Having established the necessary background information, we are able to progress schemes to the Feasibility Stage, where we develop the project brief to produce an appropriate solution whilst also determining the requirement for any further information.
Our team use the latest ALLPLAN CAD software to create both 2D and 3D designs, which take the form of drawings and can be presented to our Clients in hard copy and digital format. Using our specialist rendering software we are able to create realistic images, video sequence fly-rounds and walk-throughs to present our schemes in a format that can be preferable and easier to visualise.
At this stage, our team would typically produce:
• Concepts Schemes
• Feasibility Schemes
During the process of developing a Feasibility Study we are able to determine whether there is any further specialist documentation likely to be required to support a Planning Application. Where such information is considered likely to be required, we will liaise with our Client and can assist in the appointment and co-ordination of suitable specialist external Consultants to carry out the following:
• Transport Statements
• External Lighting Reports
• Acoustic (Sound) Reports
• Flood Risk Assessments
• Flood Modelling
• Sustainable Drainage Schemes
• Landscape Designs
Seldom do we find that all of the above works will be required in relation to a specific project, however, it is not usual for at least some of these elements to be required to support a Planning Application, particularly on larger projects or those in sensitive locations.

What our clients say...
We have been working with Niell and his team at SRA in redesigning an existing planning passed house design. We have found them to be highly efficient, offering good choice of recommendations and proposals and very easy and pleasant to work with. The brief had to take place within a short period of time and the team were very accommodating with this, especially in difficult Covid times. I would highly recommend using SRA for future plans.
Jennifer, Residential Client
I have worked with quite a few architectural practices over the years, I can honestly say SRA are in the top draw category of design companies. Their designs and drawings are of a really high standard. They are thorough and methodical. Their specifications leave little to doubt which means you can precisely quote for what you are being asked to build. […] Plus they are nice people, professional and easy to work for.
SRA Architecture have made so much difference – we now have six parking/pull-in spaces with our own filter lane taking the school traffic away from the lane, leaving it free for the residents and through traffic including emergency vehicles.
Clare Dawson, School Business Manager
SRA have designed new houses and building alterations on a number of projects we have tendered for and worked on over the past 20 years or so. Their plans and specifications are consistently clear and thorough and the architectural work in the construction phase has been excellent. I have found them to be one of the leading practices we have worked with throughout this time.
Niell provided me one of the most professional services I have received. The quality of service was outstanding, Niell answered the phone every time and answered any questions I had the same day whether by email or phone. The plot I was looking at was also of a beautiful design. I would confidently recommend anyone to use SRA Architecture.
Carl, Residential Client
SRA Architecture worked for us on two different occasions & projects, a small one and a bigger scale project. They were advising, helpful, great at planning, very knowledgeable and always kept us updated. I would definitely recommend!
