Therefore if you are looking to extend, convert or refurbish a barn in Sussex, Surrey or Kent LM Associates are able to provide the Architectural design services & the experience you will require to create your dream home or new offices. As an RIBA Chartered Architect & Planning Consultancy practice LM Associates are set-up to advise our clients on the best chances of obtaining planning consent. We can advise whether Planning permission is required or not and where planning permission is required the best design strategy to help gain the permissions you require.
In recent times planning laws have been relaxed, therefore it is not always a requirement to obtain planning permission for the conversion of an existing barn. We are up to date with planning legislation surrounding the conversion of agricultural buildings and can advise on the best way to gaining planning permission, building regulations and the next steps after all the relevant permissions are n place. However in all cases you will require building regulations approval. As part of the RIBA plan of works LM Associates offer this service as part of our design work & will happily submit building regulations applications on behalf of our clients, as an LABC Partner we can submit all our applications to our local authority meaning we deal with a single point of contact who we work with closely.
LM Associates also work closely with an external team of engineers, energy assessors, ecology & tree consultants, therefore we can easily obtain any expert advice as required by the local authorities this removes any unnecessary stress on our clients and allows LM Associates to work with consultants we know & trust. LM Associates also work closely with a number of building contractors that we know & trust & we would be happy to recommend such contractors in the event that you choose to work with LM Associates.
