Looking to build an extension and garage - Architectural Services job in Manchester, Lancashire
2Looking to build an Extension and Garage
Currently have a small conservatory to the rear of the house and a driveway to the side. I would like to build a garage and a half (for a car and for some storage) on the driveway. I would also like to knock down the conservatory and build a larger conservatory or extension to the rear that wraps round the side of the house. I have not submitted drawings for planning.
- Feedback left for Bricks and Pieces
I was looking for architects but found in Bricks and Pieces a great deal more. 1st mtg at the house, Paul (owner) offered 3 services 1)Get Planning Permission 2)Building Regs & 3) Secure Building Contract.
At the time of writing I am at Step 3 having taken up on all 3 services.
Step 1 was done brilliantly. After discussing what I wanted, the drawings were produced promptly. Although I would have been pleased with that, the next stage is where Paul's experience really comes into its own. Having provided me with the drawings, Paul invited me to the office and offered alternatives to my original idea, getting the drawings done "live" whilst I was there and showing on 3D models and drawings 4-5 different options in the space of an hour in which I was there.
I was extremely satisfied with not only the quality of the drawings and service provided but also the value added that comes with it. Step 2 was really just to get the drawings to the Building Reg standards and the drawings were sufficiently detailed of good quality.
Bricks and Pieces are clearly very busy. Hence, Response times and Reminders on info are one area that could be improved especially if they get busier.
On the whole, I would recommend them to anyone who is embarking on a major housing project and have actually recommended them to a good friend. The experience and comfort factor of having someone "on my side" when taking on the rather unchartered territory of Builders have really helped put my mind at ease.
