Investments in property are often one of the largest financial commitments you’ll make – and when that commitment also includes building work, it can be doubly daunting.

Sensus recognise this, and we’re there for you at every stage, to make sure you get the home you deserve with the least possible trauma!

We specialise in residential design and are happy to become involved in any size of project from small extensions up to bespoke new-build houses.

We particularly enjoy working with self-builders, but if you prefer to sit back and let us manage your build, then that’s fine too! See our Design and Planning pages for more information on the services we offer, or contact us for your FREE initial consultation.


Sensus has extensive experience of commercial residential development, from initial feasibility and masterplanning, through the complexities of the Planning process, to delivery of working drawings and standard build specifications.

Through each stage, we never lose sight of your commercial objectives.

Our Directors’ past experience – over 25 years servicing the industry and including working at a senior level within some of the UK’s most successful developers – means that we know it’s about more than just delivering a Planning consent. Our objective is to work with you every step of the way, to gain maximum value from every development you undertake.

See our Design and Planning pages we offer to developers, or contact us to discuss how we can work together on your next project.


Sensus doesn’t stop at basic architectural services where self-builders are concerned. Our integrated Planning consultancy and our Directors’ background in all aspects of residential development mean that we can guide and support you through the entire process, if you wish – from plotfinding and dealing with the Planners, through to project managing your build on site.

We can provide tailored packages that give you as much or as little support as you wish, flexibly and adaptably throughout your project.


As a logical extension to our focus on Development Potential and Planning Gain, one of Sensus’ specialities is in providing architectural design and planning services to Estate Agencies.

Whether it is maximising the value of your vendors’ properties by gaining the necessary approvals to deliver planning gain, or delivering rapid-response design and planning solutions to prospective purchasers, turning a property that’s nearly-but-not-quite into one that’s their dream home, we’re here to help.

We recognise that in Estate Agency, you can’t afford to be delayed when there’s a sale in the offing, so we aim to provide the fastest possible response when Planning permission or technical feasibility of an extension or alteration is the difference between a sale and a fail.

We are happy to act either as a separate consultancy service, paying commission on income obtained via your agency, or presenting ourselves as your in-house resource to expand the scope of the services your business is able to offer in the most cost-effective way possible. Contact us to arrange a meeting to discuss how we can best serve you and your clients’needs.
