Fairtech work for homeowners and small business owners, we offer extension and building plans in Cheshire and the North West.
We conduct a site survey for each project, no matter how minor to ensure that every detail is recorded and taken into account.
The plans for planning permission and building regulations are somewhat different, with the latter being more detailed and including a construction specification for your builder.
We act as your agent with the Local Authority which means that we deal with any queries and paperwork on your behalf. We have good working relationships with structural engineers and other professionals meaning that you have one less thing to worry about.
Our services aren't limited to just building plans. We also offer road and sewer design as well as topographical surveys and site engineering / setting out services for self builders and groundworks contractors.
Very quick to respond and easy to deal with.
Great job, very friendly, listen to exactly what we wanted.
Helpful and knowledgeable home visit and subsequent drawings. Willing to listen to our views and adapt to suit our aspirations.
I picked Fairtech from an Internet search for local architects. Matt responded very quickly to my email, we made arrangements to meet at my house where we discussed what I required. Within the agreed time scale Matt had drawn up the plans for my inspection and approval, once agreed, he then submitted them to Manchester City Council for approval. The council have now approved the plans, and I am delighted with Matt for the work/plans received and the speedy resolution that arose from them. More...
Not impressed. The plans have been rejected. If he had spent 2 minutes on the planning portal he would have known why. Nice pictures but no detailed plans. A lot of money wasted. More...
I arranged to conduct a measured survey at Mrs Cockerton's address the next day, despite having to re-schedule on-going work. At our meeting, the differences between permitted development and a householder planning application were discussed. Mrs Cockerton's desired kitchen extension (to match an existing rear extension) fell outside of the guidance given on the Planning Portal website as the rear projection would be greater than 3m. It was agreed that we would proceed with a householder planning application, and my planning drawing was approved for submission by Mrs Cockerton prior to me doing so. The desired rear projection was greater than that normally allowed by Wirral MBC, and an amendment to the proposal was requested by the planning officer (to reduce the rear projection by 263mm). It is not uncommon for amendments to be requested by the Local Planning Authority during a planning application. I have recently led an application nearby where we were successful in securing planning permission despite the proposed rear projection being 2m greater than would normally be allowed by the Local Planning Authority. It should be noted that this negative review was left during the planning process, when the building regulation drawings were still in production, and no contact was made directly to myself regarding any concerns. The building regulation drawings and specification have since been provided electronically to Mrs Cockerton in line with the timescales discussed at our meeting.
Matt was very helpful and provided the Drawing required in a very quick and efficient manner.
Thank you Leon. I trust that the elevation drawings satisfied the Local Planning Authority requirements.
He was very knowledgable, helpful and always available to discuss the project.
Thank you Mark, I hope that the refurbishment is going to plan.
Matt was very knowledgable, friendly and explained the process clearly. As first time home owners his advice was greatly appreciated. I would thoroughly recommend him.
Thank you Charlotte. I hope that your project went well.
Matt at Fairtech is very professional and we would definitely recommend his services as an architect. He has been really helpful and has gone out of his way to make sure that this stage of our building project has gone smoothly.
Thank you for your kind words Alan. Good luck with the build, and I hope to deal with you again in the future.
Matt did all I asked of him as quickly as was posible he was accessible via email and his drawings for the new extension where professional excellent service and would highly recommend
Clear and concise on what could be provided and what the price was. Whilst it was more than I expected, it was in line with other quotes. Drawing were highly professional and have been accepted by the planning department as sufficient. Result! More...
