A Personalised Building Service
Embarking on a construction project of any scale can be daunting; however, with a detailed building design, the process can be simplified.
At Amico Design Architecture, we provide a bespoke architectural service, including not only floor plans and 3D images but also photo-realistic images and walkthrough videos. This is perfect for visualising your project before construction begins, allowing you to determine its feasibility, total cost, required planning permissions and more.
How Does Our Architectural Service Work?
Having built a high reputation for our hassle-free architectural service, we ensure that you receive comprehensive support every step of the way.
The process begins with a desktop study to understand how we can best fulfil your design brief, including researching planning authority policies and looking at street view images of the site.
Once we have determined precisely what you are looking for and your project requirements, you will be provided with a detailed written quotation of our design fees, ready for your approval to proceed.
2D & 3D Drawings
Drawings will start as a sketch before being transformed into 2D drawings and 3D visualisations, allowing you to envision what the project will look like post-construction and make any amendments.
Expert Support With Planning Applications
Once you are happy with your drawings, the next step is to identify the type of planning application best suited to your project. From here, we can help you to prepare the relevant documentation ready for submission. This typically includes:
- Design and access statements
- Existing drawings
- Proposed drawings
- Planning application forms
Planning approval can take 10-12 weeks, depending on the type of project and the local planning authority.
Guiding You Through The Building Control Process
While planning applications are being determined, we will begin preparing a package of information which will need to be submitted to building control for approval. In doing this during the determination period, once planning approval is granted, you will be ready to begin the build. Building control approval usually takes around two weeks, but this can vary depending on the size and scale of the project.
We Create Tender Packages On Your Behalf
Our tender packages include a set of drawings where materials, dimensions and specifications are detailed so that an accurate build cost can be provided. At this stage, we will fine-tune details and can enlist the services of external consultants, including:
- Structural engineers
- Mechanical consultants
- Party wall surveyors
- Electrical contractors
