There are many stages to a great home transformation, starting with a site survey and precise architectural designs, then often party wall agreements with neighbours. This moves forward with all the drawings and elevations, PLANNING PERMISSION, where needed, and building control, structural engineering and the build itself.Planning Applications >>
Wherever your project is based in Plymouth, Devon, Cornwall or The South Hams, the planning application process can at first seem daunting. Whether it be for a New Build or alteration to an existing residential property. The drawings are an integral part of the application process in which certain, defined specifications and criteria must be met for your local planning authority to approve your Planning Application and grant PLANNING PERMISSION.
J&M Design & Architectural Services understand that a good design communication is key to a successful Planning Application, simple, precise and clear drawings help all involved understand what is being applied for. Ultimately, it is what makes the difference between an application being understood or misrepresented.Planning Permission >>
Once planning permission has been granted the proposed project will likely require building control approval under the Building Act, known as the Building Regulations. A building control application is therefore required to be submitted along with building control documents such as building egulations drawings and structural calculations. These documents demonstrate to building control that the proposed works meets the required building regulations relevant to the works to be undertaken.
In addition to obtaining planning permission for your project I can also ensure that your proposed building works meet all necessary building regulations to satisfy your local building control officer. This is achieved by adding sections, details and annotations to the approved planning drawings and submitting to either the local Building Control Department or Approved Inspector. Additional Specialists services may be required, eg Engineer, Energy Consultant, Sound Engineer etc, and I can liaise with these on your behalf.Building Regulations >>

Boundary surveys are most commonly used to determine the legal ownership of a specified plot of land and often form part of a legal document (Land Registry) or lease agreement.
My boundary surveys can be overlaid on Land Registry or historic maps in order to determine any discrepancies to help resolve any disputes or to record new titles with Land Registry/Councils. Boundary Surveys are produced from on site survey information using a mix of technology together with Ordnance Survey information. My survey data is integrated with the Ordnance Survey Map which allows you to relate your site to its surroundings making my boundary survey drawings Land Registry compliant.Boundary Surveys & Disputes >>
