Our approach to planning 

With over 18 years of experience, we have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the planning framework and provide clients with the appropriate planning advice, including any local restrictions that may exist within Council planning policy.  Most of our projects are within the Boroughs of Bromley and Sevenoaks where we have a strong relationship with the Planning Departments. 

Upon receiving your enquiry, we gather information about the site and your requirements. We carry out an initial assessment of the project by reviewing planning history, aerial photographs and digital mapping systems to provide your with an initial project overview via email will will also provide outline fees. Based on the information provided and you wish to proceed further, we will schedule an initial  site meeting to come to site and discuss the project in more depth, answer any questions you may have and provide initial design and layout advice. Following this meeting, we issue a formal fee proposal based on the agreed scope of works with our T&Cs.  

Upon receipt of our signed T&Cs, we will arrange a measured site survey of your property. This information enables us to prepare drawings for the existing and proposed scheme.  These drawings form the starting point for further discussions at a Client Design Meeting at our offices  where we can discuss the initial designs and answer any questions you may have.  This allows us to develop the design further and prepare planning drawings for your approval, in readiness of a formal application into the Council

Building Regulations

Our approach to Building Regulations

The Building Regulations 2023 are a set of comprehensive technical publications covering every aspect of construction, from fire safety to thermal efficiency, structural integrity to drainage, ventilation, and safety. It is imperative that all building works adhere to these regulations without exception. 

Our construction drawings are compliant with the current Building Regulations and our Independent Building Control Inspector will undertake a Plans Check of our construction drawings alongside the structural specification.  They will also carry out site visits at various key stages throughout the build to ensure works comply with the approved design. Upon the completion of the build, they will issue you with a Final Certificate.  

Building work should not commence on site until a set of approved construction drawings have been formally issued.
