What should I bring to my consultation?

The architect you book with will contact you to agree when and where your consultation will take place. Your architect will let you know if it would be beneficial to bring anything along. Here are some examples of things that your architect might talk to you about:

  • An Ordnance Survey ACE Map showing your property – This can be obtained from Land + Property Services, 7 Lanyon Place, Belfast BT1 3LP Or online at www.nidirect.gov.uk/OSNI
  • Photographs of the property and its surroundings.
  • Dimensions of the existing property if you’re considering building and extension.
  • Dimensions of a site if you’re considering a new build.
  • A list of accommodation that is required, for example, details such as number of occupants and the function of the particular rooms.
  • Images of similar properties that you admire.
  • An indication of your building cost budget.
