Yes. The best way to make a start is to book a free consultation. This will allow us to thoroughly research your property, location and recent planning decisions before we sit down with you to discuss your project, ideas and aspirations.

We’re based in Mansfield but cover most of its surrounding areas, including:

  • Nottingham

A lot will depend on the scope of your project and what you’re looking to achieve. If it’s relatively simple and falls within permitted development, you won’t need to get planning permission, so can move from drawings to build quite quickly. If you need to go through planning and building control, this can take several weeks, depending on your project’s complexity. However, your project manager will take care of this side of things for you, from submitting your application to liaising with the planning authorities to guide things to a successful outcome.

Yes. We’ll assign a project manager at the start to oversee your project from start to finish and keep you informed at every step of the way. You can also keep track of progress by logging into our client portal. Here, you’ll find all the paperwork and documentation relating to your job.
