No more waiting for an architect

Architects take a long time – especially if the building project is just a home extension or loft conversion.
It drags. You’re not entirely sure what’s being done, there are endless meetings and there is lots… and lots… of waiting. The traditional architectural process for regular homeowners is clunky, expensive and out-dated.

It’s time to level-up! We produce planning drawings & building regulations plans online for a fixed price from the start.
Any design meetings are over video-call so you can grab a glass of wine and we’ll talk it through after the kids have gone to bed if you prefer.

Once the design is finalised, we get to work immediately – so you can get building!

For everyone in England & Wales

The future of architectural design, today

With the use of clever software, modern camera technology, video-conferencing and highly specialised designers we can produce architectural plans and get council permissions for domestic building projects much more quickly and efficiently than a traditional architect.

You will be assigned an expert Architectural Designer and they will guide you through the entire project from start to finish. They are there to take the mystery and stress out of the home extension process.

The Team

"Are you the same as an architect?"

No, we are Architectural Designers that specialise in domestic building projects. We don’t do hotels or shops or modern churches. We know the Planning and Building Regulations rules for domestic extensions, loft conversions and garden rooms inside out.

Every one of our Designers has a minimum of 10 years experience in architectural design. This means the architectural drawings you receive from us will be of exactly the same standard as (or better than!) your local architect.

Arkiplan building planning drawings

Our story

Our founder, Dave graduated in Architectural Design & Technology, but after a short work placement, he noticed some serious pain-points for homeowner clients in the traditional architectural design process. Dave came up with a radical idea to provide planning drawings and building control drawings purely online to improve turnaround times, amendments and ultimately cost. Understandably, the initial concept of asking customers to measure their own home was met with some resistance at first, but he soon developed the concept of the 3D Home Scan. The existing technology was already being utilised in other industries and it was a perfect fit for Arkiplan due to it’s speed, accuracy and (let’s be honest) coolness.
In 2020 – After 9 years of gradually proving the concept to hundreds of satisifed clients, the COVID pandemic hit and suddenly everyone and their dog were looking for ‘online’ versions of every service. Suddenly we were introduced to thousands of people who were comfortable using video-chat software, looking to save time and money and wanted to get started NOW.
This is exactly who Arkiplan caters for
