Following the receipt of a Planning Consent or in anticipation of Consent, we offer a full Technical Design Service where the detailed Planning drawings are reviewed. Full Technical working drawings are then prepared to indicate how the specific design will be dimensionally laid out with accompanying sections and elevations to show all building heights for ease of construction. This will allow the Client, Surveyors, Valuers, Contractors or others to cost, value and plan how the building will be delivered and built on site.

During the design process we are also able to undertake the role as ‘Lead Consultant’ and liaise with the client and all other design team members to co-ordinate the overall design package and ensure program dates are achieved.

We would expect the Technical Drawing Package to consist of the following detailing, however, this can be tailored to suit the Client's exact requirements:

  • 1:50 scale floor plans annotated with all relevant construction notes, dimensions, door and window references, together with engineering proposals as advised by the Consulting Engineer.
  • 1:50 scale sub-structure plans showing load bearing wall positions, foundations (by Engineer), service entries and foul and storm drainage connections.
  • 1:50 scale outline structural floor plans and 1:50 scale roof key plans for Specialist Designers.
  • 1:100 or 1:50 scale elevations with material finishes and relevant dimensions. 
  • 1:50 and 1:20 sections, where necessary, with relevant construction notes and dimensions.
  • 1:50 electrical layouts with radiator positions.
  • Door and window schedules, Accommodation schedules.
  • Fire Strategy drawings for apartment blocks.
  • Detailing and reference to ‘Accredited’ or ‘Enhanced’ construction details in line with the SAP report.
  • For Affordable Homes schemes, produce furniture and space standard layouts in line with the current Housing Quality Indicator design guides.
  • Design dwellings in accordance with ‘Lifetime Homes’ or ApprovedDocument Part M(1), (2) & (3).

In addition to the Technical drawings, the following can be provided to form part of the overall Technical Package:

  • Full sets of construction notes and standard detail packs.
  • Production of 'External Works' site layout indicating all boundary treatments and hard landscaping proposals.
  • Large scale details to ease construction on site and provide the client with a cost effective and practical solution.
  • Liaising and cross checking of all other Specialist Design Consultants' drawings i.e. Consulting Civil and Structural Engineer, Mechanical and Electrical Engineer, Energy Rating Consultants, Sustainable Home Assessors, Timber Frame Manufacturers and Concrete/Truss Designers.
  • Manage and co-ordiante third party designers - Trusses, joists, stairs, concrete floors, M&E, Kitchens etc.

  • Production of Sales plans showing all finished room sizes in metric and imperial for brochure purposes.

As part of the Full Technical Design Service, we offer to collate, submit and negotiate the statutory approvals required with the relevant bodies prior to construction commencing on site.

On all projects completed, Designer's Risk Assessments and Hazard Identification Records are produced and issued to the appointed Principle Designer for inclusion in the Pre-Construction Health and Safety Plan.

Technical projects are undertaken using the latest ArchiCAD, AutoCAD & Revit software.
