Material and Construction Plans

What is a Material and Construction Plan?

A Material and Construction plan shows a top down view of a project, detailing which materials are to be used as part of a project and offering recommendations for the method of construction for each aspect.

Material and Construction Plans Example

Often used in conjunction with a planting plan, these plans provide a detailed breakdown of any materials required to complete a project – outlining the specific materials, the quantity of each material and the colour or type of material that is recommended to ensure a high quality finish.

As well as being required for planning applications, Materials and Construction plans can be used as specification documents for tenders – providing a standard construction method that external companies can use to price against when applying to complete the work. They can also act as a quality assurance document, allowing the project manager to assess and monitor the quality of the works when carried out.


How does it work?

Upon your initial enquiry regarding a Material and Construction plan, we will offer you any advice and guidance you may need to ensure that the plan meets all of the project requirements. We will then arrange for our consultants to meet with you on site to discuss the project in more detail, along with any specific requirements that are part of the planning application or tender process. Any measurements and photographs will be taken at this point, ensuring that the plan we put together is accurate and correct.

The Material and Construction plan will then be put together by our experienced team at our offices, with liaison with yourself throughout the process regarding any existing documentation or designs and to ensure that the plan is in line with your requirements throughout.

Upon completion of the Material and Construction plan, you will be issued with a digital pack in the form of a PDF containing the top down drawing and a detailed description of the recommended construction method for every aspect. This can be incorporated into your own documentation and can be tailored as a white label document if required.
