About S. A. Design and Planning Services

S. A. Design and Planning Services is presented by, myself (Simon Ahern) and I currently work full-time as Computer Aided Design technician for an agricultural design and build company. I have been working in this area of expertise since December 2016, with previous industry experience as a Carpenter and Joiner. With this progression into design I have undertaken an industry standard BTEC Level 3 course in Construction and the Built Environment which covers all areas of the industry at a technical and management level. The course has been completed with the highest grades possible: 'Double Star Distinctions'. Following on from this, I am now undertaking a university level HNC course, which is at an even higher level of academic education enabling my understanding of the construction design process to be developed further.

My design process can be tailored to your individual needs, but typically will start with an design consultation where concepts and ideas can be explored, followed by an existing site measured survey. On return to the design office floor plans can be drafted, often with various options for you to choose from. Once an approved layout has been chosen the elevations can then be drafted, with once again possible options for you to approve. As you can see, I strive to consult with my clients at every stage and offer more than one solution to your requirements where possible, with the overall aim being to achieve 100% satisfaction.

Most clients require my services for their Planning Application drawings, in which I have a good understanding of what is required and I can even act as your planning application agent. For my planning application services I can offer clients' a fixed price agreement with payments only required once certain design stages have been reached.

Following on from my planning application services I can provide the following Computer Aided Design services:

3D Visuals
Concept Designs
Building Regulation Drawings
New Build Construction Design
Extension Design
Re-modelling Layouts
As-Built Construction Drawings
Technical drawings for manufacturing

Potential clients who like what they see from my profile are asked to 'Shortlist' or 'Invite to Quote', so that I may contact you to discuss your project further.
