design and build from Drummond ConstructionThe first stage of any design and build project is to ensure that all planning requirements are satisified. Our architects will draw up the initial concept plans to show exactly what you propose to do with your property. After completing the concept drawings we will discuss the proposals with the local planning authority to determine what planning appovals will be required and then make the planning application for you (if your particular project requires Planning Permission).

The second stage of a design and build project is to obtain Building Control Approval. This is a separate process from Planning Permission and is needed to make sure that your building satisfies Building Regulations. Further detailed plans and specifications need to be drawn up showing all of the technical and construction details of your project. We will use the Building Regulations drawings on site during the construction stage.

The build stage of any project will only run efficiently if the builder has a good set of plans, therefore, we refer our clients to professional architects who we know and trust. Good architects will have the following qualities.

  • The ability to deliver creative designs whilst achieving what the client desires
  • The ability to draw up the plans according to the client’s budget, (so as not to cause the client any unnecessary expense)
  • The ability to successfully navigate through local authorities’ rules and regulations
