Services

What we do

We offer a full range of architectural design services for homeowners, developers, commercial, heritage, and public sector clients.

Your architectural design experts

Full design service

You dream it, we draw it

Our detailed working drawings and written specifications bring your project to life. We work across all types of buildings from minor alterations to large scale developments. We will draw full elevations and floor plans as well as sections through the building. We focus on the detail, so builders know exactly what you want and can provide accurate quotes. KDR’s highly skilled team of architectural designers realise your vision, taking into account your budget, style, functionality and environmental considerations. We leave no stone unturned to ensure your design plans are exactly what you want and achievable within the scope of local governing policy.

Space planning

Space planning

Make the most of your space

From residential homes, to retail units, and industrial building developments, if you need help to achieve the optimum layout for your project and potentially a higher return on investments, we provide a space planning service that makes every square foot count.  Considered space planning can help reduce energy costs, improve functionality and productivity, and achieve a point of difference. Our team can sketch different layouts and explain all of the options available, so you can see what would work best to suit your needs.

We can plan space for (but not limited to):

  • Existing buildings
  • Landscaped areas
  • New production lines
  • Production equipment
  • Office fit out’s
  • Roads and footpaths
  • Service strips and car parking
Project Permissions

Planning permission and applications

Get the go-ahead

We submit outline working drawings or full planning applications for planning and building control approval to the applicable local authority department on your behalf. We continually monitor the district plans and keep up to date with the latest changes in local planning policy. We can also advise if you actually need planning permission, as some project won’t need it to go ahead. The planning process usually takes around eight weeks and building control approval about four weeks. These two processes can run together, so you should receive full approval to start work within eight weeks from submitting the drawings. We will keep you fully informed of the progress of your project throughout.

Project management

Project management

Your project in safe hands

We will administer the project management contract and manage your project through to the construction phase. Your dedicated project manager is your liaison between all trades involved including the architectural designer, builder, structural engineer, electrician, roofer and local authority. This saves you the time and hassle of dealing with each trade separately and ensures best practices are followed throughout. As with all projects, certain challenges may need to be overcome. Our project managers are very experienced and will handle any issues efficiently and effectively to stop matters escalating, ultimately saving you time and money.

Recommended tradesmen

If you don’t connect the right tradesmen for your building plans, designs and budgets can go out the window. We have a number of excellent tradesmen that we can recommend for your project.

Just ask!
