Architectural services to minimise your risk and maximise your return
After an initial assessment to understand what is and isn’t possible on your project, we usually move on to the design stage where creative design meets the requirements of planning conditions and restrictions. Throughout this process, we will continuously check back to your design brief, and assess, adapt and refine it into a feasible project.
As an architecture practice with unmatched success rates, we use a proven planning permission preparation system that incorporates safeguards for many of the pitfalls and failings of typical planning application submissions.
Our rigorously tested 6-step proven planning system allows us to specialise in crafting creative planning application strategies for residential developments with sensitive planning conditions and restrictions.
Even if your site is in a significantly constrained urban setting, a conservation area, a listed building or a Green Belt, we will help you get your planning permission approved.
Over the years, we have secured planning permission for unprecedented and quite exceptional projects, and seen amazing results in the projects of dozens of national house builders, seasoned property developers, first-time investors and homeowners.
Depending on the complexity of your project, we may recommend erring on the side of caution and arranging a comprehensive feasibility assessment or pre-application prior to submitting your planning application.
When your planning application has been approved, we will move onto the technical design stage where your vision will be transformed into something that’s ready to build. We will help you design simple, feasible and cost-effective structural solutions, with highly accurate building regulations drawings, structural calculations and specifications for your Building Regulations application.
In this step, we will also put all of the pieces together from your full set of tender and construction drawings, your full specifications detailing all materials, finishes, fixtures and fittings through to your kitchen design and your bathroom design. At the end of this process, we will invite builders to tender.
We will send a 3D computer model of your project for you to explore on your phone, tablet or computer that will give you a vivid idea of how the space will look and feel, so that you can be sure that’s what’s been designed is exactly what you want. If you want to go from frustrated, confused and uncertain to satisfied, confident and clear, then our service is for you.
Please note: Regardless of whether we were your architects for Stage 1, we are happy to guide your project through Stages 2 and/or 3. Do get in touch to find out more.
Once we have the tender quotes from builders, we will move onto contract administration. We will assess all of the builders, double-checking they have the right skills, that their previous work is excellent, that their health and safety record is spotless, their insurance is up-to-date and that they are the right fit for your project. We then shortlist two or three. We will then invite the builders and you to our office to go over their quotes together in an interview. From here, we will select one builder to award the contract.
During the construction, we will carry out periodic site visits and continuously monitor and evaluate your construction to make sure that the building works meet your needs and aspirations. Think how reassuring it will be to know that your architect is guaranteeing effective management and health and safety coordination, solving building work challenges and approving milestone payments for you.
Construction work can feel chaotic and uncertain, but we are here to change that and give you the remarkable project you want and deserve. Based on years of practical experience with builders, the proven steps we’ve set up and the hands-on construction inspection approach we’ve developed, we will help you avoid any possible issues that may arise onsite. That way, you can build with a minimum of stress, complete your project on time and avoid budget blowouts.
