Professional Drawing Partners in the North West

If you’re a contractor, builder, or other tradesperson, you already know how quickly the local planning or building control department can put the brakes on a new construction project. Whether it’s a new build, a house extension, or a dormer loft conversion, all it takes is the wrong kind of technical drawing or a poorly filled-in submission and you and your clients are back to square one.

That’s where Plans 2 Extend can help.


Experienced drawing partners

Between us, we have decades of experience in the building trade, specifically in the design, drawing, and planning stages. We are reliable partners, delivering high-quality, error-free drawings on time, every time. In the same way that your existing partners can trust you to deliver a first-class build, you can depend on us to look after your clients’ interests from the very start by getting your planning approved and your drawings ready to build.

Here’s how we do it:

Approved building plans

Planning Approval

However good a contractor you are, planning permission can pass or fail based on your knowledge of the system more than the quality of your ideas. We have extensive experience in the field and offer all our partners our approval guarantee for all our drawing work. Should they fail to pass for any reason, we will revise and resubmit them at our own cost.

Time Guarantee

We know how frustrating it can be not being able to start work. We guarantee to complete your first drafts no later than 28 days from our initial survey, meaning the project is ready to go at the earliest opportunity.

Builders Assistance

Our assistance doesn’t end with planning approval. We also liaise with building control officers to ensure a hands-free approval process for you from start to finish. We continue to help once work has begun, offering on-site assistance for you and your team.

What Plans 2 Extend Can Do For You

As professional, experienced drawing partners, we offer end-to-end solutions to all builders and contractors that we work with. These are just some of our most popular services:


This step is where we work out the cost of surveying, measuring, and drawing your existing property. We need to do this so we know what we're starting with for your new plans. Our Time Guarantee ensures your first draft will be with you within 28 working days of survey.


The next step is getting your plans approved by the local authority and we know what councils are looking for in planning submissions. We offer guaranteed planning approval on every project we take on.

Building Control

Building Control is the technical part of the process. Structural Engineers will run all of the structural calculations, to make sure your new extension/conversion is safe & sturdy. Once we receive the structural reports, we will produce the technical drawings and get these approved by Building Control
