Rod Atkins Architectural Design Services

Quality working drawings prepared for all your planning needs

About The Practice

The practice is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Rod is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of his business is referrals from other building trade professionals and satisfied customers.

From the initial design brief, Rod can either work from his client's exacting design/layout requirements or be left with a 'blank canvas' to create a design you will be delighted with. Even from this early stage Rod will be using his practical experience by thinking ahead to ensure the work proposed can practically and sensibly be built, and will comply with the Regulations. Usually an initial quick draft plan is created for his clients to see before the project is formally drawn up. It is of paramount importance to Rod to ensure that all his client needs are included within the plan scheme right from the start.

Included as part of the service, Rod will prepare and submit both Planning and Building Regulation applications, acting as your Agent throughout. Sometimes projects need to involve applications to The Environment Agency (consent to discharge to watercourses) and Anglian Water (building over or near sewers); Rod can also deal with such applications if needed.

It should be noted that Rod does not carry out any on-site supervision of building works nor can he issue 'Architect's Certificates'. The Building Control Authority will carry out a number of crucial on site Inspections and this is normally sufficient to safeguard a reasonable level of service from the contractor.

All Rod's clients receive both paper copies and PDF versions of the drawings which are crucial for tendering purposes and the contractors to construct from. Both Planning and Building Control Permissions are posted (or emailed where sent electronically) to Rod's clients the same day as received. Rod is proud of his prompt service he gives all his clients both with correspondence and phone conversations relating to their projects.

Rod would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best possible service.
