OUR ROLE

As architects we are qualified to provide a design service from initial feasibility through to the hand-over of the completed building on site. We can assist you in maximising the potential of a building or site through design (pre- or post-purchase), help you to develop a brief that clarifies your requirements and design a series of proposals tailored to your needs.

Should you require additional professional services we are able to draw on the experience of engineers, quantity surveyors, interior designers and lighting designers with whom we have worked in the past.

DESIGN SERVICES

We offer a full service running from initial consultation through preparation of sketch designs, applying for Planning Permission and Building Warrant, putting together a tender package and administering the contract on site. We represent you, the client, in all aspects of the process, regularly checking the quality of work and controlling payments to the contractor.

Should you not require the full service then we can adapt to your requirements, offering a basic Planning Application, Feasibility or Building Warrant as required. Please call to discuss your individual requirements - we can adapt our service to your needs.

SPECIALIST SERVICES

We have been able to assist clients with the following issues:

Retrospective Planning Permission – obtaining Planning and Listed Building Permission in some cases years after alterations have taken place.

Planning Objections – providing advice on material grounds for objection to proposals relating to neighbouring land or buildings.

Pre/Post-Purchase Advice – Review layout and potential for re-modelling of properties.

Solving Latent Construction Defects – Assessing problems with existing buildings and proposing through investigation a solution that we can then implement.

If your particular issue is not listed above please get in touch and we can discuss your particular requirements. If we cannot help you then we may well be able to direct you to someone who can.
