At Impact Architecture we listen and engage in  professional working relationships with our clients, we work closely with them to ensure they receive the high standard of service they deserve. We are dedicated to providing them with a unique tailored experience involving them every step of the way, so we can fulfil all their expectations and requirements for their project from the initial consultation to its completion. Whether clients want to achieve a house refurbishment, extension, commercial development, outbuilding or new build, Impact Architecture will create a supported experience for each and every client working alongside a number of professional bodies including structural engineers and local authority to ensure they are delivered an enthusiastic, smooth running and successful project.




We can provide measured surveys and record drawings which are fully prepared on CAD systems and can include 3D visuals. These can include scaled drawings of existing buildings for fire plans and record drawings for legal purposes. We can include as much detail as required and provide a drawing tailored to suit your needs.



Our Architectural Designers pride themselves on creating designs that are not only sympathetic to their surroundings but also push the boundaries of new concepts in design. Our training and qualification’s have taught us to think out side the box and explore new ideas and innovative techniques. At Impact we provide the client with designs that they desire but also new ideas that add to this and suit the site, client or end user.



At Impact we work closely with the client and local planning authority to analyse the potential of a development site. These feasibility studies aim to uncover the strengths and weaknesses of a potential development or conversion.



Once we have established the design criteria of the site and the end users criteria we can then undertake sketch proposals that meet all of these requirements. With our extensive experience and training we often surprise clients with alternative designs that may have been overlooked or are unexpected solutions to the problems raised . As a Member of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists we have undertaken exams and interviews to prove our professionalism and expertise in the architectural industry.



Planning permission or planning consent is the permission required in order to be allowed to build on land, or change the use of land or buildings.

Each local planning authority has different policies and requirements which can often make a simple planning submission into a complex process. At Impact we have experience in many different types of planning applications from simple householder applications to listed building consent and more complicated full planning applications for commercial developments. We liaise with the planning authority directly on your behalf to obtain planning permission for your desired development. Our extensive experience also means we have a professional relationship with other parties involved in the planning process and knowledge of what each local planning authority may require as part of the process.



Building regulations approval is required for most building work in the UK. Building regulations are set out in approved documents that cover all aspects of construction from foundation depths to hygiene requirements.

Building regulations are statutory regulations that seek to ensure that the policies set out in the relevant approved documents are adhered to. At Impact we have experience in providing building regulations information, including detailed design, so the contractor has a clear and precise drawing or documents to build from. We pride ourselves in our technical ability to provide sleek and elegant designs which originate from the design detailing.



This is a process which obtains quotations from a number of contractors for the proposed work. The contractors are given a time scale to provide their quotation. This is an effective way of establishing value for money along with each contractors time scale for undertaking the works.

Once you have obtained planning and building regulations for your proposed venture we are able to submit documentation to contractors, on your behalf, in order to obtain quotations for the proposed works.



Impact Architecture can provide on site attendance to ensure that the works are undertaken in accordance with the drawings and current legislation. This offers the client a piece of mind that their dream build is being constructed to the highest standard.
