Our Resi Dashboard allows our customers to project manage their build from one easy to use place. Its features include…
- Instant messaging to our designers
- Upload and store key documents
- Submit design reviews
- Finance assistance
- Find suppliers for your project
- Planning updates
To name just a few!
Before your consultation, you’ll be given access to your own Dashboard. Here you’ll be able to fill out a brief of your project, giving you a glimpse of how easy our platform is to use, as you tell us the ins and outs of your home. What’s more, this questionnaire will help our team customise your session.
One of the most common questions our team gets is… how much is this going to cost?
No surprise, making sure you have the right budget is a vital step for any project. At Resi, our consultations aim to not only tell you how much our own services will cost but how much you can expect to pay every stage of your journey.
Get to grips with timelines
Alongside your budget, working out how long your project will take is also a key consideration for most homeowners.
While many know to factor in planning, the true extent this, and other admin matters can take, might come as a surprise. For instance, did you know planning takes a minimum of 8 weeks? Or that, should you need a party wall agreement, that could delay you by two or more months?
It’s these time considerations that our team will be able to prepare you, as well as offer advice on avoiding any unwanted delays.
Get a basic understanding of planning policy
And on the note of planning, don’t forget this stage varies from home to home.
- Planning permission
- Permitted development rights
- The larger home extension scheme
There are a number of different planning options, and in order to build legally, you’ll need to make sure you manage the one you apply for properly - otherwise you could be faced with some hefty fines.
At Resi, we handle the planning stage on our customers’ behalf. Not only preparing the necessary architectural drawings but packing them up and submitting them too. By having our in-house planning team by your side, you’ll have the best possible chance of nabbing first-time approval.
What’s more, you can get a taste of our expertise as our team to advise on possible planning options during your consultation.
Discover inspiration for your project
Remember that screen sharing we mentioned?
Well one of the benefits of using this handy feature is that it allows us to bring visuals to the discussion. Based on the taste preferences shown in your briefing questionnaire, we’ll put together some of the best inspiration we can find for your home.
