Making Plans was established in 2001 as a sole trader business and incorporated into the limited company 'Making Plans UK Limited' in 2008. It is a family business with over 30 years experience in the construction industry and architectural design with our own dedicated technicians, we ensure that you are a client known by name and not by project number. We recognise that when someone is working within your home, hopes, dreams and finances you want to be assured that you will be a priority. The team at Making Plans work to very high standards that will be evident in our service and plans so that even at the drawing stage you see your dream coming true in a very real way.
In 2011 we were nominated by the local authority building control LABC for the design and work undertaken on the new pavilion for Swarkstone Cricket Club. See testimonial page for more information. We are currently helping Willington to realise a more modern and larger village hall by providing free advice and drawings along with consultation with the local authority as it is a charity organisation.
As a company we can provide all types of building design and produce our own architectural plans using Drawing Express latest software using colour to compliment each project. We have many years experience in design and project managing various types of building contracts. Whilst producing architectural plans we consider the way each project will be built whether or not we will be involved in the construction process.
We offer free advice and consultation over the telephone and can also offer a free one hour consultation in our office or at your home or project address. This consultation is offered subject to availability and suitability during normal office hours which are Monday to Friday, 8:30 - 17:30
This sets us out as different to most architectural companies as our experience in construction has enabled us to offer a fully project managed service to build for our clients any type of project that is offered to us. We can recommend local builders that we have close working relationships with. including electrical, plumbing and specialist contractors. We can produce a tender for your works and project manage the chosen builder on your behalf. We have displayed some examples of work completed within our portfolio but the location and customer details have been omitted to ensure confidentiality.
Our clients are always left with a first class project and would be pleased to offer testimonials and referrals. By arrangement completed projects can also be viewed to give interested parties an indication of what we can achieve for them as well as the high standard of workmanship.
For more information on specific types of projects or if you cannot find what you are looking for please complete the enquiry form on the ‘Contact Us’ page. Your enquiry can either be filled out online or you can contact us via e-mail. During office hours you could also telephone.
The current climate has everyone thinking about what changes can be made with limited finances. We would love to help families and home owners to realise the potential in their homes. Let us show you how you can improve your home.
People are now looking more at what they have and how to improve it to make their family more comfortable. Instead of going down the For Sale route which can be costly with thousands of pounds paid out in fees and stamp duty.
Perhaps you need more space if your family is outgrowing your home so another room is required upstairs. You may need more living space downstairs. Maybe an elderly member of your family will have to live with you and you will need more space downstairs for sleeping arrangements also a wet room adapted for that purpose which maybe for disabled use. This could involve a single or two storey extension, loft conversion or garage conversion. Let Making Plans help you to find the solution to make your home work for you!
