We offer a full range of bespoke specification documents and drawings which can be tailored to your project, allowing your chosen contractor to provide a detailed and accurate quotation for the work. This extra level of detail over and above the Building Regulations will ensure that your project gets the best value for money and cost certainty possible.

If a building contract is required we have expert knowledge of the JCT contract suite and can draw up a suitable contract for your project, giving you piece of mind that a robust agreement is in place between you and the contractor.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve picked out some answers to the most popular questions we get asked by clients and potential customers about our Architectural Services.

To read our full list of frequently asked questions, please click here.

Do I need permission?2023-10-05T13:52:12+01:00

Most proposed building work is subject to compliance with planning policy, however whether you must formally apply for planning consent is dependent on the nature of the work you intend to undertake and the type of property you own.

More minor extensions and alterations may be undertaken without the need to formally apply for planning consent if they meet Permitted Development criteria.

Andrews Eades will be able to advise you whether your project meets Permitted Development criteria, and if not, which type of planning application is required to apply for consent.

What is the difference between planning consent and Building Regulations consent?2023-08-24T12:54:45+01:00

Planning consent is the permission to carry out development works, therefore planning drawings tend to focus on the layout, size, and appearance of the building.

Building Regulations consent seeks to confirm that your development works meet the minimum technical standards as defined in the Approved Documents. Therefore, Building Regulations drawings are more detailed and tend to focus on structural stability, energy efficiency, and the wellbeing of its occupiers and users.

Do you provide details for builders to price from?2023-08-24T14:43:05+01:00

Yes, building regulations drawings are a relatively basic specification. We would be pleased to quote for additional specification, schedules and overseeing works on site for you.

Do I need a building contract?2023-08-24T14:40:53+01:00

No, it is not a statutory requirement to have a contract for a building project. However, we recommend that a contract is put in place for larger or complex projects as it binds both client and contractor to a clear framework for how the project is run and provides mechanisms for resolving disputes.
