STEP 0. Finding top architects, planning consultants, and project managers in your area can be tough. Getting the right fee proposal can be equally daunting. That's why AGA Associates is your go-to for architecture and planning needs.

measured site

STEP 1. Our experienced designers will attend your property and take a comprehensive set of laser-accurate measurements and photographs. While there, we will have an in-depth discussion with you about the scope and possibilities of your project. These initial site surveys form the basis of our project designs.

scope of works 

STEP 2. We can create a full scope of work encompassing various architectural services, which can be used to keep track of your project from inception to completion. It breaks down your project into a step-by-step guide to ensure everything is completed correctly and in the right order.

initial design 

STEP 3. We will create a full set of existing and proposed plans, sections and elevations for your architectural design project. These are a set of architectural documentation that you can use for design options and planning purposes.


STEP 4. Our architectural services include the use of advanced 3D modelling software when creating your architectural drawings. This allows us to generate  renders of exactly how the finished design will look and affords you unparalleled appreciation of our work..


STEP 5. You may require further confidence that your quotes from other builders include absolutely everything you need. We can produce a tender document to complement our architectural design package for it. This includes a full bill of quantities to give you the confidence that no stone is left unturned when you receive a quotation.



STEP 6. Once we have secured all the required planning permissions, we undertake your building regulations drawings. This serves as a full set of instructions in both written and visual form as to how we expect your project to be built. These technical documents include architectural build ups, insulation specifications, minimum clearances and manufacturer information to name but a few.


STEP 7. In order to guarantee the success of a project, it is important to take the time to plan effectively. As part of our architectural design services, our in-house design team can create a full set of professional architectural drawings detailing every aspect of the build, allowing them to assess any potential improvements or highlight obvious issues before work has started.


STEP 8. The main reason for the creation of this documentation is to demonstrate to you, the client, that our teams have a clearly defined, feasible build concept that can be delivered successfully and perfectly meets your requirements. They also allow us to make amendments early in the project, adding or removing features whilst still in the design phase. Without the initial assessment of these documentation, it may be too late to make changes when the build has started – and this is definitely something we want to avoid as it can cause scheduling delays and additional expense.



STAGE 0. During the initial consultation phase, we will meet you in your home / at your office / or via online meeting and discuss your project needs and requirements. We will give you some initial design thoughts, outline our range of services and go through the anticipated timelines and

preliminary costs. This initial consultation will be free of charge via our 'Book Free Consultation' Link Below

survey and
initial design

STAGE 1. After you have agreed to our fee proposal, we will arrange to visit and carry out a measured survey of your premises. We will then prepare a draft presentation, showing you the different options regarding your project. This step may involve several meetings, during which the design evolves and is eventually agreed upon. We will provide you with a design option within approximately 20 working days of our site survey.


STAGE 2. Once you have agreed on the outline design, we will prepare planning documentation for submission to the appropriate planning authority. During this stage, and depending on the nature of your project, we may also prepare a draft presentation to enable you to visualise the outcome of your project. This process takes approximately 8 weeks, depending on the type of application.


STAGE 3. Once planning approval has been obtained, we will prepare your  Tender Package for our Tender Process. Our Project Delivery estimation team can now prepare the documents which make up your detailed project quotation. This pack will contain a full breakdown of the works we will undertake, itemised scheduling, and timelines.


STAGE 4. These include specifications of materials, details of construction build-ups and information regarding thicknesses and sizes. Essentially, the building regulations plans are a detailed set of instructions, depicting precisely how the project should be built.


STAGE  5. Once you have selected your contractor and a Building Contract has been formalised, we will review the works on-site, ensuring they are undertaken to the highest quality, within budget and on time. At the end of the works, we will help you obtain a certificate of completion from your local authority. Please note that this role is dependent on the type of Building Contract to be administered.
