Considering the possibilities and options related to building or extending a property can be mind-boggling.
Arriving at a basic design concept, getting to grips with planning permission and building regulations, managing the project and understanding costs are just some of the many areas to think about.
Our popular Kickstart Consultation has been designed specifically to give you the guidance, information, reassurance, ideas and inspiration you need to validate your plans.
Via an exciting live design session at the property you are looking to develop, the Kickstart Consultation answers four important questions about your potential project.
- What is possible?
- How much is it likely to cost?
- How long will it take?
- Who will do the work?
The Kickstart Consultation will give you an opportunity to share your ideas. We will discuss design ideas and help you clarify the possibilities and challenges related to things like space, topography, planning and budget. We’ll explain planning permission and building regulations related to your specific project and you'll get a feel for the price of your project and how long it may take.
The Kickstart Consultation deliverables include:
- Hand drawn sketches of the scheme
- A bar chart setting out lead times and project length
- A spreadsheet with indicative costs
- Information about the planning process
