The 3D image indicates the timber framed element of a four storey development of Town Houses. The lower ground floor is of traditional construction and separated from the above by a concrete floor to which the timber frame is anchored. Specialist software used for this type of construction is capable of producing panel layouts and elevations and complete cutting lists.
Do you need planning or listed building consent? Is your building in a conservation area?
RB Designs Ltd can advise you as to whether planning consent is required and act as your agents in that process.
N.B. You should allow ample time for the planning process i.e. at least eight weeks from the date the application is registered with your local authority.
The Building Regulations process can be complicated if you’ve not dealt with it before and RB Designs Ltd’s architectural technician experts can handle this for you. Building Regulations approval is also required for any structural alteration or extension/new build. The Building Regulations process is to ensure that the proposal is built to certain stipulated standards and are safe. The application may be approached in different ways. Simple works could be undertaken under a Building Notice which requires that you give 48 hours notice of the intended start whilst larger projects require a Full Plans application that could take five weeks or longer to be approved. RB Designs Ltd can guide you through this process and act as your agents dealing with the application and all correspondence with the Local Authority or approved inspector. In order to protect your financial interests RB Designs Ltd would normally advise that you do not proceed with Building Regulations application until planning is secured.

This shows the rear of a property prior to work commencing on a two storey extension. Although a detached property, it is situated close to adjoining properties and therefore important from a planning view point to lessen the impact on the adjoining properties.
This shows the property upon completion of the extension. The maximum potential was achieved enabling the creation of a greatly enlarged kitchen, utility room and dining/garden room on the ground floor, and an enlarged family bathroom, enlarged master bedroom and an en-suite on the first floor.
