Once any required reports and surveys have been completed, we’ll begin to draft preliminary concept design proposals. These will include architectural drawings which detail floor plans, elevations and material ideas. Here at SPD Studio, we take great pride in our collaborative approach. This means that we work closely with our clients to maximise efficiency, deliver objectives and ensure that their vision comes to life. So, you can rest assured that our design team will liaise with you and discuss every aspect of the scheme. At this stage we’ll agree a route to Building Regulations compliance. In the final stage of our planning process, we’ll make any required amendments to the planning drawings and supporting documentation prepared in earlier stages. We’ll ensure that our drawings and Statements are finalised to suit statutory planning requirements and building regulations. We will respond to any local authority queries to ensure that the submission is valid and any queries that are raised during the determination period. If any 3D visual representations are required to complete the application, we can provide these too. These may only be required in certain circumstances, for example, if it’s a complex build. However, as well as assisting a planning application, these can be useful to help visualise how the project will look upon completion.
