At GMA design, we undertake all aspects of the design process throughout Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire, first taking the initial thoughts and desires of the client and progressing the project through to obtaining the appropriate planning permission.

The process usually starts with a site meeting at the property or land, where we discuss the client’s requirements and create a wish list. We discuss how they would like to use the property, taking into consideration the neighbour’s, the surrounding area and environment.

To assist in the visualization of the project, we undertake sketch proposals (if required) to assist in further discussions.

Once agreed, 2D technical drawings are produced, illustrating the proposals so far, and discussed again until the client is fully satisfied with the design.

3D drawings are sometimes requested as this gives a true aspect of the finished project in relationship to its surroundings & landscape.

Once the plans have been agreed with the client, they are then submitted for planning approval.
