Planning / Building Regulations

We know that whether a commercial property is rented or owned, over time it is likely to require modifying and we are here to help. We offer design packages which are individual to each client’s needs, suiting their requirements and budget.

During a renovation, our design team can also offer a project management service, meaning that we will oversee the development and ensure that the project runs on course and on budget.

Our team has vast knowledge on all types of refit projects and whether big or small, we will be with you throughout the duration of your scheme.

Building Regulations

Once the Local Authority has granted planning permission and you are in a position to prepare for the build, a set of building regulation drawings can be provided. The drawings will incorporate various elements such as thermal, acoustic, fire safety, health and safety, electric layout, drainage information, ventilation, structure and all other regularity requirements.
