Services for Builders/Developers

I have worked for a number of local builders and developers over many years particularly in the area of small housing developments as well as barn and other residential conversions.

I can either work direct for the builder or for the client. I am aware that many clients approach a builder first without realising that a builder can only price a job accurately once drawings have been prepared. I can also assist the builder with initial advice on whether or not a particular proposal will require planning approval and if it is likely to be acceptable if it does need formal planning consent.

I have many years experience of dealing with Harrogate Borough Council as well as other local planning authorities and have considerable expertise in the area of listed buildings. I have also worked with bodies helping elderly or disabled people stay in their own homes and have considerable experience in the field of adaptations and general accessibility.

For builders who have a scheme with planning approval I can also offer a partial service to provide detailed drawings and/or obtain Building Regulation approval either through local authority or private building control. Overall I aim to provide a flexible and timely range of services at a competitive price.
