Property Refurbishment in Barnet, North London

There are many options available for anyone looking to create space or change the look of their home without the cost or scale of an extension.

Simple changes such as removing an internal wall or chimney breast can open up your property and provide extra room without invasive construction work.

Plus, here at Detailed Planning, we can suggest simple solutions that can make a huge difference, such as shifting a wall to create a new space or new windows to provide more natural light.

Internal alterations rarely require planning permission, but our expertise means we can advise you on any permits or agreements you need.

Established in 2011 we have been providing architectural services for all types of residential projects, working alongside homeowners, builders and developers. So, if you’re a homeowner looking to open up your home and create more room, or if you are a developer looking to maximise property potential, we will ensure your needs are met.

The service was first class and we were kept informed of all developments throughout the whole process. We word certainly recommend Detailed Planning Ltd to all our clients and we use them every time we need planning services.

Would definitely recommend for any detailed drawings required, we got them in late in the day to provide building regs drawings, were really efficient in completing within the required timescales and went into a lot of detail to make sure everything was right.

Great service, professional and efficient at meeting deadlines. Clear communication on the whole planning and building process. Very nice people to deal with.

Understanding Your Project Goals

When we begin, we’ll take time to understand your brief, you may also have ideas of how the end product will look. We’ll take this into consideration but also consider costs, planning constraints and buildability. There’s no point designing something that can’t be built!

Striving to Create Quality Spaces

Our number one goal is to create spaces that meet requirements and go beyond the expectations of our clients. We love to hear that our clients are enjoying their new home and this gives us the energy to go on.

Believe In Quality Design for Everyone

Good design should not be limited to some Architects only. We are here to provide excellent architectural environments to all, at a more realistic cost compared with some architect fees.

Pushing Technical Detail

Every project is unique and ensuring it is buildable should be considered from the outset. Should we provide technical drawings, we’ll make sure risks on site are reduced by considering all parts of your project. This should lead to overall cost savings and minimised delays.

High Planning Success Rate

We never take on a project where the principle of the development seems unlikely to be approved. During the design, we’ll use our knowledge and check planning policies to give your application the best chance of success. We have worked with many authorities and understand how planning applications are decided.

Flexible Design Approach

We are not fixed to one design style; therefore we can be used for realist extension design to ultra contemporary. We will listen to your brief and design a bespoke extension meeting your needs.

Our Process

1. Design

At Detailed Planning, we pride ourselves on our unique and trusted design services for internal layout changes. We begin every project with a comprehensive site visit to fully understand the space and its potential. We then take precise measurements to ensure accurate design and planning. Our clients are closely involved in the process, from initial design collaboration to revisions, and we are always open to clever suggestions to get the most out of the space. Our team of trained designers will guide you through the process, from initial concept to the final outcome, ensuring that you are completely satisfied with the end result. We are dedicated to creating functional, beautiful spaces that are tailored to your individual needs and style. Trust us to help you transform your space and make the most out of it.

2. Get Approved

At Detailed Planning, we are experts at obtaining the necessary approvals for internal layout changes, including planning approval and freeholder consent. We understand that navigating the complex process of obtaining planning consent can be daunting, which is why we’re here to help. If planning consent is required, we can increase your chances of obtaining it by acting as your agent throughout the process. However, it’s worth noting that not all internal changes require planning consent, so a planning phase may not be necessary. Our team of experts will assess your project and advise you on whether planning is required. We will work closely with you and help you achieve your desired outcome. Trust us to guide you through the approval process and make the transformation of your space a reality.

3. Technical

This is the stage where the detailed technical drawings are carried out by our design team. We understand the complex fire regulations that must be met for internal changes and will make sure that building control approves the design. We’ll liaise with other consultants such as engineers and suggest party wall surveyors to make sure that all necessary steps are taken before work can begin. Our team will provide extra detail in the drawings to ensure that your builder can construct the project with the quality it deserves. Remember, in order for a project to go according to plan, having a good, detailed set of drawings is crucial. It is important to keep in mind that internal changes have specific regulations and codes that must be met and we take the responsibility of ensuring that all safety measures are followed and the design is approved by the relevant authorities before the construction starts

4. Ready. Set. Go

At last! Your space is ready to take shape with the internal layout changes and renovation! This is all very exciting and you now have all the relevant drawings and approvals in hand. At this point of the project, we provide a continued support service to ensure that the construction process goes smoothly. You can reach out to us whenever you like for any questions or concerns that may arise. Our team is dedicated to providing you with the support you need to make the transformation of your space a reality. All that’s left to do now is to finalize the construction details with your builder and relax as we work to bring your vision to life.

Questions to Ask Your Designer

1. How much experience do you have?
Detailed Planning have completed hundreds of successful projects, from small extensions to large glazed modern extensions. We are up to date with planning and regulation policies to help avoid bumps in the process.
2. Have you worked within my local borough?
We’ve worked within every London Borough as well as the surrounding counties; this means we have excellent knowledge of what’s likely to be approved. Should we work further afield, we’ll make sure we’ll study the policies to determine if the development is feasibly, before proceeding.
3. Do you have liability insurance and a quality control process?
Our company has liability insurance of up to £1,000,000. To reduce risk, as well as using our depth of knowledge, we have a team to check others work prior to issue of any documents.
4. Will you manage all the pre-construction approvals?
The project will usually involve multiple approvals, not just planning consent. This will likely include, building control plan check approval, party wall agreements as well as structural calculations.
5. Will you assist with liaising with other consultants?

Yes, we will ensure that all the necessary consultants are instructed and are carrying out their duties. We discuss the project with them directly and make sure they have everything they need.
