Planning For Success

We are experts in providing new environments for modern living and evolving working styles.
We restore and remodel existing buildings in flexible and innovative ways with great attention to regional construction practices and respect of the heritage assets.
Since its inception in January 2000 FCA has successfully completed more than 100 projects. The majority of the projects carried out in the UK are located in Conservation Areas, 20 of them involved alterations to Listed Buildings.
We provide a comprehensive and dedicated service starting from outline proposals, design, planning permission, detailed design to site management and final completion. The briefs that we receive are always discussed closely with the clients and appraised in a wider planning and environmental context.

Over the years we have established a solid working relationship with local planners and have acquired valuable insights about planning policies and conservation groups, which have led to almost all our proposals being accepted and approved by local authorities and English Heritage.
We are pleased to hold a 97% rate of success for our applications for Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent.

Collaborative Expertise

We believe that the success of our projects is the result of successful collaborations. We work closely with specialist consultants, contractors and fabricators to achieve advanced technical solutions. The majority of our consultants have collaborated with us for more than a decade developing mutual trust and appreciation, shared design language and exacting standards.

Our consultants include structural engineers, project managers, planning supervisors, planning consultants, service engineers, landscaping architects, acoustic consultants and other specialist teams. Regardless of the size and scale of the brief we are able to co-ordinate a wide range of projects by pulling in the relevant people.
