Arkiplan grow your projects

Drawing plans for extensions and loft conversions - all online!

We’re a new way to to get faster, cheaper architectural drawings online. We see things differently, challenging traditional processes, by helping you to get professional building plan drawings faster, cheaper and easier – helping you to grow your projects.

One big tick off the list

Building a loft conversion, kitchen extension or garden building can seem like an overwhelming list of endless tasks. Keep it simple by removing the need for a traditional architect.

We provide the same drawings, without the endless consultation visits, and we do it while saving you money – that’s one thing to tick off!

A simple process for perfect drawings

To start, all we need is a few photos and dimensions. Our project handler Dave will give you a quick phone call to confirm a few details, then our draftsteam work their magic and create your drawings – see our video below

Are we the same as an architect?

No. We are Architectural Technicians, and the Planning Permission or Building Regulations drawings you receive from us will be of exactly the same standard as (or better than!) your local Architect.

Being entirely online allows us to offer drawings anywhere in England & Wales. This means we take on 10x the amount of projects a local Architectural firm would handle which means we have WAY more experience, specifically with domestic extensions and loft conversions.
We have seen and dealt with every potential pitfall a thousand times.
What most traditional Architects would consider to be small-fry, boring projects, we have basically chosen to become Shaolin Masters of.

Take Control of Your Building Project.

Dave Chamberlain graduated in 2008 with a First Class Hons Degree in Architectural Design & Technology and after a short work placement decided to bravely go it alone. After a couple of months drafting for local clients he had the crazy idea to try and reinvent the whole Planning drawings industry using the internet. The whole idea of asking customers to measure their own house and upload their own photographs was obviously met with some resistance at first but Dave was determined to prove to the nay-sayers that it could work. It worked better than anyone could have imagined. It turns out there is a constant pool of customers on a tight budget who know exactly what extension or loft conversion they want, can use a tape measure and own a smartphone. This is exactly who caters for.

We are now a small Architectural drawings business based in South Wales and we produce an ungodly amount of Planning and Building Regulations drawings for customers all over the UK. We’ve been at it for over ten years and have become experts at problem solving to get the best design possible for our customers lifestyles and we know all the tricks to increasing their chances of getting the Local Authority’s approval.
We constantly hear stories from our customers about their failed relationships with their Architects. They have often fallen out over huge drawing delays, spiralling unexpected costs, a lack of enthusiasm from their designer and sometimes much worse. has beat our annual turnover records every year since the business began as people are gradually realising they don’t have to put up with shoddy service anymore.

Our promise is to provide high-quality architectural drawings for our customers at a fair price as quick as they need them. Our standard turnaround time is 14 days but if needs be, we will charge an additional fee to bump you up the queue and work late into the evening if we have to.
