How IBS Works

In order to carry out your building work, you will need the best architects in Derby and the finest Derby builder available. This is where IBS come in.

When you call IBS, we will arrange for a Project Manager to drop in and see you to listen to your thoughts and intentions for your home improvement project.

One of our highly qualified Project Managers will come out to you for a free site visit in order to go over your requirements. Working together, you can create an outline of an approximate budget and draft a timeline.

When this is in place, a brief will be drawn up for two to three of the leading architects in Derby to give you a quotation. Once they are in, it is completely for you to decide the right architect to appoint for you. IBS will still be here to assist you, working hard on your behalf for the entire duration to ensure that all amendments are to be carried out to meet your requirements and to make sure that the project doesn’t start to fall behind schedule.

Once the drawings have all been agreed upon, IBS will ensure that your planning application is correctly submitted for approval. Whilst the application is being approved, IBS will draw up a tender then submit it to reputable trusted local Derby builders. IBS will organise and handle all of the site visits with prospective builders free of charge whilst monitoring the planning application. As always, with IBS, you will have full choice over which of the companies you choose to work with your project and you will agree any payment terms directly.

Once your planning permission is granted, we will obtain Building Control Approval via Derby City Council. We will also obtain all structural calculations on your behalf and make sure that all aspects of your project are approved and ready to commence with your building work.

Once you have appointed a builder, IBS will guide you on the best practises when working with your builder in order to ensure that your project runs smoothly.

At this stage, the building project will be completely in your hands and those of your chosen Derby builder and we at IBS will walk away from the project without taking a single penny.
