WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU

I provide Architectural Services specialising in domestic extensions, renovations, refurbishments, loft conversions, garage conversions and new build projects. I produce construction drawings for both Planning and Building Control and manage the application process on your behalf.

Based in Newquay I am ideally located to cover the whole of the Cornwall. My initial site visit to discuss your proposal is free and will be followed up with a written quotation.

Using computer aided design (CAD), I will work with you to ensure your requirements are captured and incorporated into the design. The drawings will be prepared ensuring clear interpretation by Planning, Building Control, contractors and you.

Liaising with Planning and Building Control throughout the application process, I will also obtain quotations from Structural Engineers and other external Consultants, as and when required and appoint them on your behalf (additional fees may apply).

About Me

MY EXPERIENCE

Living and growing up in Newquay and with over 20 years’ experience in the construction and property maintenance sector, I started in the early 1990’s as an Architectural Technician with The National Trust.  There, I prepared drawings for projects ranging from new farm buildings to drawings supporting Listed Building applications for repair/renovation works. This continued during vacations from Cornwall College and The University of the West of England, Bristol.

In 1998 I joined the Building and Design department of the well-respected firm of Chartered Surveyors, Stratton & Holborow.  There I continued as an Architectural Technician working on projects including new domestic dwellings, extensions, attic conversions, barn conversions, new agricultural buildings, office refurbishments and Listed Building renovation works.

It was whilst working for Stratton & Holborow in 2003 that I became an Associate member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) (this was held until 2012).

In 2004 I moved into Facilities Management as part the Ministry of Defences’ Regional Prime Contract. There I was responsible for ensuring that the maintenance contractor carried out their day to day duties in accordance with the contract as well as ensuring major maintenance tasks were planned in. I also captured requirements for new works from end users, managing budgets to ensure operational outputs continued to be met. In 2013 I successfully gained full Chartered membership of the Chartered Institute of Building.  It was in late 2014 that I came full circle and established Simon Foster Architectural Services.

SOME RECENT PROJECTS

Testimonials

“Simon created a superb extension design for us. His attention to detail was first rate. We highly recommend him.”

MR & MRS RAYNER
“Simon Foster Architectural Services drew the plans for our extension. The plans he produced complied with all current building regulations and made the process of having the planning granted, quotes given and the extension built by Dune Construction, a straightforward process. I would not hesitate in recommending Simon to produce drawings for any similar projects.”
MR & MRS EDMONDS

“Simon provided us with the necessary drawings for our new stables planning application. He met with us and produced the drawings in the fast timescale that was required. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him or using his services again in the future.”
