© J & M Design
This is the first meet up to discuss your ideas and requirements with a view of turning them into a reality. The initial consultation is free and it allows me to collate the relevant information in order to provide a fee quote to take the project to planning application stage
If you are happy with me fee quote and wish to proceed then a survey is undertaken to enable survey drawings to be compiled. Information such as room sizes, window/door positions & heights, sections, boundaries, elevations will be measured using both laser and retractable tape. On occasion external levels will be taken using an automatic level.
The survey data will be converted into digital format drawings, usually made up of plans, elevations, section and site plan.
Based on the survey drawings, sketches will be produced around the design brief and forwarded on to you for your comments. Designs are firmed up at this stage.
The digital drawings are then progressed, showing the approved sketch designs, and planning drawings produced. Generally a full planning package will include survey & proposed plans, elevations and block plan together with location plan. A Design & Access statement is most times required and can help explain the principles behind the design.
We undertake the form filling, compiling and submitting of the application and liaise with the Planner in charge to monitor the process.
