Party Wall Notice Applications
Neighbours need to be informed in a regulated way if building work near or on your shared property boundary, or ‘party wall’, is to be carried out in England and Wales.
Noel Isherwood Architects can undertake Party Wall Notice Applications. We may recommend input from specialist Party Wall Surveyors in some circumstances.
Development appraisals assist developers in quickly identifying the development value of a site, land or existing buildings that are sought to be developed or redeveloped. Residual land or valuation involves valuing land with development potential through residual land calculations.
Noel Isherwood Architects can development appraisals revealing residual valuation in association with property and land valuation specialists.
Viability assessments are financial appraisals that describe the amount of profit a developer can expect to make on a particular project. They are needed to assess the quantum of affordable houses required for any particular development.
Noel Isherwood Architects can undertake site-level viability assessments when needed. We may recommend input from specialist viability assessors in some circumstances.
Project status reports
Project status reports present an executive overview, of milestones and deliverables (in terms of time and cost), open issues, risks and design changes and scheduled and completed tasks. They are useful throughout the design and construction process, on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis, depending on the scale and complexity of the project.
Noel Isherwood Architects can prepare project status reports. We recommend input from a Quantity Surveyor for the financial overview and construction cost plan documentation.
Landscape surveys are required where the presence of existing hard or soft landscaping (including planting layouts as applicable) need to be defined. They can be a planning requirement.
Noel Isherwood Architects can perform minor landscape surveys in-house. We recommend input from landscape survey specialists where extensive landscape survey data is required.
Arboricultural surveys are required where tree survey information is necessary. It can be a planning requirement to consider the age, health and potential growth of a tree/trees in a designated area. These, or arboricultural impact assessments, are generally requested by local councils when applying for planning permission to see how a tree might interfere with a development, or vice-versa.
Noel Isherwood Architects can perform minor arboricultural surveys in-house. We recommend input from arboricultural survey specialists where detailed arboricultural survey data is required.
A range of other surveys, assessments and statements may also be needed to fulfil planning obligations, such as:
- Archaeological Survey,
- Hydrological/Drainage Assessment,
- Topographical Surveys,
- Ecological surveys
- Environmental Impact statements
We recommend input from specialists where any of these are required. In other instances we can liaise with other specialists to achieve particular environmental requirements, such as:
- Energy modelling
- PassivHaus Certification
- BREEAM Assessment
- LEED Certification
