Architectural Design

Experts in Architectural Design

At DSB Property Designs we offer architectural design services throughout Essex. Our role can be limited to providing advice on budgets and preliminary concept designs to a full turnkey service.

As an experienced architectural practice, we offer a wide range of services. From producing plans for residential and commercial developments to consulting with the local council regarding planning permission and building regulations, we will always deliver the highest standard of service.

Our Scope and Experience

Our experts can provide lead consultant, design and project management from drawing board to build completion. Our scope and experience range from residential projects such as rear extensions and loft conversions to new builds and commercial redevelopments. Whatever project you have in mind, our architectural design services are designed to align perfectly with your needs.

An Introduction to Architectural Design

We offer personalised advice on planning permission requirements and can give you advice on how best to ensure your project gains planning permission. The good news is that the majority of residential renovation projects fall under permitted development and may not require planning permission.

Due to our vast experience in dealing with local authority planning and building control departments, we have a solid understanding of planning policies and regulations and which projects are likely to be granted. Based on this knowledge and expertise, we have a high success rate of first-time approvals.

A Wide Network of Expertise at Our Fingertips

Our in-house team will work with you to design and prepare planning and construction drawings. On larger and more complex projects, we have a wide network of consultants and experts to call on. From planning consultants and arborists to structural engineers and energy experts, we can provide the required technical expertise to maximise the chances of your project gaining consent.

"Thanks to David and Paul at DSB, our house is the most modern house in the street. Paul had to go through multiple design proposals with the council, as the original design was rejected saying it's too contemporary. He was very patient and happy to make amendments."
