Depending on the nature of the project, you may wish to explore the design ideas conceptually before committing yourselves any further.
Openplan Architectural Design can present you with a number of sketch design proposals based on the site-specific conditions and your preliminary design brief. These proposals will illustrate the size and form of your development along with the position of principle rooms and the way in which you might optimise the available light and space. Depending on your project it usually takes between 2-3 meetings to finalise a design.
Once you are happy with your design and wish to proceed, Openplan Architectural Design utilise these sketch proposals as part of any pre-application enquiry with the Local Planning Authority to gain feedback on your proposals and incorporate any recommendations and/or observations before preparing a formal planning submission.
