We have a dedicated team of design engineers. DG Design Associates. Their Senior Engineer, who has over 40 years design and build experience will call, measure your home, discuss your requirements, and provide a drawing for your approval, you can if you wish to make alterations, our aim is to design your new room(s) to your specifications, this is the first stage in bringing your dreams to Life!
When you contact our office or surveyor direct, an appointment will be made within 7 days to visit your home, daytime or evening, to determine suitability. Our Design Engineer will discuss every possible option available to you and materials we can use.
If you decide to progress to the drawing stage, DG Design Associates will arrange to call again, measure your home, and begin to prepare the drawing. Drawings are usually ready to view within 2 weeks, this is again done in your home at your convenience. If you are entirely happy with the proposal, we can submit for planning, (not always required) which takes approximately 8 weeks for approval, and Building regulations, approximately 2 weeks. On approval, you can move to construction.
Based on a traditional 3 bed semi, We will provide a 1st stage only drawing for £480. (Larger properties or greater distance may be more). This will show your room size, position of stairs and if its a dormer extension how it looks from outside. At this point we can estimate your build costs.
