Calling all self build developers! Did you know Houseplansdirect also offer bespoke ‘Developer Packages’?
If you’re a self build developer leading a multi-unit scheme, or looking to offer multiple plots with planning permission for sale, talk to us about the services we can offer.
In addition to the extensive range of house designs offered for individual builds, we also offer semi-detached and terraced house plans for either private or housing association projects.
So what are the benefits for self build developers?
A wide-ranging and versatile portfolio of designs. The cost of employing an architect to design an entire scheme of self build homes will usually equate to around 10% of the overall build cost. Our existing range of detached, semi-detached and terraced homes can be adapted to meet your requirements at a fraction of the cost. What’s more, our house plans can be brought to life using any build method you wish – timber frame, SIPs or traditional bricks-and-mortar – and are therefore suitable for any kind of development.
A wealth of technical expertise and advice at your fingertips. Our designers have over forty years’ experience in house building, and have encountered most local authority objections in their time, so we can advise on the best way to approach any planning applications to give you the best opportunity to succeed. Building control requirements are also becoming ever more stringent, so we can help you understand the latest energy efficiency guidelines, provide SAP calculations, and much more.
Independent knowledge of suppliers within the industry. We supply design services to several of the UK’s most prominent timber frame and SIPs manufacturers and understand their product ranges, so can offer completely impartial, no-obligation advice on which system would suit your project best. Each method has its benefits, mainly in terms of cost, speed of erection and build quality – we can give you the guidance you need to make an informed decision on which is best for you.
Complete flexibility of design. If you wanted your scheme to comprise a range of homes of differing sizes but with a common aesthetic theme, we can adapt any of the designs shown on our site to suit. Simply look at the floorplans to determine which layouts suit your needs the best, and then give us a design brief (covering, for example, the wall finishes, roof finishes, window types etc.) and we can amend our designs to meet your requirements and/or those of the local planning authority. The external appearance of any of our designs can be completely transformed however you wish.
