Benjamin Allen’s reputation in the self-build market has been built on the quality and character of its self-build designs.
The most critical stage in the construction of a new home is the self-build design. Any new house must comply with planning and building regulation requirements, be located well within its plot, and most importantly, meet the needs of the client. Benjamin Allen have a professional and dedicated in house team of experienced and creative designers who are able to take a client’s brief through to gaining detailed planning permission, turning dreams into reality. You may be in the lucky position of already having detailed planning drawings. If that is the case we will work with your designs to turn them into a Benjamin Allen structural frame.
Alternatively we can take you through the whole design process, interpreting your initial outline thoughts and designs to create a home that meets all your requirements. All our planning drawings are produced by experienced architects/architectural technicians and are detailed to reflect the quality of the finished product. Our design team includes experienced designers who understand both architectural principles and the construction processes from start to finish. In close consultation with our clients our design team will produce full floor and elevation plans to be presented for submission to the planning authorities.
If required our architects/architectural technicians can supply full building regulation drawings and an access statement to be submitted with the application.
Benjamin Allen designers use the most sophisticated ‘state of the art’ software available providing our clients with both 2 dimensional drawings and a unique virtual reality 3D fly through of their home, if specified. The frame designer will be able to assist the client throughout the project to ensure the finished home meets their requirements. Our designer’s in-depth knowledge of the frame is valuable in both the fabrication and the erection processes and he may well help guide its progress through the workshop and go on site with the frame to assist in its erection.
Benjamin Allen is proud to be able to offer a complete self-build design service for your project. We have many clients who use our standard designs as a starting point for their site, although some customers have already been working with an architect or design technician and have plans already approved. In this case, we would be delighted to provide a timber frame structure to suit the approved scheme, no changes required.
