Plans for new houses are the most challenging type of design for a residential designer today.

New House Designs and Floor Plans

Increasingly stringent codes and requirements have been introduced recently relating to the new building’s thermal efficiency and environmental sustainability.


New build designs need to realises a reduction of CO2 output during their life by incorporating solar energy capture systems for hot water and power generation.


The requirement list is increasing with time but planning departments are becoming more familiar with their implementation. One should expect  the process for granting of permission for a new build to be longer than that of an extension to an existing property.
