The majority of projects are based on a fixed fee to visit the site for a survey, discuss the project with you and send your plans and details through the post. After a telephone discussion we ought to be able to explain what you are likely to get with and without planning permission. If we are unable to do this then a site visit can be arranged.

A standard extension will start from £575.00p and if calculations and structural details are required for support beams or special foundations then this will be quoted for separately. Loft conversions are £775.00p inclusive calculations and structural details. Fees for structural engineering work are quoted on the merits of each project.

New house planning applications (one offs) are costed from £950.00 and includes site survey and discussions on site. The preparation of a draft and another meeting to go over this draft and make any necessary changes before full plans are prepared ready for submission to the local planning department. Facilities for the disabled must be considered in the design both internally as well as externally and this can be discussed with you at one of the meetings.

Once our invoice is settled we shall submit your applications on line along with instructions to you on how to pay your council fees. Once we know that a planning application is successful we will quote you for the working drawings that the contractor will require to build it. To convert a bungalow to house/chalet by raising the roof will cost £820.00 and to include all calculations and structural details.

*These fees are typical for the Essex areas.
