Housing, Home and Domestic

Services Overview

House Extensions

A new house extension can dramatically increase and improve the value and 'feel' of a house. Gravica can help you by explaining which areas of the house can be extended and why - including areas under permitted development, what works best in a house extension and help develop the initial plans for you.
Following this we can then produce detailed drawings, specifications and schedules and, if required, apply for planning permission. We can also price the building works and monitor and manage the project for you - leaving you to enjoy the better parts of the build - such as picking out the colours!

House Plans

When planning some work, such as a house extension or property development, it helps to have some professional plans drawn up.
Plans will help you organize your works to make sure you get what you want, but they will also help when getting prices to have the work done – plans will ensure that all your builders’ prices are based on the same amount of work so you can compare them like for like. Good plans will also be essential for any planning applications where poor plans can often impair or slow the decision.
Gravica can measure the existing land or property accurately and produce professional, highly detailed plans for your proposed works. Our service is fast, accurate and competitively priced.

New Build Projects

For many people the opportunity to design and build their own home is a dream come true. The sense of satisfaction you get from creating and living in a home conceived just for you can be quite comforting.
It can be difficult to get started though and there are lots of things to consider before you embark on such a huge task. Layout, building regulations, structural design, drainage, ground conditions and the building work itself can all present a mamoth obsticle if you do not fully understand them.
Gravica has a lot of experience in this area and we can help as much or as little as you like to ensure you get your perfect home at a cost and in a time thats fair.

Housing Development

Gravica can help developers, Architects and Local Authorities in the planning and design of new housing developments.
We have expert knowledge of foundations in difficult ground conditions, drainage and SUDs schemes and Structural Design.

Planning Applications

Planning can be a daunting task. Some types of work do not require planning approval since they fall under the 'permitted development' catagory.
If planning is required Gravica can prepare all the neccessary documentation and deal direct with the planning authority to help secure, that often vital, planning approval.


Gravica can help developers, Architects and Local Authorities in the investigation,planning and design of drainage systems.
Drainage is one the key areas of infrastructure that we, as a society, rely on. If working correctly we never think about it - if, on the other hand, there is a probelm, then drainage can be a real headache. We have expert knowledge of drainage and SUDs schemes and we can help solve current flooding problems associated with poor drainage design.

We also have a vast knowledge of driveway improvement schemes, including material finishes and drainage.
