Crosby-based Jakesville Studios was founded in 2011 by Architect Gavyn Lloyd.  Jakesville Studios combines a wide range of specific individual skills with many years of Architectural experience to offer a wide range of architectural services.


About Jakesville Studios

Jakesville Studios© specialise in the design and planning of house extensions, new build houses, loft conversions, rear / side extensions  and internal alterations, combining creativity and design flair with practical, functional ideas to produce innovative solutions that maximise space and light.

Jakesville Studios© don’t just “draw plans” for you. We offer a personal Architect lead design service and true to our architectural education, we are firm believers that good design principles should be the starting point for any project.

Once we have established the brief we will work with you to ensure your visions and dreams are met in every detail. We have an unlimited design change service in which we will combine your ideas with our expertise to develop a scheme you are happy with. 

Not only will you receive a customised design, but we will work with you to ensure your design gets through the relevant approval processes.


Concept & Feasibility

Jakesville Studios offers a complete design service aimed at getting the best out of your ideas. We offer a full Concept and feasibility service to develop you ideas and maximise the design. 

The Feasibility, or Concept, stage is the first development stage undertaken to determine the reasons and benefits for undertaking a project.

The design outputs from this stage are in the form of sketch plans, elevations, sections,  and rendered 3D models developed in outline to demonstrating that the project is feasible, and identify how the project should be structured in order to maximise the designs benefits.

During this stage we work with you to finalise the most viable and suitable option to take forward. Once agreed the models and plans produced then role into the planning or building control package and form the base of the drawings. 

Fees for our Concept and Feasibility Studies are based on the size and scope of works involved with your project. We are happy to discuss all aspects of the project prior to providing a quotation. If you have a scheme that requires Building Regulations Approval then contact us.

 

 


Planning Applications

Before you start any major building work, you should always check with your local planning authority if you need planning permission. Whether your development needs permission or is depends on a number of factors:

  • The kind of building work you are doing
  • The details of your building work
  • The scale of your building work 
  • The location of your property

Jakesville Studios© has the skills and experience needed to guide you through the planning maze to obtain the relevant approval to get your project off the ground.

We provide a wide range of services, from planning applications, appeals and strategic initiatives for private sector clients, to assisting local planning authorities with relevant information.

Whatever your needs, well tailor our advice to suit your particular requirements.

Fees for our Planning Application packages are based on the size and scope of works involved with your project. We are happy to discuss all aspects of the project prior to providing a quotation. If you have a scheme that requires Building Regulations Approval then contact us.

Once you have your Planning Permission, what next?  Well, in most cases you will need to provide details as to how you intend to build your project. This means you will need to apply for Building Regulations Approval.

 


Building Control Submissions

Once you have your Planning Permission, what next? Well, in most cases you will need to provide details as to how you intend to build your project. This means you will need to apply for Building Regulations Approval.

The Building Regulations set standards for the design and construction of buildings, primarily to ensure the safety and health for people in or around those buildings, but also for energy conservation and access to and about buildings. Complying with Building Regulations is a separate matter from getting planning permission for your work.

Jakesville Studios© provides detailed drawings for Building Regulations for any size project including new dwellings, conservatories and extensions for your property.
 

We will discuss with you first of all the various options available in terms of methods of construction and what materials you can use to get the best out of your design. Your Building Regulations package will not only serve as a set of details to submit for approval, but they will also be used by your builder to construct your extension so they have a great deal of importance, and the need for them to be accurate is paramount.

Fees

Fees for our Building Regulation Packages are based on the size and scope of works involved with your project. We are happy to discuss all aspects of the project prior to providing a quotation. If you have a scheme that requires Building Regulations Approval then contact us.
