Careful planning brings the expected results. It is worth investing in hiring a qualified designer at the very beginning of the project. The main designer is responsible for the overall design work.

It is recommended to be in touch with the building supervision well in advance before applying a building permit. Together with the help of a qualified designer and the building supervision you ensure that the project progresses to the right direction.
