Conception to Planning Permission
Once we have agreed the extent of the project and the client is happy with everything, then the measured survey is carried out. Full measurements of the property and land surrounding the house, internal dimensions, heights and levels, services where appropriate and fully photographic survey.
Existing Drawings and Sketch Options
Existing Site Location Plan, Block Plan, Floor Plans and Elevations
Proposed Options. I draw the clients design idea, variations on the design idea - playing with the room division, the layout and the extent of the work and I draw any other new ideas that I come up with.
I believe it is best to consider all the options at an early stage. Even if the options are disregarded, it is best to explore everything.
Once I have had feedback from the client on the options, i will combine / mix and match the best elements of each of the options.
If required, i will do variations on the favoured option.
