How Design and Build Works

First step: Initial visit

The first thing we have to do before we can quote you for renovation, house extension, or a loft conversion is visit your property. We can tell you whether or not your property is suitable for the design-build construction you want to have done, identifying the potentials that you may need to be made aware of.

For example, is your loft suitable for conversion, and is the wall you want to remove a loading-bearing wall? Or Maybe you have a party wall, and you need help and advice about notifications and permissions.

We’ll answer all your questions and go through your ideas. Then we’ll draw up Road map and rough quote.

Second step: Architectural Plans Drawing Stage

If you’re having a house extension built or a loft conversion, you’ll need an architect to draw up your plans. As we are construction Company leading by architects We do this in-house to save you the worry of having to find an architect yourself.

An architect helps you with the design, planning and overseeing of your project.

Our architect knows how to make the most of the light and space in your home and can guide you through the drawing stage and seamlessly into the design and build.

You can use your architect to get ideas that reflect what you want out of your design and build project. They will also help you to avoid any costly mistakes during the design phase.

Third step: second visit, Drawing Explanation and Time to think

Once the drawings are in place you have a chance to look at everything again and make any changes if you want to. The best time to make changes is now because once the building work starts modifications can become expensive.

Your design and build architect will inquire about how you intend to utilize your space and your lifestyle preferences within your home. The more detailed you can be about your vision, the better, as the architect needs to translate your mental image onto paper.

Fourth Step: Applying for Planning Permission

Design and Build London

If your project requires planning permission this is the time, we apply for it on your behalf. This involves:

  • Filling in the appropriate application forms
  • Attaching additional information such as drawings and plans
  • Outlining what’s involved so that planning officers have a clear idea about the project

The planning department will then assess your application and make their decision. The process takes around 8 weeks from start to finish.

Fifth step: Structural Calculation

Now it is time to carry out the structural calculations and again we provide you with our in-house dedicated structural surveyor.

A structural engineer carries out structural calculations. They are specialist in building structures, and they work alongside architects.

Their job is to ensure that building work adheres to regulations and standards to guarantee the structure’s safety. All buildings must withstand specific changes, confirming that alterations are accommodated in the structure. This expertise is crucial in the design and decoration building process to maintain aesthetic appeal and structural integrity.

The structural engineer will go through the plans. They will make for example that after the removal of a load-bearing wall that the correct support is in place. They might also suggest materials for the build.
