Building an extension can be a big decision, which is why we aim to make the process as easy and stress free as possible. Once we have arranged our initial consultation, we will come and view the property to discuss what is the best course of action moving forward. We offer free, impartial advice as to what can be realistically achieved given the confines of current planning legislation, budgets and scope.

Planning Permission

Obtaining planning permission can be a tricky thing to navigate, so we offer free planning advice to those that are looking to extend their home with us. We can guide you through the process from start to finish, and take the stress out of dealing with the local authority yourself. We have a near 100% success rate with obtaining planning permission for our projects and aim to keep it that way. Some smaller extensions may not need planning permission and can be built under ‘permitted development rights’. You are not legally required to apply for permission in these instances, but we will always advise you apply for a certificate of lawful development which guarantees your extension has been designed to meet the current legislation.

Building Control

We work to make the initial stage of your extension as stress free as possible, so we will provide everything you need to make an application to the local authority for a building regs application. We will provide a full set of detailed architectural drawings and work with local engineers to provide reliable structural information to be assimilated into our design. We work with experienced local builders https://awaconstruction.co.uk to provide free quotations and expert advice for when your development is ready to begin construction.
