Surveys To Visualisation


Town and country planning rules can vary between local authorities. Advertising consent is often needed for installing or changing a sign. Specialised knowledge is essential for conservation areas and listed buildings.

It all takes time and expertise. It can be a big drain on resources. So as part of our service, we can take care of handling the planning process for you.

This can include everything from preparing the application, dealing with council officials and supplying all the paperwork, visuals, OS maps and specifications to securing planning consent.


Some things are fine to do over the phone. Some things simply aren’t. Signage surveys are one of them.

Getting this critical part wrong can mean producing fascias that don’t fit into recesses, onto windows or even onto the building. Our aim is a perfect fit every time, eliminating room for error.

That’s why we always insist on our experienced surveyors going to the site to see the building structure and take away any risk. Drawing on their expert knowledge, they’ll ensure that any foundations and all the fixings are right - and that every sign is a perfect fit and the right balance with the rest of the building.



Will the signage meet the client’s brief and the design company’s expectations? And what will it really look like when it’s produced, installed and in place?

It’s not always easy to imagine. So first, we listen. Then we translate ideas into workable mechanical designs. And then our in-house design team creates professional 3D drawings that can easily be appreciated, understood, reviewed and refined.
