Our Process in a Nutshell
TerraPura Sustainable Homes uses building technology that allows for flexibility in the design and construction process.
Because TerraPura manufacture their own bespoke steel frame systems, any design considerations can be taken into account and realised.
Design, estimating, surveying and purchasing are based in our Head Offices and manufacturing facility at Trafalgar House in Newhaven.
In liaison with the main contractor, we design the most effective and efficient development for each project in accordance with BIM.
Upon acceptance by the Local Authority of the outline scheme, the designs are developed to full planning standards ready for the planning process.
We prepare our initial surveys and reports, develop drawings on this information and then provide final construction drawings using the latest Building information modelling (BIM).
Full supporting documentation including a Design & Access Statement, Planning Statement and other applicable reports can all be prepared if required, at an additional cost.
