Our Fees & Services

Feasibility Drawings Enquiry service is a stand alone introduction for designs, concepts and possible directions for a site or development. During this initial stage a maximum of two options will be covered. We will liaise with the local authority about your approved scheme, to understand the feasibilities  of gaining “Planning Permission” or a “Lawful Development Certificate” before the client decides to progress with the one or two storey extension, garage or loft conversion in London or beyond.  These drawings may also be used to gain approximate builders quotes for your extension or conversion.

This service includes the following:
  • 1. General Laser Measure Survey of Property.
  • 2. Produce Technical drawings of Existing Property.
  • 3. Produce Technical drawings of Proposed Scheme.
  • 4. Local Authority liaison about feasibility of the proposal.

  • Planning Submission

    Planning Submission service is the process of gaining Local Authority approval for the proposal for the one storey extension, two storey extension, garage conversion or loft conversion within London by either submitting a “Planning Application” or “Lawful Development Certificate”.

    This service includes the following:
  • 1. Produce Final Drawings for Submission.
  • 2. Produce Ordinance Survey Map & Location Plan.
  • 3. Complete Planning Application Forms
  • 4. Submission and Management of application to Local Authority (Agent Service).
  • In the unlikely event planning permission for your extension or conversion is refused resubmissions requiring very minor alterations such as “reducing an extension by 1m etc” will be free of charge. The above fees do not include the local authority fee.

    Building Regulation Submission

    Building Regulation Submission service is the process of gaining Local Authority approval for the proposal’s construction, whether you are planning on a two storey extension or loft conversion in London or beyond. Once the technical information in the form of specification and drawings are approved, these can then be handed to a competent contractor to commence works.

    This service includes the following:
  • 1. Meeting with Client to finalise Proposal.
  • 2. Produce Technical drawings and Specification for Local Authority Approval.
  • 3. Complete Building Control Application Forms.
  • 4. Submission and Management of application to Local Authority (Agent Service).
  • 5. Revisions until Local Authority Full Approval or Conditional Approval is given.
  • Other Works
Structural engineer’s calculations or S.A.P’s may be requested by local authority. These fees will be agreed with the client before works commence.

    Call today to arrange a FREE CONSULTATION to discuss your project.

    All fees are subject to property size, location and complexity of proposal and do not include Local Authority Fee’s where applicable. Terms & Conditions Apply.

    What we Offer

    • 1
      Home Extensions
      A simple solution to gain extra space is to build an extension to your existing house rather than move homes.
      The recent change in the Permitted Development Rights means most Extensions can be built without Planning Permission. Call us now to check.

      From a small kitchen extension to a complete redesign of the house, we can manage the Planning and Building Control Process on your behalf. Our Drawings are clear and accurate, and our service is Fast and Affordable.
    • 2
      Loft Conversions
      Loft Conversions are great way of using the dead space in your loft.
      Like with Extensions, the current Permitted Development Rights would allow you a modest size loft space, giving maybe that all important extra double bedroom with en-suite. Call us now to check.

      Again we can manage the Planning and Building Control Process on your behalf leaving you to decide where to store the junk that was in the loft all those years.

      Engineering Calculations
      The preparation of detailed engineering calculations and substantiation documentation is a crucial part of most engineering design projects.
      During detailed design performance and sizing calculations are vital to ensure the rapid convergence of the design to a physically viable solution.  When introducing new products many industries also require detailed calculations of structural strength and performance to be completed as part of the product acceptance and qualification procedure.
