Architectural Design & Surveys
We provide pre-construction services including the Planning Stage for Residential and Commercial clients, and exclusively to our existing client base, Building Regulations Drawings and Structural Design.
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 drawings available as soon as possible.
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.
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.
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.
