It may be worth using an architect or a chartered architectural technologist to prepare detailed drawings which may be required to obtain planning permission and for Building Regulations approval. Clear and detailed plans will definitely smooth the project’s path through the planning process. A good architect can also prepare the correct documentation to enable building contractors to provide detailed quotes for the project.

Designers or architects can also act as project managers, supervising the build from start to finish.

While these services come at a price, they are worth considering if you will not be around to manage the building work or don’t want the hassle of doing so.

If you are interested in consulting with a Chartered Architectural Technologist, we recommend Philip Thompson Associates in Wetherby who are a user friendly Architectural practice and carry out the design services at reasonable rates.
