I contacted a few companies to request technical drawings to support my planning application for installation of a window or sun tunnel within my windowless stairwell. I was repeatedly knocked back due to the fact that this was considered a 'job too small'. Thankfully, Andrew May at Room-by-Room responded to my plea for assistance. Andrew promptly came to talk about both options and advised me on how to navigate the correct procedure to gain planning consent at my lease hold residence. Andrew provided the specific drawings required, liaised with the planning office on my behalf and also recommended a reputable local roofing firm to complete the job. Steady progress was made through to consent for the installation and Andrew communicated with me well throughout the process. The resulting sun tunnel surpasses all of my expectations! I'm so pleased to have received Andrew's service, without which, I'd probably still be standing at the first hurdle! More...

Q&As

These are the points that we look for when considering a loft conversion;
What is the customers budget and expectaions?
Is the internal existing height of the loft less than 2400mm?
If height is less than 2400mm can the floor be lowered and if so by how much height can be gained?
Are there any planning restrictions on the property. Is the house in a conservation area?
Does the roof have a gable or hip?
What is the pitch of the roof?
Can the stairs up to the loft be fitted in a sensible position?
What type of foundations on the property? If piled foundations then loft conversion is unlikely as the piles may fail.

Measured and photographic survey
Check foundations of the existing property are sufficient to support the additional weight of a loft conversion
Check existing lintels over doors, windows and any structural openings especially knock throughs are adiquate
Party wall agreements with adjoining neighbours
Build over agreement if an adopted sewer is within 3M of the property
Planning permission - Certificate of lawfulness or a full planning application
Building regulations architectural and structural design drawings and calculations
Produce lighting, heating , switches and sockets layout drawings for the quote
Confirm the fixed price quote based on approved drawings and the specification
Confirm the date to start for the building work,
Provide a schedule of works and a payment schedule
Building works commence

I love the challenge that each project provides as no two projects are the same

I wanted a more diverse working life which I was not receiving by working for other companies

We are very good at what we do just ask our previous customers!

Services

All of the planning regulations across the country are broadly similar. Local authorities have there own specific planning documents which set out that councils policy for housing, extensions and conversions as well as other aspects of planning.
Our experience and knowledge of planning has been gained over 30 years working within London, Herts, Essex, Beds and Bucks.

Landscape architecture is a service that we provided to our clients as a complete package of design and implementation only.
In recent years we have received more commissions for individually designed cedar clad garden cabins for gyms and offices as well as outdoor kitchens and play areas.
This service begins with a design concept which develops into a detailed drawings incorporating hard and soft landscaping, structures, cabins and ponds etc.

If you need drawings for an extension, conversion or new build you are looking in the right place.
After surveying your existing property we usually require five working days to produce existing and proposed plan and elevation drawings for submission to the local authority planning department for approval. We can act as your agent during this process, completing and submitting the correct forms and drawings or provide the drawings in order for you to complete the administrative part yourself.

Building regulations drawings are required by Building Control to show how the proposed structure is to be constructed. The approved planning drawings form part of this work together with the section drawings showing how the proposed structure is to be built and how it complies with the Building Regulations and British Standards. The submission of this application will also include structural design and calculations.
