Hey guys, I'm hoping some-one can recommend a great architect. I'd like to apply to Bromley for planning permission to add an extension to my property that sits in a conservation area but don't know of any local architects. Cheers!

I used an architect that lived just outside the M25, but worked at a big architecture firm near Oxford Street. He charges £500 to do the plans, but you will have to pay for the councils planning permission fee and building control fee. Send me a message if you interested in finding out his details.

I know of one who has recently set up on his own and lives in Farquhar Road. Message me if you want the details.

You should search the RIBA's web site. www.architecture.com

You can pop in a post code and type of work you want doing.

You don't need an architect for a simple extension, especially if you know exactly what you want. We are using Steve Palmer, a chartered surveyor who many VNers will remember used to contribute to this forum. He is very thorough and efficient and we are currently awaiting tenders from our selected builders!

This guy below may be of help. I couldn't work out how to attach his post so I copied and pasted it.



Hi All,

I am an Interior architect who provides a service drawing plans and elevations for homeowner's who might want to convert their lofts or extensions. These drawings would then be submitted for planning permission.

Once approved I would then deal with building regulations and structural elements of the project.

I am competitively priced and would happily work with any local architects/builders who might require additional help where this is concerned.

Does anybody have any contacts in this field who might require assistance?

Does anyone have any additional recommendations of architects they have used? I'm looking for someone to work on a project starting this summer. Contact details would be appreciated.

Still do when I have time, but I am rushed off my feet.

He is very thorough and efficient


Thanks for the plug and the compliment. I am sure I have said this in other posts, but if you are looking for a cheap service try elsewhere. I (and my firm) aim to provide a good service for a fair price...and a good service does not mean just drawing what the client wants. It means giving the client good advice on the myriad of risks and issues involved in getting the necessary statutory consents, technical matters, contractual issues and the like. So that you don't end up like this http://www.virtualno.......ost&p=34263

By and large a Chartered Building Surveyor is probably of more value on small projects than an Architect, since we have a broader skill set. There are plenty of Chartered Building Surveyors in the area too.

Incidentally, if any Sylvester or any other forum users who have used my services want to recommend me can I ask that you start a new thread using the heading "Surveyor".

Lets hope we see your quotes soon. :)

There are three existing topics for recommendations for surveyors...
Surveyor
Surveyor and Solicitor
Freehold Valuation and Purchase

If you would like to make a recommendation I would suggest using the first topic only.

Hi,

Just wondered if anyone knew of a good local firm of architects?

We are planning to have a kitchen extension built on the back of our victorian terrace and need help with the whole process and good builders too!

Thanks

If you need an architect to plan your extension, conversion - or even new house, I guess - I would like to recommend Tony Brohn at Studio B3 Architects. They are a small practice in Herne Hill. Tony is disabled, a wheelchair user. That's not a reason to use them, just the way it is. Not a reason not to use them either. They designed our dining extension/new kitchen and supervised the build. There are photos on their website www.studiob3.co.uk
