Now that you've found us, what steps should you take next?
Here at GPA, we understand the need to provide consumers with Professional Architectural advice, at minimal cost, so that you can arrive at an informed decision, prior to making a Planning Application.
If you are unsure whether you have an appropriate site, a building to replace/ convert then please,
CONTACT US to begin discussing the options available to you.
We offer all prospective clients a FREE CONSULTATION on each enquiry, which is normally sufficient to determine the merits of making an application. We work throughout the U.K. & cover all areas of N. Ireland with respect to this particular policy.
