About Cranleigh Planning and Architecture
I am a sole trader, my overheads are low and I do not charge VAT. Hence very competitive. My method of charging is fully transparent.
I am proud to have a drawing board, engineering / architectural background of over 45 years.
I provide A1 (84cm x 60cm) size drawings showing all existing and proposed elevations on large drawings to scale 1:50. This enables an appreciation of the whole scope and a realistic appreciation of the project. This is more than CAD, with all elevations lining through and viewed together on a large drawing. Drawings are electronically scanned for speed of communication.
I am delighted to have obtained planning permission for many satisfied customers over the years, including successful applications for new builds in gardens at Shamley Green (Waverley BC) and Puttenham (Guildford BC),. This success is achieved by the right approach and Pre-application procedures with planning departments, combined with passion and perseverance.
I also provide Full Plans Building Regulation drawings and applications.
I work in close conjunction with a Structural Engineer recognised by many Building Control Departments in the South East.
I also work in conjunction with an approved Heat Loss Specialist for SAP calculations when necessary.
My success is driven by enthusiastically working with clients in a team spirited manner and getting Planning Departments on the team's side from the very start of a project by involving Planning through the Pre-application process where necessary.
I have contacts with reputable, reliable builders, SIPs timber frame suppliers and trades, who have proved their success in building my client's projects.
I offer a free initial meeting to discuss the project and give a guide budget price for fees and build costs.
Full Plans Building Regulation drawings are prepared, together with a Schedule of Works for builder's quotation purposes. This procedure in requesting quotations is necessary to bring in closer prices, on a like for like basis.
