Design and Planning

Getting Started

We offer a simple and transparent design and planning service that is bespoke for each project. Our stages of work are designed to provide you the flexibility to choose how much involvement you would like.

Below we have outlined the main stages of work that follow an initial consultation and acceptance of a fee proposal. The content of each stage can vary depending on the nature of your project, however we have included common outputs.

It is possible to come to us with initial designs and develop them into detailed plans to then submit your Planning application, or use your own designs and we can provide you with Building Control drawings. We work with Local Authorities and external consultants across the UK and are confident in helping you navigate the seemingly complicated planning process.

Fees & Agreements

Our fee proposal is structured to follow the stages of work and we only begin a new stage with your agreement. At the core of our work stages is your budget and project aspirations. Making sure both elements align is vital, we achieve this by cost modelling your project at each stage of work. This helps build a full picture to help you make the informed decisions.

Once you embark on a project with PYC Design we would provide you with a Letter of Agreement and a schedule of works with expected delivery dates for work outputs.
