Architecture & Surveying

We offer comprehensive and flexible services in building design and construction as well as land and building surveys. John Lea R.I.B.A. leads a team of highly experienced architectural technicians and surveyors

The Architectural Team works closely with the Planning Team ensuring that the Practice can deal with all aspects of a development proposal from initial concept, through any pre-application negotiations with the Local Planning Authority until approval. Following the grant of planning permission we are able to make applications for the discharge of any planning conditions imposed and prepare and handle applications for Building Regulation approval.


We work closely with our clients throughout the design process to provide imaginative solutions to meet the specific requirements of the project brief from feasibility and concept to detailed design.

Construction Management

From a full architectural service to minimal involvement our flexible approach allows a tailor-made service to suit the individual needs of our clients.

Contract Administration

As part of the full architectural service the Practice can prepare and administer Building Contracts between the client and contractor where the Practice would be involved in the day-to-day running and management of the project including cost and quality control and ensuring that the project is completed on time and to budget.

Building Regulations

We prepare construction information and submit Building Regulations applications on a wide range of projects and liaise with specialist consultants, including Structural Engineers and Energy Assessors. All applications are monitored throughout to approval.

Building and Land Surveys

Using the latest electronic surveying equipment we carry out land and building surveys for our clients as well as for other firms, including detailed interiors, buildings, land, quarries and lakes.
