·   Planning Applications – We prepare planning applications for a variety of projects. These would include extensions and alterations, renovations, one-off dwellings, apartment blocks, commercial, industrial, agricultural. We have a high success rate with our submissions of these applications. This is due to working closely with the planning authority so that the proposal complies fully with the development plan and all other regulations as well as talking the client’s needs into the design. 

·   Site Characterisation Testing – As part of a planning application for a one-off dwellinghouse or where a septic tank system is proposed a Site Characterisation Test or Percolation Test must be carried out. This is carried out by experienced and highly trained staff.

·   BER Certificates – We can provide both provisional and full BER certificates. These certificates are carried out by one of the first registered SEI assessors.

From the 1 st of January 2009 a BER certificate will be required for all existing buildings offered for sale or rent. To allow a BER certificate to be prepared please provide us with a full set of documents to include drawings, site plan, specifications and planning permission if applicable. Also required is BER Technical Specification document which can be printed off and completed.
