A house extension project is a significant commitment requiring patience and a certain amount of funds. This event rarely happens more than once or twice in a person’s lifetime so it’s only natural that you may feel cautious about choosing the right professionals to use for your project. We are mindful about the stress and importance of the decisions a homeowner must take on the journey from the initial thought to the finished building.
The extraordinary nature of these projects is the reason why our Ecclesall Design team is focused on providing clarity on the steps involved in the whole process and the relevant factors that determine the fees we quote for the services we provide. The costs of the architectural design stage will be only a small proportion of the overall project budget that includes construction costs. However, the right decision at this stage is essential to get the high quality and attentive, effective service you need to ensure the best possible result for your house extension.
As part of our service proposal we offer 3 packages to choose between for house extension projects. They reflect different types of drawings and the included services. The image on the left sets out key features for each package. Please also read our ‘2D and 3D Drawings for House Extensions’ page to learn more about the different types of drawings; our team will be happy to advise on which package would best suit your project.
The architectural design service is the first step in the whole extension project, and we feel it’s our responsibility to share our knowledge of the process to provide you the confidence and ability to understand the steps ahead. For this reason, we have prepared a House Extension Project Process Scheme explaining the important steps that are required to lead your project from the initial enquiry to the building process.
In this page we are going to look in more detail at the fees that are involved to turn your ideas into architectural design drawings and achieve planning permission and building regulation approval. We will explain the factors that determine our fees and give an indication of the other professionals and authorities whose fees should be considered. Also, we will provide some advice and information related to construction costs and choosing the right builder.
