N J Hodgson & Co Ltd Chartered Surveyors



Design and Project Management


Whether it be a new build project, extension of an existing building or a refurbishment scheme, we are able to provide a project design and delivery service tailored to suit your individual requirements.


We have the required expertise and knowledge to take your project from inception through to completion on site - within budget and on time. From initial concept design through to production of full working drawings for the purposes of obtaining Local Authority consents and construction thereafter, we can guide you through every step of the process.



With drawings produced on market leading 2D, 3D and BIM software packages and using bespoke detailed specifications, competitive tenders are able to be obtained to ensure that each project is delivered within budget and undertaken by building contractors who can demonstrate a proven track record of technical ability and safety competance.

Once works have started on site, we are able to provide regular site inspections to address any issues that may arise and to ensure that the required standards of workmanship are maintained. Site inspections can be arranged on a frequency to suit the client’s requirements. We can also undertake contract management duties and produce interim valuations of the works in progress to ensure that stage payments to the contractor accurately reflect the progress of the works undertaken.


Planning and Building Regulations


We offer a comprehensive range of planning and building consultancy services, available to all sectors of the market, including:


•Planning applications in either outline or detail for construction schemes or projects.

•Listed building and conservation area applications.

•Change of use applications.

•Full plans and building notice submissions under the Building Regulations.


Building Regulation approval is requested for the majority of construction projects before they commence.  This involves the preparation of detailed drawings which can be vetted and approved by Building Control and subsequently used in the construction process. We have a wealth of experience in preparing drawings and specifications for Building Regulation applications and through Continuing Professional Development and strong links with all Local Authority Building Regulations departments, we ensure that we are kept fully up to date with the constantly changing requirements to achieve full approvals.
