Working Drawings

"A technical drawing which serves as a guide for construction"

Following planning approval, the technical design is prepared in order to achieve Building Regulation approval. This includes co-ordinating the architectural, structural and building services information into the design. Working drawings provide detailed specific information on relevant elements of the building fabric and are used by the contractor for the construction phase.

FAQ's

We recently had Building Regulation drawings prepared for a small ground floor extension to our house. We have also received quotes from builders and we are ready to begin construction. A friend suggested that we should have some sort of written agreement or contract in place, is this necessary?

I am wanting to progress with a planning application for an extensive extension and refurbishment of a detached house on a large and matured landscaped plot on the outskirts of Sevenoaks. However, when I spoke to a builder friend of mine for advice he mentioned there are now a lot of different consultants I may need to employ before I apply, is this correct?

We have recently moved into a new semi detached house in Sevenoaks and are hoping to extend the property with a single storey rear extension to provide more family friendly space. Can you give us some advice on permitted development rights and if we actually need to provide architect's drawings or submit a planning application?
