Planning Authority Applications
These are ubiquitously required, whether to apply for a new building permit, to apply for a compliance certificate following completion of works to enable application for water and electricity, to apply for minor modifications, to sanction an existing building or regularise the entire property against irregularities. Other applications also exist, for example to expedite the demolition of a dangerous structure. Cornerstone is able to help in all such cases and we offer services related to all Planning Authority applications including full and summary Planning Applications, DNOs, Compliance certificates, Minor Amendments, Sanctioning, Regularisations, Planning Control and Removal of Dangerous Structures.
As Project Managers we can act as specialist advisors, representing our Clients. Clients’ demands for Project Managers tend to vary considerably, therefore Cornerstone’s aim is to tailor the service provided to our clients’ demands. We will develop the service to be delivered through close consultation with clients so a scope of services can be produced.
There are a number of ways of managing projects, under diverse forms of contract, and Cornerstone have the ability to recommend and advise under each form.
We provide innovative design solutions for each project, whether it’s new construction, remodelling, renovation, an addition or a combination of these projects. Our designs reflect sustainable, leading-edge architecture that transcends form and function in every project we manage. We strive for timely and effective issue of design drawings and detailing.
In design terms we do not push any agenda, instead recognising quality wherever this exists, in the proportions of an elevation or the refinement of a detail. We are skilled at producing attractive, practical design solutions as well as presenting our work persuasively to all stakeholders including planning authority, local residents and of course our clients.
As individual engineers we have experience in domestic, retail, commercial, financial, educational and healthcare market sectors. This broad experience is rarely found within just one local consultancy.
We have worked with major clients including Methode Electronics, Co-Op Services, the Ministry of Energy and Water, Foundation for Medical Services, Foundation for Tomorrow’s schools together with other prominent clients in the private sector. A number of projects were for blue chip clients in the financial, retail and commercial sectors which required complex value engineered design solutions.
We have experience in designing and working with all major building materials including steel,
concrete, timber, and masonry on projects up to 60 million euros.
