Once sketch design proposals have been finalised, Openplan Architectural Design will begin looking at various aspects of your design in more detail: i.e. - which materials and finishes should be used, the size, location and proportion of doors and windows, the layout of rooms, the means of natural lighting as well as key construction details.
We can then prepare a complete set of planning drawings for your approval. Once you are happy with these drawings, we will prepare a detailed planning application submission on your behalf.
The Planning process is not without its difficulties and therefore it is advisable that Kerry County Council is consulted at an early stage to establish any perceived issues with the site or if certain design criteria will be imposed. Over the years we have developed good relationships with the Local Planning Authorities and we look to ascertain approval for the development and incorporate any recommendations and/or observations before we proceed to the preparation a detailed planning application submission
It is important, now more than ever, to ensure that the details of the design illustrated at planning stage can be realistically implemented once on site.
Over the years we have developed good relationships with the Local Planning Authorities and during the course of the application they may wish to discuss issues and make amendments to our proposal, at which point we will have further consultation with you
