How to get started

Get your price

Click here to get your instant quote and we’ll ask you a few questions about your building project. Just enough to give you an instant price for the Architectural drawings.

Upload photographs and measurements

Next, you can tell us more about your proposed design ideas and also upload some photographs of your house and some measured floor plan sketches/previous Architects drawings/neighbours drawings. Using these we can draw up what your property currently looks like and then show your extension or loft conversion etc. as an addition. If it is an entirely new dwelling then you can just provide the site address and any proposed sketch ideas you may have.

One-hour design chat

You will be sent a request to book a design consultation with our Head Technician. At this point, we will answer any questions you have and will go through the finer details of your project. We can utilise Facetime, Zoom chats, screen-sharing, sketching and group calling where necessary to get all the relevant information across and get an amazing brief drawn up for your project. As soon as the call is over, we will book you in for drafting.
***NOTE – If you are only in the early stages of your project, you may wish to use this call just as an opportunity to bounce ideas off an expert. If you do not proceed with drawings from us after the call, we will refund your deposit payment***

Sit tight (but not for long)

Once you have clicked submit, you will automatically enter our work schedule and we will get started producing your drawings. If at this stage we require any further information, we will send you an email. Your drawings will be completed within the time frame you requested and they will be emailed to you for checking. When you are 100% happy with the plans, we will send you a payment request for the remainder of your balance. Upon payment, we will submit your Planning/Building Regulations Application for free! (if required). Once submitted, we will send you instructions of how to pay your application fee directly to the Council. Why not find some inspiration on our Pinterest boards in the mean time!

We’ll send you your drawings!

We provide quick accurate drawings, in the form of a .PDF file, send to your email address – job done!
