How We Work
We work closely with clients, using an options based approach, in order to find the optimum design solution.
The design process is organised into stages based on the RIBA Plan of Work. There is no obligation for clients to commit to full services at the start of a project.
Understanding the project objectives, the size, the budget and scope of services. We will provide planning advice and potential risk factors. We will provide a fee proposal for architectural services and advise of any other costs and planning fees.
We will prepare analysis and design options for the layout and overall appearance of the project. The selected option will be developed in more detail and will include an outline structural scheme, building service and furniture / kitchen layouts.
If required, a planning application will be prepared and submitted to the local authority. Depending on the complexity of the project, this may require consultation with stakeholders and coordination with other consultants. The project will be costed.
Preparation of technical design to include all architectural, structural, building services information and specification. We can manage the tender process and advise on the appointment of a contractor and type of building contract
Regular site inspections to ensure works a carried out correctly. We offer continued design services for any issues which may arise on site. We can also administrate the building contract between the client and main contractor.
Final inspections, snagging and defect rectification. The project will be handed over and the building contract concluded. We offer 'as-built' drawings and post occupancy evaluation if required.
