More information

Private Individuals

NGD offers a free initial consultation meeting to discuss your requirements and feasibility of the proposals, Nigel will undertake a survey and producing planning drawings for your approval. Once approved by yourself Nigel will make the planning application on your behalf to the Local Planning Authority.

Once approved Nigel will guide you through the rest of the planning process through to completion.

Commercial Work

NGD can offer competitive rates for surveys, production of planning and construction drawings, as well as steelwork fabrication drawings, mobile phone base stations and industrial buildings.

NGD is the preferred supplier for planning and construction drawings for SURE telecom (formerly Cable and Wireless) on the Channel Islands and Isle of man.

Planning Drawings and Application

Following a site survey NGD will produce a set of existing and proposed drawings for your comments and approval. Once approved location plans will be added and the Planning Application to your Local Planning Authority (LPA) will be made on your behalf.

The LPA have about 8 weeks to approve your application from time of registration and any changes that they require will be discussed with you prior to any drawings being revised and re-issued to them.

Building Regulations

Once planning has been approved, Building Regulation drawings can be produced and approved by Building Control. All works require Building Control Approval. The Building Regulation’s are a set of 14 Government approved documents that ensure all works are carried out to a safe and legal standard and follow the latest good practices set.


NGD will use either our own planning drawings or a 3rd party set of drawings to produce a detailed set of construction drawings that will satisfy building control and be sufficient for you to request quotes from builders. These drawings will also let your chosen builder undertake the construction work.

Note: If 3rd party planning drawings are used then a site survey will be required to ensure that they are a valid representation of the site and proposed works. Building regulation drawings will not show finishes within the room (i.e. paint colours, light fixings and position etc) unless priced for separately.

Structural Calculations

NGD work closely with a fully qualified, experienced charted structural engineer who will provide the necessary structural calculations for steel beam and timber sizes to be passed by Building Control, these will form part of the Building Regulation application.

SAP Calculations

The Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) is a measure of the energy efficiency of a property and is required for new building’s and conversions as well as some extensions where there is an excessive amount of glass to floor space. NGD uses a large well known company to undertake these calculations on your behalf (if required) and this also forms part of the Building Regulation application.
