PLANS SUBMISSIONS - WHY US?
We have a dedicated division, which handles all Local Authority Submissions through to plans approvals, and all required Local Authority inspections for the issuance of required compliance certificates and the Occupation Certificate.
* All work done in-house. We do not employ any outside services.s.
CLIENT OWN DESIGNS AND LOCAL AUTHORITY PROCESSES NOT A PROBLEM!
Quite often clients have their own design team, (be it in-house or external) and require Local Authority approval; but the design team does not have the required registration with the required governing body and the plans that will not be accepted for approval.
We offer a service to clients whereby we receive the DWG files, finish the designs into local authority approval standards, correct and complete all required documentation and finalise the designs onto our templates while signing off the required on behalf of the client.
The plans then follow the normal approval processes.
BY-LAW it is illegal for any registered architectural professional to just sign off work which was not done by them and charge for such a service.
THE FRAUD AND CORRUPTION TRAP
Approval processes within the Local Authorities all have to run their course.
When people claim (plans runners or other) that they can have your plans approved in a week, bear in mind that you indirectly are paying towards paying somebody within the local authority "to do their Job"; whether these people call it a "Consulting Fee" or not "you are paying a Bribe".
ArciTek refuses to pay any so-called "Consulting Fee", you will run the legal process.
In the event of anybody "paying a Fee", even if on your behalf, you are supporting Corruption and be legally complicit in Crime.
Do not ask us to make a plan to fast track your processes within any Governmental Agency. We have been known to terminate our relationship with clients asking that.
