), we are only carrying out site visits and surveys in extreme cases.
Existing clients can be assured of continued off-site services, however we are facing challenges to our normal workflow. Please be patient with us, but also contact us at any time via your preferred methods.
We provide pre-construction services including the Concept Design, Planning Application Stage and Building Regulations for Residential and Commercial clients, with Structural Design performed by local and well established Engineers.
years experience of the planning phase, Home and Commercial owners considering alterations or New Build developments, can be assured of a professional service. In residential settings we have designed and submitted extensions from 50 to 1500 Square Feet, Commercial properties in excess of 10,000 Square Feet and all at a reasonable price. We survey any size of property whether it’s a 1 bedroom Cottage, or a 10 bedroom 15,000 sq. Ft. mansion and maintain live drawings and technical data as the work progresses, to provide confidence to the building owner and to assist Building Alteration professionals with a smooth schedule of works.
Great Architectural design can only be accomplished with experience and knowledge of the limitless possibilities available with modern building materials. Our concepts utilise these while respecting historical and well proven methods of construction, as every site and individual is unique.
The two dimensional drawings created using CAD do not always allow the imagination to perceive how the proposal will look, so as an optional service we can produce 3D Visualisations at various levels of realism. These allow the client to see images of their concept at any angle or distance, we have also found these to be helpful to construction professionals when dealing with complicated builds where accuracy is of the utmost importance. Some projects can evolve as work on the ground progresses and we are always ready to receive new instructions and act upon them quickly.
We use a range of technologies to produce an efficient design process, starting on-site by using Laser Measurements (By Leica Geosystems) to produce accurate surveys of buildings, external structures and small areas of land. CAD (Computer Aided Design) software is then used to accurately and efficiently reproduce survey information into base drawings, these are then used to produce proposal plans. For larger sites we have acquired a selection of competent and reliable sub-contractors that can undertake large land parcels that we closely manage.
By choosing CPA Design, all clients can be assured of a swift and efficient service, from the initial meeting and survey, to design concept and finally planning application drawings. Should you require an urgent retrospective planning application with associated drawings, CPA Design will make your project a priority, with an application submitted as soon as possible.
