Durrants are renowned for providing expert advice when buying or selling your home, but we are also behind many successful new build and renovation projects managed by our expert team at Durrants Building Consultancy.
Whether you have plans for a barn conversion, minor residential development or larger scale projects on existing land, we can advise you on the whole process including site appraisals and planning through to architectural design.
Jasmine Philpott, Planner at Durrants Building Consultancy, believes our in-house experience and capabilities make us the obvious choice when looking for a company to work with on your next project. She says: “Our key advantage is that we have architects in-house working alongside the two planners on the team. We all look at drawings together to give a fully cohesive approach to a project.
“Alongside that, the experience available within the team of both the market and the local area is second to none. We have the capability to advise and manage anything from a single house extension to promoting a site for a large-scale housing development.”
Jonny Rankin, Principal Planner adds: “I’ve worked for, and with, local authorities across East Anglia and our decades of experience in that area gives us an excellent working knowledge, so we work with Planners and Conservation Officers to achieve successful outcomes for clients.”
The team has experience in working on as many as 50 new dwellings in a large development but Durrants also often works with private individuals who are potentially looking to sell an existing piece of land or who need advice on how to convert an outbuilding.
It is the variety of different projects that Jasmine says makes her role exciting. “It sounds a bit like a cliché, but you really are changing people’s lives. If a client has had a barn in their garden for years and didn’t know what to do with it and you’re able to get them planning permission, it’s quite life changing. They can decide to create a holiday home to rent out or sell it and use the money as they wish.”
