Specialty sectors

Planning Applications Icon

Planning applications

At Spruce Architecture, we handle planning work both in-house and through specialised planning consultants. For simpler projects, our in-house team can manage the process; however, more complex projects may require a team of experts to gather the necessary information for successful applications. These may include specialties such as Planning, Transportation, Flood Risk, Ecology, and more.

Measured Surveys Icon

Measured surveys

The majority of the projects we undertake begin with a comprehensive survey of the existing building or land, known as a measured survey. This survey provides an accurate baseline for the project. Additionally, we also offer measured survey services for creating lease plans.

Building Regulations Icon

Building regulations

Obtaining Building Regulations approval is crucial for all projects, and at Spruce Architecture, we specialise in ensuring compliance with the Approved Building Regulation documents. We provide detailed drawings and specifications, which serve as a guide for the construction team, to ensure that all projects meet the necessary regulations.

Technical Detailing Icon

Technical detailing and specification

In addition to ensuring compliance with building regulations, some projects require a more detailed level of documentation. At Spruce Architecture, we can provide layout plans, setting out plans, and junction detailing to support the construction process. These plans provide a deeper understanding of the project’s design and construction elements beyond what is required for building regulations approval.

Feasibility Studies Icon

Feasibility studies

Navigating the planning and development process for a project can be daunting. Spruce Architecture can guide you through the process, help you understand the potential of your project, and work with you to produce a custom scheme that meets your specific needs.

Tender Contract Documents Icon

Tendering and contract administration

After a project is approved and ready to commence, the next step is to find a reliable contractor to carry out the work. Spruce Architecture can assist with this by preparing detailed construction tender documentation and analysing submitted prices, providing recommendations on the best contractor to select. Additionally, we can also provide contract administration services to oversee the building process, ensuring that the project is executed in compliance with the approved plans and specifications.

Happy clients

As a Planning Practice with an extensive and varied client base it is important for us to present plans to our clients, to the planning officers and to elected members on the planning committee that reflect accurately the proposal we are putting forward for discussion.

Presentation is critical in our profession and Phill Brady impresses all of us at Parker Dann with his attention to detail and presentational skills. We also find Phill quick to respond, competitive on his prices and above all very helpful and easy to work with.

I had been very apprehensive to start building work at our dental clinic which involved large changes to the structure and layout.

Phill, as my project manager, made it seem so easy though. He guided me through the whole process from planning to the last finishing details. He has been extremely helpful, gave me valuable advice all the time. Nothing seemed to be trouble for him. I highly recommend his service to anybody looking for a smooth architectural project on a small or large scale.
