In order for us to begin our design work we will need to conduct a detailed measured survey of your property and the land where the proposed building will be.
For existing dwellings undertaking refurbishment or extension works the survey would be done at your convenience and gives us a thorough understanding of your existing property including: its size, shape, and orientation, the materials used in its construction and the proximity of any trees and neighbouring buildings. We would also use this opportunity to photograph your property, both inside and out, to aid us in developing your ideas while away from site.
We then draw up an an accurate AutoCAD drawing of the building in plan, elevation and section, picking up any important services that may have an impact on the proposal. A full copy of these will be sent to you for your records upon completion. When this important stage of the work is complete we will have all the information we need to begin exploring the potential design proposal.
