At the beginning of the planning process, after the planning programme has been drawn up, we create a Concept Plan According to the planning contract, we draw up 2-3 markedly different outlines or concepts, from which you can easily select the one you find the most suitable.
First of all, development outline plans are drawn up for the plot, which take into consideration the orientation and the environmental features as well as the development indicators and the requirements of the authorities.
The purpose of the outline plan is to establish:
Submittal of the Building Permit documentation is frequently preceded by a townscape opinion procedure, the conditions of which are set down in the local building regulations. The opinion procedure enables the mayor to ensure that the buildings constructed in the settlement fit in with the local townscape.
The survey includes the recording of the current geometry of the building. This may become necessary for various reasons, such as the refurbishment or extension of an existing building or historic building, but it may also be due to the now frequently occurring need for the construction of a 3D computer model of an existing building that includes the plans from every specialist field.
As a result, the degree of detail in the documentation may vary a great deal, but in most cases it includes ground plans, façade drawings, cross-sections as well as photo documentation recording the existing condition. In addition to “traditional” measuring methods (measuring tape, theodolite), we now also use the technology of the 21st century like, for example, laser distance measurement, photogrammetry, orthophotographs, laser scanners, based on which even 3D computer building models can be created.
Apart from recording the spatial dimensions, it may also be important to record the condition of the existing building. Condition surveys usually include a survey of the supporting structure (statics), the wood material and the building’s structures, for example, in the case of damp and mould.
According to Government Decree No. 176/2008 (VI.30.) on the certification of the energy characteristics of buildings, it is necessary to obtain an energy certificate in the following cases:
In possession of the Concept Plan and the concrete ideas, our planner checks the plans with the competent construction authorities and the specialist authorities, and maintains continuous communication and collaborates with the competent authorities during the planning process.
A basic condition of starting the planning process is the signing of a design contract which sets down, among other things, the deadlines, the data provision obligations, the designer’s fee, i.e. the rights and obligations of both parties.
Geotechnikai Drawing up a geotechnical expert opinion
Not a compulsory element of the Building Permit Plan, however, it is worth performing a soil mechanics survey before the planning is started. This helps us determine the load-bearing capacity of the soil, the type of foundation to be selected and the height of groundwater.
Content of the Building Permit Plan
The precise content of the construction permit plan is specified in Decree No. 37/2007 (XII. 13.) of the Ministry of Local Governments and Regional Development.
The plan documentation is handed over to you as a paper-based document; however, it must be submitted to the authorities electronically via the so-called ÉTDR system.
Of course, we are able to carry out this technical task for you.
In case of a family house, the content is as follows:
Specialist authority consultations documented with memoranda and reports
Service provider and authority preliminary permits
statistics data sheet
official general plan that must be obtained from the competent Land Registry
In the case of a building, the tender plan serves the purpose of you being able to select the best construction contractor, while in possession of the construction permit plans.
This plan is more detailed than the construction permit plan, but not as elaborated as the construction plan. An important new element as compared to the previous planning phase is the bill of quantities, which contains precise names of items, amounts and numbers in connection with all the materials, work processes and technologies to be built into the house:
bill of quantities,
The following contents are drawn up on the basis of the Building Permit Plan, elaborated in more detail:
Government Decree No. 191/2009 (IX.15.) deals with this in detail. In this item of legislation you can read that if the house remains under 300 m2 and three storeys, etc., i.e. under a prescribed size, then, strictly speaking, a construction plan is not necessary.
The content of the Constuction Plan
statics work with precise calculations
building engineering work
building electrics work
garden plan, environment adjustment, external work
drive, road connection plan 1:50
bill of quantities
After the construction is completed, the precise documentation of the finished building is compiled in order for the building to be put into use, which documentation is also submitted to the Developer. This, in practice, is a Building Permit Plan, the basis of which is the documentation from each specialist field provided and created by the Construction Contractor and handed over to the Architect.
“The building information model (BIM) is the physical and functional representation of the facility. The BIM model is a common information source facilitating responsible decision-making, which follows the entire lifetime of the facility, from conception to demolition.”
This, in fact, is a 3-dimensional building model that may contain the plans for all the specialist fields and each element may be given the most varied of detailed characteristics and information. Depending on its degree of detail, the model may be used for a great variety of purposes, starting from construction coordination (e.g. revealing sensitive details, geometrical conflicts, surfaces, precise calculation of amounts of materials), and for almost any purpose during utilisation and operation of a building.
