We can help create your perfect home
Your perfect home will be as unique as you are, but there are a few major, practical considerations everyone should deal with before they start choosing the wallpaper. Here we help you decide if you should renovate, convert, extend or start from scratch and build your own home.
When helping you to create your desired home, we offer practical advice and guidance to ensure that the end result is best suited to your requirements. We understand that our clients are individuals and therefore our service is flexible, adaptable and tailored to your needs.
There are several options and we can help you to choose what is best for you whilst ensuring that the work complies with building regulations and local planning requirements.
Who Are We
Design and Draughting Services are based in Wigan. We cover the North West, including Wigan, Bolton, Manchester, Preston, St Helens and Warrington.
We produce professional architectural plans and drawings for houseextensions, new builds, conversions and renovations. We also liaise with Local Authorities and submit your planning and building regulations applications for approval.
We pride ourselves on offering a friendly, reliable and professional service.
All of our work is carried out at a fixed price.
What We Do For You
If you are running out of space at home you have two choices, move or extend. A single storey rear extension with a loft conversion is a popular choice for terraced homes, but if space allows, semi-detached houses may benefit more from a two storey extension. But the trick is never to over extend your property, every road has its ‘ceiling price’ and if yours is out of keeping with its neighbours you may not recoup your investment when you eventually sell.

- Double storey extension
- Kitchen extension
- Loft extension
If your garage is only used as a junk store, ask yourself if it would be better used as habitable space. You will have to upgrade the structure to meet current Building Regulations covering energy efficiency, damp-proofing and ventilation. If the conversion involves building on top of the garage, the foundations will need to be checked to show they can take the extra load.

- Loft conversion
- Dormer loft extension
Remodelling is often the best solution if you need different living accommodation rather than extra living space. In normal circumstances, planning permission is not needed for this work. However, the work must comply with the Building Regulations if it involves alterations to the structure of the building or the drainage, for example removing a load-bearing wall.
- Knocking down internal walls
- Dividing rooms with partition walls
- Installing en-suite bathroom or downstairs cloakroom
Many people dream of building their own property. We can help this dream to become a reality by helping you to plan the work in minute detail, taking into account important factors, such as, location, design, requirements from local authorities, budget and choosing the right builder.

We will then arrange a time convenient to you for us to come and visit you.
This initial visit will consist of a free consultation where we will discuss your requirements and offer you suggestions and helpful advice.
We will provide you with a set price for us to carry out your requirements.
If you are satisfied and decide to proceed, we will survey the site while we are there or arrange another convenient time.
We will then produce drawings which should be completed in approximately 7 to 10 working days and return them to you for your approval.
What Happens Next?
When you are completely happy with the drawings, we will provide you with large format paper copies and electronic copies. You can use these to obtain quotes from builders.
If required, we will submit the drawings to the Local Authority for Planning Permission and Building Regulations approval on your behalf, along with the necessary forms. This means that you do not have to deal with any paperwork yourself.
We will deal with any matters which may arise relating to Planning Permission and Building Control which means that you will not have to deal with any problems.
We will advise you when written permission has been granted and you may then instruct your builder to carry out the work.
