Knowing how to turn your extension ideas in to reality can be daunting. The process can be divided into three stages. First, Planning, followed by Building Control and finally Project Management.

Planning

The planning process is complicated and can be one of the more difficult aspects of any project. Our practice is experienced in all aspects of planning and has an extensive knowledge of planning legislation, policies and procedures. As a local practice we deal extensively with Chiltern District Council and South Bucks District Council.

Our services include:

- Feasibility appraisals
- Planning drawings
- Planning Application submission to Local Council

Building Control

Our practice prepares full detailed CAD (Computer Aided Design) construction plans and specifications for Building Control approval and submits Building Control applications to the Local Authority. This phase is basically a set of plans to show how your approved Planning designs are actually going to be built in accordance with the latest Building Regulations.
