FREE Initial Consultation

Maybe you are planning to build your new home, extend your existing home or redevelop your business premises. Whatever your architectural needs our professional services will ensure you receive the best value for money without compromising on quality.

Through initial consultation we will develop your ideas and combine our architectural expertise to produce a feasible design. Using our experience we ensure that designs meet with your requirements and we endeavour to inspire you to realise the full potential of your building project.


We undertake a detailed survey of your property. This information is then used to produce existing and proposed plans and elevations drawn to a recognised scale and format that is suitable for submitting to the local authority.

Our design services are tailored to suit each individual’s personal and project requirements. During the design process we strive to constantly involve the client through discussion and draft proposals to ensure the client is satisfied with the completed design prior to any formal submissions to the Planning Department.

We are able to provide 3D Visualisation facilities to produce photorealistic models of the proposals.

Most new building projects and alterations will require planning advice. Our almost 20 years experience in this field enables us to give advice on planning issues prior to incurring the expense of submitting a planning application to the local authority. Once an application has been submitted to the local authority we provide updates as required through the planning process.


The Building Regulations Application can be submitted in conjunction with or after the planning application. Once a planning application has been submitted we will be in a position to prepare the detailed construction drawings which are required to accompany the Building Regulations Application.

The way in which we design buildings and the required methods of construction are continually changing. It is essential that we keep up with current regulations. We offer a full service from the economical specification of the building and submission of Building Regulations Application, together with consultations with building control through to approval.
