Architectural Design

  • Use of latest 3D CAD

  • Construction detailing

  • Junction detailing

  • Section detailing

My first aim is to fully understand your requirements and expectations.

I will give honest advice and then set about detailing your proposal bearing in mind your final budgets.

I use the latest Autodesk 'Revit 2019' CAD design system to produce 'virtual reality' drawings including the necessary detailed section drawings and specifications whilst keeping costs effective.

I offer the following:

  • Basic 2D Cad design drawings

  • Advanced 3D Modelling

  • Performance detailing to negate 'Thermal Bridging'

  • Practical section details for all parties to understand the building detail.

Building Engineering

  • Building Regulation specifications

  • Practical building assistance

  • Design issues resolved

  • 'High performance' detailing

It is important that everyone understands your end requirements from the onset.

By detailing your work using my years of practical experience, I can give sufficient detail to allow for accurate costing  prior to the commencement of your project and a full understanding of your requirements allowing your job to progress to an efficient programme.

Building always has its unknown complications from ground conditions and effect from weather to supply chain issues but with honest and effective planning and detailing, this can be kept to a minimum.

I am always happy to discuss the practicalities of your proposed project with our first meeting F.O.C.

Building Surveying

  • Measurement surveys

  • Preparation of plans

  • Bills of quantities

Party Wall Matters

  • Notices

  • Condition surveys

  • Awards

  • Completion surveys

From a full understanding of the practical side of a building I can use my experience and the latest in measuring and levelling equipment to detail existing buildings.

I prepare accurate drawings with a level of detail required for the project in hand.

I always respect your budget and only carry out the necessary work to allow your project to proceed meeting Planning and Building Reg. requirements together with allowing for accurate costing.

I offer the following:

  • Measurement surveys

  • Preparation of plans and drawings 

  • Bills of quantities (at various levels)

When proposing extending your home, it is important to consider the implication of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996.

Under the Act, it is the legal responsibility of the property owner to serve the necessary 'Notices' if required.

The implications not only involve attached buildings but also excavations if being carried out within 6.000M (20 feet)

of a neighbouring property or even garden wall.

PWS are happy to assist you with this process early in the design stage rather than having costly hold-ups when your building work has commenced. Please ask for further information.
