Architectural Services

Hi-spec Design and Build offer a comprehensive service for our clients.

Offering the client 1 stop shop for their project. This helps our clients in a number of ways. As they have one point of contact through our company for planning design structural calculations and the build itself. This means that if minor changes are required on site they can be done swiftly and without the stress of the client having to contact individual architects Engineers and trying to liaise with all including the builder. The whole concept of design and build is second to none. 

Most architects will offer a price for drawings for planning and charge astronomical fees for this service for a two storey extension these drawings would normally be around £2000-3000. Then they will charge a second fee for the same extension to provide you building regulation drawings and these could be additional £3000 plus.

We do one set of drawings for planning and building regulations alike. we charge on fee for these drawings which includes initial consultation feasibility survey, application for planning these drawings are yours and you will be able to provide them to any contractor to tender for the work. If you decide to award the job to us we then credit you the price of the drawings back at the end of the project so technically your drawings will be free of charge.

Extensions

Extending your home can be one of the most exciting and prosperous things you can do to your property, adding both a brand new, fresh environment and valuable space to where you choose. Many people choose to extend their property as opposed to moving as it is much cheaper and allows them to avoid the rigmarole, and the most common choice is to create an open plan kitchen/living area for socialising and family life.

Extensions can be multiple stories high as well, allowing you to add even more space to your budgets requirements.

Loft Conversions

Loft Conversions are one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to utilise your existing loft space which might otherwise be used for storage. Providing that the ridge is of suitable height there is usually little external work to complete.

Loft conversions can benefit you where you do not have the availability to build or convert on a ground floor level and are a very beneficial way to add value and space to your property.

Garage Conversions

Like Loft Conversions, converting your Garage is one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to utilise unused property space. Often the external structure is already in place and readily available to use for work.

Many common alterations people choose are to convert their Garage into a Kitchen, Living Room, Office, Bathroom, Home Cinema or even a Gym/Play Room. The possibilities are limited to your imagination.

 

Porches

If you’ve had enough of coming home and not having anywhere to put your coats and shoes then having a Porch built might just be the answer you’ve been looking for!

Adding a Porch to your property has many benefits including additional space, security, noise and thermal insulation while creating a stylish and welcoming entrance to your home.
