Sketch Schemes & Feasibility Studies
Whether you are thinking about extending your existing home, constructing a large commercial unit, or developing a Brownfield site for housing it is often more time effective to pursue a number of ideas prior to a planning application being submitted.
I can provide alternatives to your ideas as well as sketching and developing your own visual concepts for your proposed project.
I can also assist in helping you with pricing a scheme as to see how feasible it is on your behalf.

After I have successfully overseen your project gain planning permission, the next stage is to gain building regulation approval in order for you to pass the building control regulations.

Local planning authorities are increasingly requesting visuals to access how new developments sit with in there locality. I have successfully produced a number of visuals to satisfy local authorities concerns on large projects, from illustrating large planting and screening of a number of environmentally sensitive cases to liaising with urban design officers & local communities to provide them with a realistic impression of a large housing development.
