Architectural Services & Design Management

We manage the whole pre-build process with your local authority for you, both planning and building regulations. The preparation and submission of the architectural plans that you require for your home extension or one off builds for Local Authority Planning and Building Control approval.

Building plans are prepared and submitted for local authority approval whether the plans are for a small rear extension or a new property the same attention to detail and care is given to your project. We include many things as standard on our drawings that other companies do not.

When any property is built or extended, it is vital to get the design right. We are here to make sure you get the design that suits your requirements in the constraints of the property and planning policy.
The effective management of design information and its co-ordination with procurement and construction functions is pivotal to effective project performance. Design information needs to be produced and issued promptly to enable components and systems to be procured and thereby constructed at the correct time.

With increasing client demands requiring more design consultants and an increase in specialised contractor design on projects, the effective coordination of design information is an increasingly complex task. We work closely with design managers and coordinators to support the design management function.

We produce, monitor and update dynamic design information programmes and help co-ordinate these with Construction programmes, which are normally produced by other parties. When construction work has commenced design information release requirements are carefully coordinated with construction progress and revised and updated “Information Required Schedules” produced for the team on an ongoing basis.

This service integrates the normally fragmented design and construction functions and enables potential delays caused by late or changed design to be clearly identified and mitigated up front. It is therefore a key dispute avoidance mechanism.
