Professional Plans Service helps speed up building approvals

A new professional plans service has been launched that will provide builders a cost effective solution to producing drawings for extensions.

Whether it’s for scheme, planning application or building regulations, the new service does away with the need to use an architect.

The latest offer from HBXL Professional Services, it’s perfect for building firms wanting a quick turnaround to help win a job or which want to outsource the plans to get it through planning with the minimum of hassle.

Much cheaper than an architect, the service works where one of the highly experienced construction specialists – most of whom have a background of running a building firm – will produce the required level of plans based on sketch floorplans and photographs supplied by the builder.

With no site visit required turnaround of the plans typically takes between seven to 10 days and means no delay in the project’s progress.


The professionalism of the plans will also help the builder either win the project or get it through planning or building regs in a straightforward manner.

Joanna Mulgrew, product director at HBXL said: “This is the perfect solution for builders who need professional plans in quick time and don’t want to fork out thousands of pounds employing an architect.

“It is simple to use, great value and gives complete peace of mind. It will allow builders to not only impress the client but get the project through what can sometimes seem like the arduous process of planning regulations.

“Another point to note is that because the team all have a building background means that the design will be practical and buildable!

“Users also get a dedicated building specialist who will work on the plans. If they’ve got any questions they’ll be in touch over the phone.”

Another bonus of this new service is that as well as the development of plans it can also help with Building Control. Partnered with Assure Building Control, an assessment of the completed plans can be carried out if required within seven days.

Plus HBXL Professional Services can also undertake the estimating, health & safety documentation and building contracts providing a one-stop-shop for time strapped builders looking to expand and improve profitability.

Price for Plans Service starts from £99. For further information on how the Plans Service could speed up your building approvals please call 0117 9167894 or drop us an email at
