"Carol designed our 2 storey extension. She was very friendly and accommodating throughout. Her enthusiasm and energy towards the project made the process easy and exciting for us. She really took on board what we wanted, and created great designs."        

Jennie & Richard

."Carol worked with me and my family to help create a functional and inclusive space for our disabled son.

Carol listened to what it was we envisioned our home to be, she offered her expert knowledge and helped us to refine our plans. Carol worked alongside other agencies such as occupational housing adaptions to ensure we met all the requirements needed for a fully wheelchair accessible home. We would be more than happy recommending Carol to friends and family or use her services for future projects."


Andrea & Tim

"Carol is an engaging and enthusiastic person to work with. She came up with a design that both suited our needs and contained interesting architectural elements which elevated it beyond the ordinary. What impressed me most was how much effort Carol put into making sure her modern design complemented the existing Victorian structure."

I am always happy to meet you on site to discuss your design needs and concepts.​ Having secured relevant site information I provide a detailed fee letter. This sets out my Architectural Design services and  required Local Authority and Statutory Authority consents.

My appointment is secured on my receipt of this fee letter, signed. 

Project feasibility is key to the design solution. l work with you to explore and interpret your wishes

and needs, to agree the  design brief and to set out the true viability of ‘the building works’ to

your home. This design stage examines ‘permitted development rights’, Planning options,

Consultant appointments and Statutory Authority compliances. Consideration is always

given to garden amenity spaces/neighbouring communities.​ Before submission of

Local Authority applications, a costings package is offered.​ Regardless of project scale,

technical design, with an attention to detail, is key to good construction execution.


This input starts on day one.


Valuable input from Engineers, Surveyors and Assessors is also available. ​High-quality

drawings and documentation supports every design project. AutoCAD 2D drawings aid

the design and detailing of subsequent consent applications. Thoughtfully laid out and easy-

to-read detailed specification packages have a significant and beneficial effect on the projects

design.HINDOVER is involved in.  All statutory consents including Planning and Building Regulation

applications, Party Wall Act agreements, CDM Act requirements and Local Water Authority regulations can be applied for.  

We can all work together to guide you, the homeowner, through all the stages of your construction project.
