Techniplan & NIHE Grant Aided Schemes

Techniplan have a long established history exceeding 12 years working with the NIHE throughout Northern Ireland in the preparation of Architectural Plans for Grant Aided Schemes and will work on your behalf directly with NIHE and in the case of Disabled Adaption’s, your Occupational Therapist to prepare design layouts and working drawings for your grant aided schemes.

During our experience working with Grant Aided Schemes we have come to realise another often overlooked point.  That point is, when all is said and done, irrespective of the grant requirements, the property we are working on is your home and it is for this reason that we place a great importance on creating designs that not only meet grant requirements but also meet your own personal requirements to ensure any works to your property are not just an addition or extension to your house but more appropriately an addition to you home.

We can also offer general advice on the Grants Process.  All Architectural fees paid in relation to Grant Aided Schemes are refundable under the Terms of the Grant and we always aim to work under this allowance to ensure any expense to you is a minimum.

Techniplan realise that the Grants Process can be daunting and it is for this reason that we not only offer the standard Architectural Service to meet NIHE requirements but we also offer at no extra cost an ongoing consultancy service to help you deal with other non architectural aspects of the Grants Process including obtaining contractor estimates, liaising with your solicitor and filling out the appropriate application forms from NIHE.  As part of this Advice service and our on going commitment for customer satisfaction we also operate a no cost out of hour’s service to allow you to get advice when you really need it and to let you discuss queries and concerns at a time that suits you.

Our Service Includes:

- No Cost or Obligation initial Site Meeting/Survey to discuss your requirements and the possible design integration

- Fixed Pricing (Including all ongoing plan amendments as and when requested by NIHE/Occupational Therapist)

- Full Site survey

- Initial Sketch Plans for Submission to NIHE for assessment.

- Working Drawings after NIHE approval is received for Sketch Plans

- Submission of all required statutory applications (Including ongoing amendments as requested).

- Re-submission of all Statutory Decision Notices to NIHE to complete Grants File

- Ongoing Grants Advice Assistance

- Out of hours Service

We realise that the any formal process of re-designing your property can be daunting and if you have any queries regarding the Grants Process or have a Schedule of Works and do not know what to do next please do not hesitate to call Paul on 02890586963 for no obligation advice.
