Drawings & building warrant submission for tenement - CAD/Drawings job in Edinburgh, Midlothian

Job description

Drawings and the overseeing of their submission for a building warrant from Edinburgh City Council required for the creation of a box room in a traditional tenement flat. The box room will be created from the recess in the main living room and recess in the adjoining kitchen/diner. This will require the removal of the current wall which separates both rooms, and the construction of a timber frame wall either side of the recesses.

The wall currently dividing the living room and kitchen is not a load bearing wall.

The tenement flat is on the 2nd floor of a 3-storey block, other flats within the same block have already had the internal space converted into either a box room or into an internal kitchen.

I would be grateful if you could supply a quote for the supply of drawings and management of the building warrant process with the council along with an estimate for how long it would take to complete.

I would also like to receive quotes from recommended tradespeople to carry out the construction work.

Feedback for J C H Design

Professional, knowledgeable and exceptionally considerate, JCH Design oversaw the application for a building warrant for the removal of a load-bearing wall, and the addition of a new partition between the kitchen and lounge in a traditional tenement flat. All drawings and additional report and calculations from the structural engineer whom John liaised with, were submitted to Edinburgh City Council within the agreed timeframe, with John going out of his way to visit the property in Edinburgh twice to explain each element of the process in detail.

John was exceptionally considerate, responding to all queries, even outside of working hours, to accommodate my circumstances, as well as speaking to Building Standards on my behalf. Having never submitted an application for a building warrant before, John was very thorough in explaining the entire process from start to finish.

It was reassuring to be able to put my trust in John to secure the required building warrant. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending John’s services.
