Need ideas on how to make the most of your current residential or commercial property with an extension or conversion? Planning a self-build and worried about cost control? At lapd architects, we understand that taking on a building project can be daunting. And you're sure to have plenty of questions:

"What is permitted development?"
"Will I need planning permission?"
"How do building regulations work?"
"How much will it all cost?"

At lapd architects, we have the answers to all these questions and many more. Our expert team will advise and guide you through the different stages of your project, so that you are able to enjoy the design and build journey as well as your new living space.
