Quality loft conversions in Lytham
At Homeplan Designs, we specialise in constructing building plans for property extensions, loft conversions, garden rooms and new builds. We then consult with the local council and apply for planning permission (if required) on your behalf. Within our architectural services, we also supply building regulations and offer structural engineer and SAP calculations if needed. That said, we provide you with everything to take your project to the build stage. Speak to us today to discuss how we can best serve you.
Planning application for new builds
At Homeplan Designs, we manage the whole process of planning your building project to help you deal with the local authorities and your builders. From initial concept, feasibility study and architectural services, through to approval for planning permission and building regulations, we do it all.
Our professionals will advise you on all planning issues and help you decide on which route to take; permitted development or full planning application. As experts in permitted development, we can also advise you if your project may fall within the government guidelines.
We can provide you with a fast and reliable service using the latest technology in 3D visualisation to speed up a process which has traditionally been quite slow.
Meeting building regulations
An important part of the requirement to build is to have building specifications for your builder to follow as a guideline; thereby complying with the building regulations.
Even if a project doesn’t need planning permission, (i.e. permitted development), it will need to be approved under the building regulations which is statutory requirement by law. We are well-versed with the building regulations to ensure that the new building is watertight and insulated to be meet thermal requirements. It should also be structurally sound.
We carry out cost-saving specifications that will help you save money on the build cost, which can offer a reduction in the contract times and reduce the environmental impact.
If you would like to know more about the planning process, please go to our resources page and download our documents ‘Dealing with a planning application’. It explains permitted development in detail and the various planning procedures.
My husband and I have used Chris Sinkinson for our own property which was a complete refurbishment of a two bedroomed bungalow incorporating a roof lift and extension.
His plans were detailed and yet easy to work to, and because of this, we have recommended him to others.
We would not hesitate to commend his work as not only is he professional but friendly, helpful and fast.
