Have a quick check to see if your query is answered below…
Do you do Structural Calculations?
At the Building Regulations Stage you may need structural calculations for steel beams or non-standard foundations.
We are not Structural Engineers but we work closely with an online engineering firm who work quickly and for a fair price. If you email a set of planning/building regulations drawings to email@example.com with the subject line 'ArkiPlan', he will reply with a quote and draft scheme.
Do you charge for drawing amendments?
We do not charge you for tweaking your drawings during the early stages or even if the Local Authority ask for minor amendments to the design. If you/the council requested a full redesign or a new council application, we would just quote you for the additional work.
What do you need from me to get started?
All we basically need from you is photographs of your house from all sides externally and existing floor plans showing all room sizes.
If you are sketching your house floor plan rather than submitting previous Architect's drawings or Estate Agents plans, please download our Sketch Sheet and Sketch Guidance Document
When do you take payments?
After you have uploaded your photographs and floor plans, we will take your £149 deposit. We will only ask for the outstanding balance when the drawings are finished and you are entirely happy with them.
Note - If you are having Planning and Building Regulations Drawings, your total outstanding balance (£1198-£149) will be divided into two staged payments - 1) 50% when your Planning Drawings are finished and 2) 50% when your Building Regulations Drawings are finished. This is normally after Planning/Lawful Development is granted but just let us know if you want both drawings produced together)
Do you pay my council fees?
We will be more than happy to submit your Planning or Building Regulations Application to the council and act on your behalf until a decision is reached. You will just be required to pay any council fees directly to the Local Authority.
