Amazing service

I think you are doing a fantastic service, we were looking for pre-plans as we are selling some land.
What a fabulous price, and such beautiful houses to choose from.
Its amazing what you have done for us, it was one massive headache and the weight you have took off our shoulders is enormous.
Should we decide to go further and build our own house instead of selling which if we get planning permission my husband would consider, we will definitely come back to you for building advice and more in-depth plans.

Sample review

As someone who regularly submits building regulations applications, I was interested to see exactly what house plans had to offer. As a one off specification the documents are perfect. The problem may come when using them constantly and the regulations get updated then a newer version would have to be purchased every time. But on a current single submission this would be great.

Thank you for your feedback, Mr. Helps. We take on board your point with regard to regular users of our specification documents. Would a 'lifetime access' version of the specification, which gave you the chance to download the latest copy whenever it is updated, be an option that would be of interest?

good service

i received exactly what i asked for

Thank you for your review Raymond, hope we can be of further assistance in the future!

Sample looks good

I only downloaded a free sample of the building regs notes and they looked pretty good from what I could see. I have no doubt I will purchase the full version in the near future when I have a project next come up or possibly before hand.

Thanks for the feedback Steve, hope we can be of service again soon!

Good quality service

Good quality service with up to date information. Working for myself this is a good secondary source of information to use and add to my existing specifications

It was a good base

It was a good base to start but a bit out of date and a few things missing

Good morning David, thank you for your feedback on our specification template. It was updated in January 2022 so we are disappointed to hear that you felt it was out of date. I have contacted you directly to discuss further, we are always keen to improve the products and services we offer so your thoughts would be very welcome.

I needed info

I needed information for a course I was doing and this helped me to no end!

JT Lawrenson

Expensive for a 4side download. Not enough measurements , room sizes etc.

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback.

We do try to explain clearly what the pre-application pack includes, both by way of the written description and the visual example shown on the product page. It obviously does not go into as much detail as the full planning drawings, but in our experience it provides more than enough information for pre-application advice to be obtained from your local authority.

I'm sorry that your expectations were not met on this occasion. We will take on board your suggestion that, although we show the m2 area of each room, we could perhaps also include the dimensions of each room as we do on the product page.

In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected] or via the phone number or LiveChat facility on our website if you would like to discuss further.

These plans provide the perfect

These plans provide the perfect starting point for planning applications.

Jack Raftree

Very useful plans

Benjamin Abbott
Comprehensive and worthwhile.

A very comprehensive specification that should cover all areas of concern as governed by various Local Authorities and Building Control regarding small scale residential building. With various methods of construction noted, while understandably not being able to make provision for the limitless variations possible, it nonetheless provides a solid basis from which specifications can be altered or added. A very helpful and worthwhile resource at reasonable cost.

Ewan Kerr
Really poor service

Really poor service. Avoid

Hi Ewan, our records show that you downloaded a free sample of one of our technical specifications. Can you elaborate on what prompted you to leave us such a poor review? We've never been left a bad review for a free sample before, so I'm just curious. Look forward to hearing from you.
