Before we can begin working on proposals, we need accurate, measured drawings. As such, one of the first things we do is measure up your whole property and prepare existing drawings. These will be prepared in digital format (AutoCAD or Revit), suitable for use by other professionals. We still use tape measures for the odd tricky situation, but the bulk of survey measurement is done by laser for improved speed and accuracy.
Probably the best part of our job is working with our clients to design their projects. We listen carefully to get our client's brief, allowing us to respond with creative output. We produce hand drawn sketch schemes and/or computer generated sketch schemes using state of the art industry software such as Sketch-Up, AutoCAD and Revit. As part of our service, we can meet with you either at your place of work, home, or in our purpose built conference room at our offices. The best result is a strong response - love it or hate it, if you have a strong feeling towards our proposals, it gives us a great position to shape the scheme into a building and environment that you need. We strive for emotive design to shape great spaces.
We can consult with the planning department in your local authority on your proposed development. Whilst charging for pre-application advise is common practice for many authorities in England, thankfully this is not the case for most local authorities in Wales. Consequently, a Pre-Application enquiry is often recommended to help smooth the planning process as the planner will often discuss relevant policies that effect the area and share their opinion on the scheme 'without prejudice'. They will also typically let you know if any supplementary information is required such as Bat Reports, Topographical Surveys and Flood Consequences Assessments, all of which can be procured through Darkin Architects.
Do you need planning consent? Which type of planning application do you complete? Darkin Architects have an established history of planning applications and can prepare and submit your application for applications such as: Householder planning consent Full planning consent Outline planning consent Conservation area consent Reserved Matters Listed building consent Advertisement consent Lawful Development Certificate (LDC) Prior notification Removal/variation of conditions Approval of conditions Consent under Tree Preservation Orders Notification of proposed works to trees in conservation areas We submit all of our planning applications online using the Planning Portal. This facilitates easier communication between all parties, reduces paper usage and reduces cost to our clients.
What if you don't get the planning permission you want? Darkin Architects can prepare and submit your planning appeal.
A building regulations application will be required for most types of building work. Get in touch to find out where approval is required. Darkin Architects have a proven track record in Building Regulations Applications and Compliance and can help you make sure that your build complies with Building Regulations.
