Architectural Services

What can we do for you?

Hello. As you’re reading this page would we be correct in guessing you’re interested in architectural services of one kind or another? You’re in the right place!

Our range of services covers both residential and commercial projects and we can offer as much or as little support as you need right now.

Whether you’re hoping to extend your home a little – or a lot – or you are a private landlord wishing to convert or extend one of your portfolio properties or you have a plot of land that you’d like to build on, we can help.

Or perhaps you just need Building Regulation details. Or an experienced project manager to push on a stalled project, whether commercial or residential. Just give us a call on 0114 209 7662; we’ll be delighted to hear from you and disuss what we can do for you.

The Ecclesall Design team has worked together for some six years and has a 100% success rate in achieving planning permission. That’s an amazing track record and one that not many architects can boast of.  The key to our achievement? Great designs, a thorough knowledge of Planning Legislation and the Permitted Development Rights and an ethical approach to the work we take on.

We’re proud of our reputation and, as you might imagine, we’re very keen to maintain our 100% success record. When you entrust Ecclesall Design to carry out the designs for your project – from loft or basement conversion, home extension, dream new build house, commercial property or innovative housing development – you can be sure that we respect and value the opportunity you have given us to work with you. We take our work seriously and take great pride in what we do.

Our fixed price means you can budget with confidence.  We quote according to the complexity of the job and the price we quote is the price you pay. We make any amendments and fine-tuning for the same price. We want you to be truly happy with the designs we draw and the service we provide and we’ll keep going until we have achieved the optimum outcome for you.

Why not give us a ring on 0114 209 7762 or email us on – we’d love the opportunity to hear about your project.

Full service package

Maybe this is the first time you’ve thought about a home extension or other building project and, frankly, you’re a little nervous. Or perhaps you’ve done it before and it didn’t turn out too well so you want to be sure that, this time, it’ll go more smoothly.

If you’d feel reassured to have someone else take responsibility and make it all happen, you can have faith in us. We’ll work with you and explain the process – and costs – at every step of the way. You’ll still have control but you can be sure that you have us in your corner so you don’t feel alone facing a bewildering new world. You can trust us. We really have done it before!

We’ll take you by the hand and lead you from the initial meeting through the whole design process to getting planning permission and then onto helping you get quotes from builders and we’ll project manage the whole job for you if you’d like us to, from start to finish.

Do you already know you’re looking for a one-stop shop? Are you pressed for time but know exactly what you want? Leave it to us. We’ll sort everything out for you with as much or as little involvement as you want. Our aim is to make your life easier so your construction project takes place while you get on with life.

Would you like an initial chat with one of us? Just pick up the phone or send us a brief message on and we’ll gladly talk you through the process so you understand how the various stages fit together including the difference between Planning Permission and a Building Control Approval Notice, when you need to apply for Planning Permission and what exactly is meant by Permitted Development rights, and any other terms you might have heard that perhaps you would like some clarification about.

You’ll find us friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. Just get in touch!

Project management

Our experience includes running construction companies for a number of years. That hands-on knowledge of how the building process works is invaluable to our clients (and builders) as we are able to provide ongoing advice and project management before and after the project gets off the ground. We also provide project management for commercial projects, especially if progress has stalled or when you just want to make sure it runs smoothly from the very start.

We have worked on hundreds of projects from modest rear extensions to whole-house remodelling to commercial warehouses to innovative new build homes, in different locations including Conservation Areas, gardens,  limited-access sites and we’ve even managed planning permission for 13 detached houses on a field formerly restricted to horse grazing (before we became involved, that is). Whatever your project is, we can help.

Do you have an important new project on the horizon? Has your work started already but, frustratingly, it’s all going rather slower than you’d expected? Sometimes in the construction industry a delay can be a fact of life – adverse weather, materials not turning up on time or out of stock due to shortages, unexpected ground conditions or problems with the existing building – but oftentimes the project just needs a fresh eye and a new pair of hands to pull it together and get everything back on track.

Why not drop us a line with an outline of your situation on or give us a ring and let us see what we can do to help you?

Follow-up services

We have a trusted team of other professionals we work with and will recommend if you’re looking for competent people for specific tasks. Builders, structural engineers, building inspectors, topographical surveyors, planning consultants, specialist land law solicitors, Party Wall Act surveyors, road and drainage engineers, energy assessors (SAP calcs), health and safety consultants, trades people.

Just ask; we’re here to help!
