There are a large number of things to think about when starting out on a build. This is why we have created a toolkit for people planning a build. Follow the link to access the toolkit and then watch the video to explain how to use it.

Start your project with a feasibility study...
We can help you explore different options for your build to help enable you to decide how to take your project to the next stage. Prices start at £2,450 for an illustrated report ready to take to the planning office for pre-application advice.
