Home Extension Planning and Design Service

For larger renovation or home extension projects you may find it beneficial to use our planning and design service. The design management service will help you explore all the options suitable for your home and your budget. Project manager, Ian Draper, will liaise with you to understand your requirements for your home. He can then contact a ‘tried and tested’ reputable architect and structural engineer and be the liaison between all the parties involved.

An experienced project manager is invaluable because he will understand all the roles of those involved, talk their language and the end result will be a finished design that will not only look good but will also be practical and structurally sound.

At this stage of your project knowledge of planning law and building regulations is also essential to prevent problems with obtaining planning permission and future problems with building regulation officials.

Good planning and design is far more likely to get planning permission (when required) and will consider the most cost effective construction methods and materials. Good planning at the outset can significantly cut the overall cost.

Fixed Fee Design and Planning

This service is available to anyone at a fixed fee of £450* but this will be waived if Oakridge Projects is instructed to compete the project and build your dream home.

*This fee is for Oakridge Projects services. Other professional service fees such as architects or structural engineers, plus planning and building control application fees are an additional cost.
