  • Do you have a minimum project value?
    Yes, we only take on projects with a minimum construction value of £50,000.
  • What are your fees?

  • I only want planning & building warrant approval, can you help?
  • Do I really need an architect?
    Maybe not.
  • Do I need planning permission?
  • How long will it take before I can start to build?
    We get asked this question a lot! For most domestic projects (extensions/alterations), we generally advise that it takes around 12 months from commencing the design work to starting the build, based on us providing a full service. However, this depends on a variety of factors including the availability of consultants and how long it takes the local authority to process and approve the planning and building warrant applications, all of which are out with our control. If your project is located in a Conservation Area, or if the existing property is listed, then the planning process could take longer.
  • We are looking to extend our house, can you help?
  • How much will it cost to build an extension?
  • Do I need a structural engineer?
  • What is a building warrant?
  • What is your lead-in time?
    Currently we have a lead-in of 2-3 months. However, during this time we are still able to carry out initial consultations and prepare the appointment forms to secure your place in the queue. If you project involves a barn conversion or new build house, then we can use this time to arrange for the measured survey/topographical survey to take place.
