Architectural Plans

Architectural floor plans are required where a loft is to be used for habitable use such as a bedroom. Our architectural plans and drawings are based on a measured survey of your property and are drawn up with the use of Computer Aided Design (CAD) to show the existing and proposed development.


Storage lofts rarely require structural alteration to the roof and so formal plans are not required. Through accurate measurement and calculation, design and explanation we will illustrate and agree with you on site your building requirements.

Planning your loft
Whether you require our complete loft conversion service; initial (CAD) building plans; or Local Authority submissions and administration for Planning and Building Regulations Applications through to Approval; we provide a high quality service based on years of experience, one which you can rely on.

Your final loft or dormer design will be an amalgam of your loft ideas, our considerable design experience, the constraints of your loft and building structure and building regulations, and perhaps local Planning Controls.


What do Plans show
Floor plans detail the loft measurements or dimensions and the exact position of walls, ceilings, heights, widths and pitch of roof, all drawn to scale using Computer Aided Design (CAD).


Loft or dormer conversion plans generally specify:

  • The property address
  • Client name
  • Project summary e.g. Dormer Extension
  • Scale e.g. 1 : 25,000
  • Date plans were completed
  • Location plan and north indicator


Proposed Building Construction Drawings:

  • Floor layouts
  • Existing front/back elevation
  • Proposed front/back elevation
  • Section through the conversion


Drawing Annotations

  • Names of Rooms
  • Types of wall
  • Building materials to use
  • Building methods to employ
  • Key dimensions of loft elements
