Your project

We understand construction projects can be daunting so, if you require it, we will be delighted to manage your project for you from start to finish, taking on all of the wide range of challenges which present themselves along the way. Equally, if you are unfazed or you are an experienced client, we can also provide a light touch, helping out as and when you require, at any time or at any stage, however large or small. Whatever the role you wish us to provide we will aim to take the process as stress free and enjoyable as possible for you. The Planning system commonly presents the greatest single barrier to the success of a project so we typically divide our projects into 2 distinct stages either side of Planning Approval. Nevertheless, particularly with domestic projects and residential conversions, it is surprising how much can be achieved without the need for planning permission through what is known as ‘Permitted Development’.


What We Do in Stage 1 - Pre Planning

Inform Architects are experts in both the Planning System and the Permitted Development Regulations, we can guide you safely through the planning maze to an approval or advise you what you might like to do to avoid an application entirely. However, we believe it is important that gaining consent from the Local Authority is not seen as the primary consideration and we always strive to ensure that we create an exciting design that simultaneously meets your brief and exceeds your expectations. Below is a summary of the services we offer as part of our stage 1 services:


  • Site Analysis
  • Planning and Permitted Development Advice
  • Feasibility Studies, Conceptual Design
  • Pre Application Enquiries
  • 3D Visualisation, Assemblage of appropriate design teams
  • Production of Design Reports
  • Applications for Lawful Development Certificates
  • Public Consultations
  • Outline Planning Applications
  • Full Planning Applications
  • and much more

What We Do in Stage 2 - Post Planning

Once permission for your project is granted we can guide you through the next set of steps, onto site and all the way to completion. At this stage, it is very easy for a project budget to spiral out of control without expert involvement. Inform Architects have a great deal experience in technical design and in managing projects in their later stages. We always strive to ensure that our clients get a finished build that is on time, on budget, to a high quality and in line with their expectations. Below is a summary of the services we offer as part of our post planning services:


  • Planning Condition Discharge,
  • Detail Design,
  • Assemblage of Appropriate Projects Teams,
  • Building Regulations Applications,
  • Working Drawings,
  • Specification Writing
  • Party Wall Notification,
  • Production of Tender Packages,
  • Contractor Management and Liaison
