The CAD design team have been involved in architectural design for well over 70 years collectively, having worked in and around the Essex area, they take into account local character, permitted development and planning considerations as an integral part of the design process advising on feasibility of your chosen project and any restrictions or limitations that we feel may be relevant.

In addition to undertaking work for commercial clients, our experienced design team work largely designing layouts for new houses, designing new extensions and re-working existing layouts, to create flowing spaces which suit the requirements of our clients and bringing added value to their home.

The design team develop the information recorded during the measured survey, translating the ideas into a technical drawing indicating the proposals based on your initial Client Brief, demonstrating the the relationship of the proposed project with the surrounding area.  These drawings are typically produced in a 2D format providing sufficient information that can be used for planning applications, certificate of lawfulness applications and other similar applications. Contour Architectural Designs will generally submit all applications to the relevant Local Authorities on your behalf and will liaise with the Local Authority throughout the each part of the application process.
