Architectural Design and Building Regulations

Architectural Design

Any building project represents a substantial financial and personal commitment, so quality and value for money are of major importance. It therefore makes sense to use a professional service that realises the importance of your investment. Roger Parry & Partners LLP delivers this commitment when advising on design.

Our team of professionals include architectural technologists and they know the planning and development sector, its organisation, methods and standards. We can advise and guide you through the rules and regulations connected with planning and building, and monitor construction through to completion.

We aim to work closely with our Clients to develop a brief that will deliver on appearance, function of the building, costs, budget and timing. Only after you have seen and approved initial sketches will the ideas be translated into detailed designs and we will assist you by briefing other consultants and establishing the views of the local planning authority. Our client driven designs combine creative flair with technical knowledge and will ensure that you are satisfied with the completed project.

The dedicated professionals at Roger Parry & Partners have knowledge of historic techniques and materials which allows us to survey, design and manage the alteration and refurbishment of listed buildings. We can establish whether there is the possibility of grants for the repair of buildings of outstanding architectural or historic interest (usually Grade I and possibly Grade II* buildings) or conservation areas from English Heritage or local authorities, provided applications are made before work commences.

Our services include:

  • Design incorporating functionality, budgetary and timing needs
  • Technical drawing and specifications
  • Engaging with project management
  • Building regulations
  • Highways and infrastructure
  • Building conservation, advice for listed premises
  • Grants and finance

Building Regulations

Planning to build, extend or alter your property represents a substantial commitment so obtaining both quality advice and value for money is of major importance. Our professionals understand the regulatory challenges and the significance of your investment and will provide the skills and advice needed to deliver the right results.

A good knowledge of building regulations is essential from the point of initial design. New building work must be completed to these statutory standards, which may affect window placement, floors, roof pitch and other major structural factors that will determine design suitability.

In order to ensure compliance we prepare detailed drawing and specifications for contractors and inspectors while maintaining an established working relationship with building control officers. We are able to work with them to ensure your building complies with the regulations.
