You may not require all of these stages, - but planning drawings aren’t the end of
the design process. We will usually give you a separate quote for each of these stages.
Initial Proposals: Based on your brief, we’ll provide some preliminary plans & elevations
that you can comment on.
Planning Drawings: The proposals you accept, - laid out on a sheet with a title block.
These will carry information such as an overall location plan, external materials
Building Regulation Drawings: The accepted planning proposals are updated to comply
with current building regulations only.
Construction Drawings: These expand on the building regulations to show more detail
- some usually 1:10 or larger to show that work should be done in a specific way.
There may be several ways a builder could satisfy building regulations, but this
firms things things up and sets the quality.
Usually a written document specifying all elements of the work - for example if you
want terrazzo floor tiles, this is where the size of tiles & manufacturer will be
listed - whereas the construction drawings may just indicate a zone for ‘floor tiles’
