Kitchen extension - Architecture job in Pontypool, Gwent

Job description

I have an end terraced house purchased at auction in Sebastopol. It has a kitchen 2.5 x2.35 metres and an attached brick porch 1.7 x 1.4 metres which is single brick. I want to extend/ demolish the porch and make a larger kitchen 4 x 3.5 metres. Complexities are 1) there is a main sewer running under the house front to back that probably runs under the kitchen or close to it. I currently have welsh water investigating the exact course of the drain but I assume I am ok to build over it. 2) there is a drop of approx a metre to the rear ground level. I am also considering the feasibility / cost effectiveness of an extension right across the rear. I assume that, unless the main drain is an issue, that I have permitted development rights. Please let me know if you can quote. Thanks

Feedback for Creation Design (Wales) Architectural Services

I used Creation Design in early 2018 for some extension plans in Sebastopol, Torfaen.
The quality of the plans was very good and I received help from Paul in talking with potential builders about implementation. However, the process took considerably longer than I expected and was advised. Instead of 2-3 weeks it took 2-3 months. The involvement of a structural engineer added delays and I had to deal with her directly more than I would have liked. All in all I would use Creation Design again but would seek timescales in writing.
