How we can help

If you are planning to undertake an extension, conversion or renovation at your property, we have it covered.

3DGE Architecture strive to make the whole process easier and more affordable with our design and planning knowledge to bring your ideas and goals to fruition. Contact us today to see how we can help with your project.

Design & Feasibility Consultation

Design and feasibility consultation can begin with an initial desktop study and discussion over the phone where you can share your vision and aspirations with us. Then we can consider the best approach to efficiently achieve your goals and enhance your home.

Meeting & Measured Survey

Site visit to discuss the project in more detail and any further requirements or needs. We will undertake a detailed measured survey of the whole property to ensure our drawings are as precise and accurate as possible.

Architectural & Design Drawings

Following the measured survey we can produce our architectural or phase 1 drawings which are the first step in bringing your vision to life. These will include accurate 2D floor plans, cut through sections and external elevations of both existing and proposed phases. 

Suitable for planning and lawful applications or initial tenders.

3D Visualisation

If you struggle to imagine or envisage how your project could look, then our 3D Visualisation is a fantastic tool to help aid the design process. Giving you an early insight to how your finished project could look with photo realistic images.

Planning & Lawful Applications

If planning permission is required, we will prepare and submit all drawings and documentation needed as part of the application and liaise with the local council on behalf of our clients.

A project may be covered by the permitted development rights where a lawful certificate can be submitted instead, whatever the requirements we will advise throughout the process.

Construction & Building Regulation Drawings

Our building regulations or phase 2 drawings will include detailed plans, sections and elevations. Technical annotations and specifications to obtain building control approval and allow builder to provide accurate quotations.

Drone Survey Service

Our drone services include photography, videography, inspections, mapping, and 3D models. Contact us for professional, high-quality and cost-effective results.

  • Do I need planning permission?
    Whether you need planning permission or not for your project depends on various factors such as the size and scale, the type of property you have and your location. In some cases, you may be able to build an extension without planning permission if it falls within the permitted development rights of your property. These rights allow you to make certain changes to your property without needing to apply for planning permission, such as small extensions and loft conversions. However, there are limits on the size, height, and location of the extension that you can build under permitted development rights, and these vary depending on your location and property type. If your proposed extension exceeds the permitted development limits or you do not have permitted development rights, you will need to apply for planning permission from your local planning authority. They will consider factors such as the impact of the extension on the appearance of the property and the surrounding area, as well as its impact on neighbours and any relevant planning policies. It is always best to check with your local planning authority to see whether you need planning permission for your extension, as the rules and regulations can vary depending on your location and property type.
  • Do I need building control?
    Yes, you will generally need building control approval for an extension to your property. Building control is responsible for ensuring that any new construction work, including extensions, meets the relevant building regulations and safety standards. Building control approval is required to ensure that your extension is structurally sound, safe, and compliant with the relevant building regulations. Building control will check the plans for your extension and inspect the construction work at various stages to ensure that it meets the required standards. This will typically include checking the foundations, structural elements, fire safety measures, insulation, and ventilation. There are two ways to obtain building control approval for an extension: through your local authority building control department or through a private sector approved inspector. You will need to submit an application for building control approval before starting work on your extension, and there may be fees associated with this process. It is important to note that if you do not obtain building control approval for your extension, you may be in breach of building regulations and this could cause issues if you decide to sell your property in the future.
