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.
