Architectural Services Ayrshire

At Lennox Design we can handle all aspects of the project from start to finish. Here's an idea of how a typical project is structured:

  • Step 1 - Initial Consultation
  • Step 2 - Measured Building Survey
  • Step 3 - Preliminary Designs
  • Step 4 - Planning Permission Submission
  • Step 5 - Building Warrant Submission
  • Step 6 - Finding a Builder
  • Step 7 - Construction Stages
  • Completion

Step 1:

Contact us to arrange a free, no obligation consultation. Lennox Design will visit you at your home or site to discuss your project. We can give you an idea of what to expect, any potential problems, how long it will take and an idea of the costs involved. This meeting gives us a chance to answer any questions you may have.

Step 2:

In order for us to draw accurate drawings we will need to carry out a full measured building survey. This allows us to draw existing plans, elevations, sections and services. All measurements are carr ied out using the latest laser measuring devices. This provides us with great accuracy when designing your project. The average survey would take approximately 1hr depending on size and complexity.

Step 3

We put our creativity to work preparing existing and proposed layouts, with a few different options. We will not ask for any fees until you are 100% happy with our design.

Step 4:

Once the design is finalised, we will prepare a formal set of design drawings and apply for Planning Permission. This is often preceded by an informal discussion with the planning department to make sure we comply with local and national planning policies.

Step 5:

After securing Planning Permission we will prepare a set of technical drawings and specification about the project which will be submitted to the local council for a Building Warrant Application. This process ensures that all aspects of the work will be carried out to meet Building Standards and Regulations.

If required, we can arrange the contractor to carry out your works. The tradesmen we deal with will make sure your project runs smoothly, and provide you with a great service.
