Getting Started

How it all began

Dave graduated in Architectural Design & Technology and after a short work placement decided to go it alone. After a couple of months drafting for local clients he had an idea. To provide Planning drawings, purely online. The concept of asking customers to measure their own home was met with some resistance at first. 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 ArkiPlan.co.uk caters for. Planning drawings & building regulations plans online.

Our story

We have grown, producing 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. Following huge drawing delays, spiraling unexpected costs, and a lack of enthusiasm from their designer. Sometimes much worse. ArkiPlan.co.uk 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 drawings for our customers at a fair price as quick as they need them. Our standard turnaround time is 14 days. However, 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.

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!
