Ask an Architect
If you are in the UK and thinking of building a house extension or maybe buying a property that needs to be altered, or even looking at plots of land to build your dream home, I can help.
I have been altering and extending private homes since 2009. I frequently deal with complex projects on challenging sites and many of my client's properties are listed buildings or are located in conservation areas.
The purpose of the consultation is to establish whether the project is feasible and affordable within your budget.
Identify alternative ideas that might achieve a better result for you.
Refine your ideas and requirements, to make the best use of your property and budget.
Advise on pitfalls to avoid during the planning application process.
Identify requirements of the building regulations relevant to your project.
Help you understand how to find the right local architect for your project.
I offer the consultation services listed here. These are all done online, via a zoom call. Once the consultation is booked I will ask you to email me with specific information about the property. I will need photos, the full postal address and as much information as you can give me on your requirements, including your budget and timescales.
Please note the consultation service is only available if your property is in the UK and on the condition you have not already employed an Architect. It is vital that you read the Terms and Conditions BEFORE booking an appointment.
Please be aware I will not provide design services, drawings or specifications as part of the consultation.
