Architecture & Town Planning
We are the Architectural Design department of N Hillman & Sons Ltd and have been established in-house since June 2016. We work closely with the Contracting arm of the Company which ensures efficient production of Planning and Construction drawings. Delivery time scales are significantly reduced due to this service being in-house.
Hillmans work within various sectors of the Building Industry but specialise in providing and full Design & Build service in the following:
- New build self-contained apartments in various block sizes from large multi-storey to small singe blocks.
- New build large detached single family dwellings.
- New build terraced housing.
- New buld commercial units with residential properties over.
- Conversions and extensions to existing properties to create new self-contained apartments.
- Conversions and extensions to existing properties to increase and enhance existing commercial properties.
Our work is generally concentrated in the South East London area but more specifically in:
We carry out a full design service from the inception of a project through to completion. Working closely with stake holders and end users from the beginning to understand their needs, programme and budget – to name a few – and providing advice based on our significant experience and expertise built up over many years, allows us to manage and meet the expectations of our Clients from the very beginning.
Following the design process, we then prepare drawings, statements and reports which together form the Planning Application package. Whilst preparing the Planning information due care and attention is given to Building Control compliance and the buildability of any project to ensure no delays during the construction phase. We have a very good established working relationship with the London Boroughs listed above and have a good success rate with submitted Planning Applications.
Whether we are involved at the design stage or engaged following a successful Planning Application, we provide a comprehensive Construction drawing package to ensure Building Control compliance and full details from which to build. As noted previously this in-house is a significant advantage on project where Hillman are carrying out the construction.
In addition to the Planning and Building Regulations services we also provide the following:
