Our free guide to the planning process

Before you approach the process of extending or building your dream home, we recommend you read our planning guide; it gives a brief overview of what you can expect in regards to approaching your project. We might be a bit biased, but we think its a great place to start. 

Frequently Asked Questions

This is dependent on many varying factors, including whether you are extending, renovating, converting or building a new home. There are also a number of different elements that will effect the outcome of cost, including varying site conditions, the age and existing condition of your property, history of the site, and more. 

It is common to quote square metre rates and whilst this is a good starting point, the overall project spend has to consider:

  • the specification of interior finishes and fixtures, which could double the cost of your project from a house of standard specification
  • abnormal site conditions – ground conditions, site access, drainage, tree roots etc.
  • legal and professional fees (including the cost of borrowing) and surveys
  • renewable energy investment

We have a wealth of experience from our varied projects completed over the last 10 years, so please feel free to contact us and we will be able to help you build a picture of the likely cost for your project.  There are also some great online resources and we’d recommend visiting the Home Building and Renovating website, which is a great place to start.

We have a 100% approval rate of planning applications in Dorset and Hampshire and have built great relationships with the planning officers as a result. Our great record of successful applications means we understand how to approach the process, but as with every project, the process differs from scheme to scheme. If you would like to know more about the planning process, we have put together a brief guide for you. You can download this above, or follow the link below.

An architect can see potential in every project where others may not. We pride ourselves on identifying small details that will make a difference to your project, and on getting planning permission first time around.

Yes! As we mentioned above, we have a very successful planning approval rate, including success in the green belt and the New Forest National Park. We were also awarded the Winner of the New Forest National Park Building Design Awards 2019 for Best Conservation to a listed farm house.
