ARCHITECTUAL SERVICES LONDON
Here at Proficiency we want your new home to be everything you want it to be – whether palatial or modest, an environmentally-friendly masterpiece or just more space for a growing family – and that all starts with a complete design service.
For over two decades, Proficiency has been working with homeowners and their property professionals to produce all the designs, elevations, drawings and 3D renders required to take a project from your imagination to its completion.
These are floor plans which are drawn to scale and show the room layout from a bird’s eye view i.e as if looking down from above. One of the big advantages of this technique is to highlight room flow i.e how people will move through the space. A floor plan is really a diagram which allows the architect and client to agree on a starting point.
2D drawings can also be specific rather than general and show a slice of a building e.g the side elevation or roof plan, for instance. All this is standard for our architectural services London.
BUILDING REG DRAWINGS
Approval is necessary for certain type of build projects in order to ensure the design and construction falls within certain guidelines. These Building Regulations (or ‘Standards’) cover health and safety aspects for workmen on site, as well as access (ie for disabled individuals) and eco measures (energy consumptions and insulation should have certain environmentally-friendly aspects and particular ‘eco’ build materials are favored over others).
Building Regulations are different from Planning Permission, but both are obtained via the local authority. Building Regulations look at how the building is to be constructed and what materials are to be used, this architectural drawing service is important for the build stage as it lets the builders know exactly what materials are to be used.
We work with leading Structural engineers who use our architectural drawing services 2D plans to calculate and produce structural drawings. This information is for items such as steel beams, foundations, structural slabs and any structural walls.
These can be considered as the most important set of drawings as they determine how your property will be supported and remain safe for years to come. We only use LABC qualified engineers along with appropriate Professional Indemnity Insurances.
