Sketch Design

Working over the existing drawings, I generally produce between 2-5 varied options for clients to pick and choose which elements they like and want to take forward.

Design Development

Taking on all the client’s feedback on the sketch designs, I compile all the best bits into a new design revision. After a few rounds of changes, we usually arrive at a point where the design is perfect.

Formal Application

For most projects, a formal Planning Application is required. Taking the final design, I compile the drawing package, fill out online planning forms and manage the active application as the agent. I will liaise with the assigned Planning Officer where necessary.

Technical Drawing Package

Once Planning Permission has been granted, a new set of more detailed drawings need to be produced showing how the design will be built. These drawings need to comply with UK Building Regulations and sign off from Building Control is required before the build can start.

Managing The Tender Process

Selecting the right Contractor for your project is very important. I generally advise my clients to send a tender package to three Contractors, which includes the technical drawings, specification document and a pricing template. This allows for easy cross referencing once tenders are returned.

Project Management

I am available to attend regular site meetings with all professionals involved in order to cover how the build is progressing once the build starts on site.

“Rebecca made us think of new ideas and really thought about space and light which was so important for me - it wasn’t just a box on the back of the house.”

–  JO MOSLEY

“Rebecca took our chosen design and put this in for planning permission. We didn’t need to worry about anything in this process as it was totally managed and the next thing we knew we had planning consent!”

–  JO MOSLEY

“We love the extension! It’s totally changed the feel of the house and everyone who walks in says WOW!”
