it to you letting you know all the info you need.

STAGE 6
The Planning Process

After this, the Planning Officer will write to the neighbours, highways, environment, relevant utility services, etc regarding the application, and speak to the council and anyone objecting, too so it can be reviewed. They will then give you a decision date and begin to look through all of the information.

STAGE 7
Approval

Once a decision is reached, you will be updated by us. We will then advise you on the next steps. If the application is refused, we will be in touch to discuss redesign/submission. There is no application fee for resubmission within 12 months.

STAGE 8
Building regulations drawings

After approval of your planning application, we’ll move to building regulations. We’ll send you an invoice before then starting the detailed drawings to submit to Building Control. You can let us know if you have any new additions, amendments, or preferences as to construction here, too.

STAGE 9
Builder tender (If requested)

Once the drawings are approved, we will send the drawings to our recommended builders for quotations if this is something you have opted for. We advise getting quotes from at least 3 builders to verify their prices and to find the right builder to suit your project.

STAGE 10
Send drawing to BC and SE

Next up, we submit the drawing to Building Control and Structural Engineers as required. They let us know they have your application and check it against the 2013 legislation. Then, they write to us requesting amendments and clarification. We will update the drawings and answer the questions until we gain approval.

STAGE 11
BC Sign off and Approval Letter

Once the building regulations drawings are approved, we’ll get in touch and let you know immediately. We’ll send you the drawings you can give to your selected builder where they become principal contractor and take responsibility form there. Your Building Control Officer will attend when required as instructed by the builder to sign off each stage of the works.

STAGE 12
Receive drawings

Once the Building Control has signed off and approved the drawings, you will receive 3 large copies of the drawings in the post along with a completion pack. At this point our services will be finished unless you choose to use our project management service and we take things through to the completed build.
