What do you need to know about permitted development design/advice?

A company that houses architects and structural engineers are the kind of companies you want to be approaching for design or advice regarding a permitted development. An architect can draft up the design according to your vision and advise you, according to your budget, on what would work best within the space. A structural engineer’s role is to protect the public’s safety and to assess whether the building’s structure can withstand the design changes in its environment. An established firm should also be able to show you examples of projects it has worked on in the past. 

Remember that larger companies often have higher overheads and will charge more as a result. Qualifications and experience matter more than the size of the business, so do not be put off from looking at freelancers and smaller businesses. Architects and structural engineers are specialists and need degrees to practice. If you are unsure of what to look for, you can find this information on the National Careers Service website. It is a good sign of your specialist belongs to a national tradesman organisation, such as the Institute of Structural Engineers. Groups like these have extremely high standards for entry, and members are regulated. You also want to ensure that you choose a professional that is covered by Public Liability Insurance. This will cover you if poor work on their part costs you down the line.

Thank you for the double storey side extension drawings. I was pleased to find out that Extension Architecture has really good knowledge on conservation areas, and listed buildings. I was told by two local architecture that it was difficult to gain the side extension as the local conservation area guidelines, but with the advise of EA,we regained our lost confidence, and have managed to follow through and now the permission has been received, in my hands! Many thanks for all your efforts and I was extremely happy with the result. Expect a call from my neighbour Maggie, on their extension

We engaged Eli to provide drawings for our 2 story side extension on a 1930s end of terrace in a very small conservation area. From the first phone call, Eli was professional throughout and provided the right level of detail to us to get the project moving. Through various delays (no fault of 4Ds), Eli was extremely patient and professional. I would highly recommend using 4D for any sort of planning applications that carry uncertainty or some level of risk, as Eli was able to formulate the right strategy for us and execute this - above and beyond just delivering good quality drawings and service.

I was recommend David Fletcher by my daughter who had a specific architect project over seen by David Fletcher. I found David to be very professional with integrity and would not hesitant to highly recommend his work and service. I would confidently use David for any future work we have in mind.

Excellent communications, friendly, competitive price. He came over and did the preliminary report- knows his stuff. We didn't end up progressing with any further work... but would not hesitate to use him in the future if we needed to. recommended+++
