Depending on complexity, Stage 2 is all to do with translating and refining your proposed scheme into detailed technical design and specification. This enables contractors to Tender and crucially, use on site to realise the design. It should be noted that we can combine building regulations into the first stage if required.
Fee proposal for the next stages
Once we have positive feedback from the local authority we will prepare our proposal for your approval, along with quotes for structural engineering and building control.
Once approval has been granted we will schedule another site visit with you at the property to discuss the specification with you in more detail. We would often invite the structural engineer to attend this meeting to discuss any considerations for the structural design.
Building regulation application
This is the technical under bonnet bit, translating the design into the detailed drawings and specification for building control approval.
We are quite particular about how we like certain aesthetic details to look, so to ensure the house is built to look like the visual you fell in love with construction details are an important feature of our technical service.
These are very important and a lot of people get left out in the cold when it comes to choosing materials, textures and colour schemes, not to mention finding the right suppliers. We hold lots of samples so you can see the products suitable for your scheme. We then compile this information into product sheets so you builder knows what to order and where to source what you need.
Detailing items such as plug sockets, light switches, under floor heating etc. so your builder can price for these correctly and decisions are not left to the last minute on site.
