01.Cuddington House Extension

Large single storey rear extension to a Victorian semi-detached house. The extension was designed to provide additional ground floor space that opened up to the garden – but a key requirement was to keep the extension hidden on the principal elevation and not to change the character of the original dwelling.

what needs to be done before the builders can start

Once you have booked in the survey, I would visit the house and spend approx. 1 hour taking measurements and photos of the existing house. I will need access to all rooms and the garden. I will then use this information to draw the existing plans and 3d model

Design drawings and 3d views are created of the proposed extensions. Often more than one option is produced for your consideration.

Once the client is happy with the design proposal, the drawings are then finalised and submitted to the council for planning approval or if the work can be carried out using permitted development rights, then the drawings are submitted to the council for a Lawful Development Certificate (LDC).

Following planning approval from the council, more detailed drawings are produced that will be used by the builder to construct the extension. A structural engineer may also be required at this stage to provide structural calculations for steel beams etc. This information is then submitted to the council for checking and approval.

Once planning approval and building regulations approval have been granted, your builder can then start work
