Advice & Consultation

If you would like some clear, simple Architectural advice regarding your project we will happily visit your home and undertake a free Consultation.


During this meeting we can advise on the following:

  • Feasibility of your ideas
    Assess your initial objectives and advise if there are any issues, obstacles or implications
  • Explore alternative solutions
    Give opinions and insight as to what other design opportunities there may be and what advantages they could present
  • Planning opportunities and limitations
    Advise if Planning Permission is likely to be required and if planning Guidance is likely to be met. Explain other types of Planning Applications and their implications
  • Outline Construction budget costs
    Give an overview of what the total project costs could be to hopefully avoid you embarking on projects that are beyond financial reach or budget
  • Planning Approval Processes
    Give an overview of the Application process, timescales and fees
  • Building Regulations Processes
    Explain the plan check process, Site inspection regime, Certifications required and the Local Authority or Private Building Control options and implications
  • Timescales & costs
    Summarise design times and fee options and estimate potential build costs and construction timescales

Examples of recent similar projects will be shown and the Consultation will be followed up with a written Quotation and at this stage there is no cost to you and no obligations.

Once you have received your specific project quotation and have chosen to appoint us we will carry out a measured survey within a week of instruction.

How Much Will It Cost?

Each project is different and the cost relates specifically to its scale and complexity.

Our Quote will have no obligation and is provided before any service is undertaken. We will also be able to advise any additional costs and fees associated with obtaining your Approvals.

We will be able to advise:

  • The requirement for other Consultant’s advice and involvement
  • The cost of Planning and Building Regulations Application Fees
