Design and Planning – Architectural Services


At the initial visit or telephone consultation we will discuss your requirements and the feasibility of your proposal.  Our written quotation will follow which will provide a breakdown of costs for the following services:

  • Measurement Survey, Architectural Design and Plans
  • Submission of appropriate application to Local Planning Authority
  • An indication of costs for Building Regulations

A measurement survey of your existing property will be undertaken, this can take up to a couple of hours depending on the size and complexity of your home.  At this time we will speak to you in depth about your design ideas and what you would like to achieve from your extension/improvements.  Once you are fully happy with the design, IHD will submit the appropriate application to your Local Planning Authority on your behalf.  IHD will liaise with your Local Authority during the planning process and keep you fully informed of your application progress at all times.

IHD are also able undertake any statements or reports requested by your Local Planning Authority as part of your planning permission application.  These may include:

  • Design and Access Statements
  • Flood Risk Assessments
  • Tree Preservation Statements
