We normally recommend that we obtain a CERTIFICATE OF LAWFULNESS before building work commences. This shows that the project complies and has been checked and approved by the council. Once we have this we then instruct the structural engineer to do his calculations and submit these to the building control. We recommend the use of our approved private building control companies. This part of the process can take a few weeks. The council could take a lot longer!
Once you have said 'yes' to Asset Design & Build, usually after we have taken you to one of our customers show homes or if preferred a project in process then within a couple of days the architectural designer (if required) will contact you and visit with you. He usually completes his drawings within a week for you to peruse and then uploads them to the council. Upon instruction of the survey, 50% of the design fee’s will be due, and upon uploading the finalised drawings to the council planning portal for submission, the remaining 50% will be due.
