Residential Architectural Services for homeowners and developers in detail the Process.

ORA Design will meet you for a no obligation
meeting to discuss initial concept ideas,
approximate build costs and agree timescales.
ORA Design will discuss the way forward to get
the project underway. Following this meeting
ORA Design will prepare for you our fee
proposal for our services. This stage is free
of charge.
ORA Design will always use our experience
and expertise and every resource available to
obtain a Planning Application approval;
however you never can be 100% certain of the
decision of a Planning Application. It can prove
more economical to produce minimal, simple
drawings to obtain feedback from the Planning
department prior to preparing documentation
for a full Planning Application.
Upon appointing ORA Design we will carry out
a full measured survey and produce initial
concept drawings which upon your approval will
become the basis for the Planning Application
drawings along with the other information such
as reports and schedules as required to
compile a set of Planning Application documents
for submission of a full application. Upon your
approval ORA Design will proceed to submit the
Planning Application package to the local
authority on your behalf.
Upon obtaining Planning Approval ORA Design
will produce further required documentation and
progress the drawings for a Building Regulations
application. The drawings will be worked up in
lots more detail to demonstrate compliance with
the Building Regulations. Upon Building
Regulations approval the drawing package can
be used to approach building contractors to
obtain quotations!
Following Building Regulations approval the
Building Regulations drawing package can be
used to approach building contractors to obtain
quotations! However, if required ORA Design can
prepare a more detailed drawing package for
more resolved detail. Ora Design will produce
1:10, 1:5 and even 1:2 scale detail sheets
indicating design of bespoke items such as
joinery, window systems or to resolve any
complex areas of construction you feel you
want resolved in detail to obtain a building
contractors fixed price!
Your Building Regulation or detailed drawing
package can be used to approach building
contractors to obtain quotations! ORA Design
have a selection of contractors who ORA Design
have good working relationships with that Ora
Design can recommend to you. Please contact
