Feasibility & Design

At the initial consultation stage a brief will be taken to assess the feasibility of a project. Does it need planning permission? Are there any constraints? Once commissioned a measured survey will be undertaken (if an existing property) and a set of survey drawings are produced. EAS Ltd will prepare initial sketch proposals based upon the client brief and this may involve multiple options for the client to consider.

Planning, Conservation & Listed Building Applications

Once a sketch design has been agreed with a client, EAS Ltd will finalise the drawings and prepare any associated documentation required for the application. We will submit and administer the application on the clients behalf and liaise with the Local Planning Authority (LPA) throughout the process and provide any updates to the client during the 8 week statutory process. If for any reason the LPA have issues with the proposals presented to them, we will work proactively to find a solution for the client to obtain planning permission. If a solution cannot be agreed with the LPA and the application is refused, we will consider if it is appropriate to submit an Appeal to the Planning Inspectorate.

Building Regulations Applications

Technical drawings and a construction specification are then to obtain Building Regulations approval from Local Authority Building Control, private Building Control bodies such as NHBC. At this stage, other consultants may be required, ie. a Structural Engineer for a steel beam design. Once a Full Plans approval has been issued by Building Control, the client should have a complete package to enable their Builder to undertake the construction works.

Construction Detailing Packages

On some build projects, extra detailing may be a consideration to ensure that more complex elements of the build are built out correctly on site. Or maybe there are planning conditions that require a submission of details, such as window joinery or brick features. EAS Ltd can provide a "tailor-made" drawings package to suit the particular project and the specific needs of the client or their Builder.

Other Services

Should you require EAS Ltd to obtain quotations for the construction works, advise on suitable builders or monitor work on site, we provide a simplified service without full Contract Administration. We can prepare "Schedule of Works" to aid with obtaining quotations, advise on builders or individual trades to suit the size of project and undertake periodic inspections to check that the construction stage runs smoothly through to completion.
