Here at re:design Architectural Services London – we make the whole process of getting your new building project off the ground as easy as possible. This is why we are becoming the first choice residential and commercial architects in London that people turn to when they are considering any building project.
We manage the whole process of planning and then building your project for you, from initial house plans designs to architectural design, from dealing with planning authorities to gain planning permission, to ensuring all works meet building regulations.
If necessary, we our architectural design team can provide SAP calculations, and structural engineer reports to your local building control officer. Whether you are looking at building an extension, a loft conversion, a garden room or a new build, our team can draw up the architectural drawings and deal with all planning and regulation issues for you. As experts in permitted development we can advise you whether your planned project falls within the permitted development guidelines.
If planning permission is required, we will apply for this on your behalf and supply all architectural drafting and architectural renderings required. We can provide 106 agreements, SAP calculations, design and access statements, layouts, cross-sections and elevations, supported statements, heritage statements, flood risk assessments and site waste statements. In short, we make building projects as easy as they can be for you.
If you want to know more about the Planning process, please download our “Introduction to Planning: What you Need to Know” Guide below.
Finally, we are one of the few London architect to offer you an eco-friendly cost saving build specification. This not only saves build time and money, but also reduces the amount of building waste going to landfill.
One of our qualified architects will come to visit you at a time to suit you in your home, your office or the place where you intend to build. During this free consultation we will listen to your plans and advise you as to the feasibility of your idea. During this session we will also discuss whether your planned project could come under permitted development rights or whether planning permission will be needed.
In some cases, we might need to submit a pre-application report to your local authority to ascertain whether your project is likely to be given the go-ahead.
As soon as we have all the information we need, both from you and where necessary, from your local authority, we will send you our detailed quotation which will outline your design ideas and state what services we will provide.
After you have received our quotation, if you decide to use our services, we will send out a qualified surveyor. Our surveyor will measure and survey your property and produce our proposed design scheme, based on your ideas. We normally produce this scheme within 48 hours of the survey.
Once you are happy with the design, our team of architectural designers will draw up architectural drawings for you to approve, normally within 7 days of your go-ahead.
Once you have approved these plans, and remember, we can change them for you as many times as necessary until you are happy with them, we will then submit your plans, and any additional reports or statements as required, to your local planning authority. We will gie you a unique tracking number so that you can monitor the progress of your planning application through our computer system. This system can also send you emails, if you wish, to update you on the progress of your application. This is a lengthy process. Gaining planning permission can take up to eight weeks.
As soon as we have obtained planning permission for your project, we will then produce all necessary building regulations and submit these to your local building control officer.
