3D Rendering

ACJ use the latest 3D modelling software to create photorealistic models of your new build home, extension or garden space. Make informed decisions.

See for yourself

Imagine being able to see not just the paper plans for your project, not just a 3D computer model of your build, but a photorealistic visualisation of your new home, extension or garden space, with your choice of finish, set in your desired location, ready for you to view from any angle.

Powerful architectural design technology

ACJ Design uses the latest computer modeling systems to create your vision. From the initial 2D plans we create 3D wireframe models, from there we render the projection, adding colour and textures to create a realistic 3D model.  We can even superimpose that model into an image of your plot, creating a powerful visualisation of your final result, meaning you can make informed choices about design features and finishes in advance of construction.

Inside and out

3D renders don’t just help you decide the exterior finish options for your project. We can also provide interior renders that will help you decide on layouts.  So you won’t sweat the small stuff once it’s too late, you get your sockets where you need them and make sure there’s a place for everything before anything gets placed.

Building Warrant Drawings

Building warrant applications made simple. Get it right first time with precision drawings from the expert architectural services team at ACJ Design.

Why do I need a building warrant?

In addition to planning permission, you will also need to apply for a building warrant from the local council before you can start building work on your home. While planning permission largely focuses on how the external structure of your home will look, to get a building warrant you will need to show that the design of your home (both inside and outside) will meet all the requirements of the latest domestic building regulations.

ACJ Design Simplifies Building Warrant Applications

The architectural services team within ACJ Design are experienced in warrant applications. We provide accurate drawings of your plans and we can act as your agent and make the application on your behalf, smoothing the process and cutting out the jargon.

Professional, Precise and Thorough

ACJ Design not only designs your property, we specify and manufacture the timber frame systems that will be used in its construction.  This means we’re uniquely qualified to produce and maintain a coherent set of accurate, version controlled drawings for every step of the process.

Once planning approval is received ACJ Design can prepare and submit the application for building warrant approval based on detailed drawings agreed with yourself in advance of the submission.  We’ll then monitor and progress the application, and respond to any technical objections raised on your behalf, while keeping you fully informed at all times.

structurally  sound

Typically, an architect wouldn’t produce full structural designs until after warrant approval. ACJ Design does things differently.  We believe that proper planning is critical to a successful outcome. No-one wants to be faced with delays and costs caused by ill-fitting connections and services clashes halfway through their build, so we have processes in place to be sure we get it right first time.

All structural designs for site, construction and production are produced in conjunction with the architectural drawings used in warrant applications. You can be confident that the services, details and features specified therein have been precisely planned and will work first time in situ.
