We cover all aspects of design work for new and refurbishment building projects. From an initial meeting to discuss your project, we will help to develop your brief to be the first step in the delivery of a successful project, and carry out a feasibility study when needed to look at options for more complex demanding projects. The architect will also carry out a measured and conditional survey of existing properties and can often provide conservation skills for those clients with historic buildings.
Advising if your project requires planning permission and producing all the relevant information for your application, and engaging with the planning authority on your behalf.
The architect is often the centre of a professional team of consultants who will develop projects with planning up to construction level. An important aspect of this is Building Regulation approval, and like planning permission it is the architect who will represent the client and provide the majority of the information.
Co-ordinating with fellow professionals the architect will be able to manage the construction stage if necessary for the client through project management as he has been with the project from the start. He will also remind the client of his responsibilities in all this.
Many of these services can be used by the self-builder client many of whom need the reassurance of bringing their project through official processes.
In all the architect is quite useful and we can use our expertise and abilities to help you in your endeavours regardless of the scale of your development. To review our abilities we offer the following and more:
