A small architectural project eg. Conversion of your garage into a new habitable room, a porch, a single storey kitchen/lounge extension.

A medium architectural project eg. a loft extension, a two-storey extension.

A large architectural project eg. A new property, substantially changing the existing style (such as building more than half of the floor area again).

Filling in this form and providing information about your project will mean you don’t have to spend all day phoning around discussing the project over and over again and with the knowledge these professionals have been checked and rated.

What needs to be considered

  1. Do the works require Planning Permission or are you in a conservation area that needs special consideration or are the works allowed under permitted development.
  2. Building Regulation approval (all structural works need to be designed and calculated so that they are safe and comply with Building Regulations).
  3. What is the best design/layout to suit your needs and the style of your house.
  4. What is your budget, what is it going to cost and how will you fund it.
  5. Will you need an agreement with your neighbour before work starts under The Party Wall etc Act 1996.
  6. How will you choose the right builder for the job.

A small architectural project may be provided by an Architectural Technologist or a Building Surveyor as they both have the necessary training. In the first instance answering the above questions will help you make the right decision.

Chartered Architectural Technologists, MCIAT, are qualified to offer design services and management of your project from your original idea, through the planning process and design stage and on to its completion.  For more information visit the CIAT website

Technologists work closely with a range of property professionals, including other architects and engineers. For more complex design ideas, (grand designs) they may recommend the services of an architect.
