FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

In order to assign a design to an architect or architectural studio, you must complete a certain set of documents. One of the most important documents is the design visa or an excerpt from the current PUP. It is required by a completed form in the respective municipality and is issued by the chief or regional architect. In order to be issued a visa, you will need a copy of a notary deed, an up-to-date cadastral sketch of the property (can be obtained from the cadastre office), notarized consent of co-owners in case of co-ownership.
The design visa gives the architect a clear idea of the normative indicators - height of construction, type of construction, density of construction, intensity factor, percentage of landscaping, distances, building line, etc.
The architect will also need a tachymetric survey of the property, which is done by a surveyor. This is an electronic drawing that indicates the real boundaries of the property, the displacement of the terrain, existing buildings, shafts, wells, trees and more.
The design visa and the tachymetric photograph are needed by the architect to start work on the conceptual design.

To start construction, you need an approved design that includes various design parts and documents:
1. Copy of title deed.
2. Current cadastral sketch.
3. Design visa, coordinated with the operating companies (Energy and Water and Sewerage).
4. Preliminary contracts with the operating companies (Energy and Water and Sewerage).
5. Project documentation from investment projects.
The project documentation for the different categories of sites is different. For a single-family house, for example, projects are needed in the part Architecture, part Constructions, part Geodesy, part El. installations, part Plumbing, part Fire safety, part Landscaping, part HVAC, Energy Efficiency Report, geological report.
All this is entered in the municipality and if the projects and documents are in order, you will be issued a building permit. The building permit has a statute of limitations - you must start construction within 3 years, you must have completed the rough construction within 5 years. If this deadline is not met, it can be re-certified, but only once.

The design is divided into several phases: conceptual design phase, technical design phase and working design phase. The conceptual phase is conceptual in nature. It explores the possibilities of investment intention related to construction. The vision and volumes of the building, the approximate square footage, the location of the building in the plot, the construction materials, the functional solution, the area of the premises, the height of the floors, etc. are determined.
The technical design specifies and complements all design solutions and issues of the conceptual design. Situational solution, distributions of all floors with applied furniture and specific details are presented, all sizes and elevations, roof lines, facades with used materials, sections with applied heights, etc. are depicted. The technical architectural design is an integral part of the documents required for the issuance of a building permit.
The working design largely overlaps with the technical design, but it can be said that it is much more detailed and with more details that can serve as a direct assignment for bidding and production.
A technical project is required to issue a building permit.

Quality 3D visualization gives you the opportunity to look into the future - to get acquainted in detail with the final result of your project, even before the start of construction and / or finishing work.
Through the visualizations from different angles you can feel the atmosphere of the future project, to choose the right colors and materials, to check how the new project fits into the existing environment and infrastructure.
Architectural visualization is not required for the issuance of a building permit.
However, it is an excellent tool for a stylish and professional presentation of your projects. It also saves you those extra financial costs that result from experimenting with different materials and wasting time talking to the wrong sales representatives.

Monblan Design employs designers and architects with full design qualifications, issued by the Chamber of Architects in Bulgaria. This legal capacity allows us to design buildings of any type without restrictions on height and area. We can design residential, industrial and public buildings with monolithic, metal, wooden or mixed construction.

With a current design visa (excerpt from the current PUP) and the presence of a tachymetric photo, you can start designing the conceptual phase, which, depending on the size of the site, number of floors and complexity, can take between 10 and 30 working days.
After approval of the conceptual phase, you can proceed to the technical architectural design, which takes between 2 weeks and a month. After coordination of the architecture part with the Constructive one, architectural substrates are submitted to the other specialties - El, Vik, Fire safety, HVAC and others.
When all specialists complete the projects in their specialties, 3 folders are printed, containing the necessary information for issuing a building permit - drawings, explanatory notes, certificates of competency, insurance. This takes another four to five weeks. Thus, within two or three months, all the necessary projects for issuing a building permit can be prepared.
