planning approved

Before progressing with any project requiring planning and building standards approval a free initial assessment is given highlighting the potential problems, if any that may be encountered, thus allowing clients to weigh up the viability, risk and financial constraints involved in taking a particular project forward.

It is often easy to say yes to everything but this way of working can lead to wasted time and money and econstruct firmly believe that being up front and honest about a projects viability at an early stage is vital and helps provide the credibility and reputation econstruct has earned.s earne

econstruct has the skills and capability to deal with the technical processes of applying for planning permission and gaining building warrant approval ensuring that delays are reduced and allowing projects to start quicker on site.  econstruct can offer Planning and Building Standards Approval as a standalone service coupled with the Architectural Design Service or as part of the full package of Design and Build.

As part of the Scottish Governments review of the Planning System and the relaxation on the level of ‘permitted development’ we are now designing extensions that fall outwith the requirement to submit a planning application. This can dramatically speed up the approval process and get the build started earlier than anticpated. Our charted town planners can advise at the on set if a project could be designed in such a way as to not require planning approval.
