Normally we will arrange a meeting with a client for a consultation to discuss your requirements and advise whether we think it is feasible. We can also advise at this stage about the likely costs, including professional fees, building costs and other charges, fees and costs to local authorities.
Whether the works can be done under Permitted Development or have required Planning Permission the works require Building Control Approval. This is to ensure they comply with the Building Regulations for structural stability, safety, insulation etc. The next stage is therefore to prepare detailed drawing and notes for the Building Control Inspector to examine and approve – usually these will usually also enable your builder to work up a detailed price for the actual building work.
