HOW WE WORK ON YOUR PROJECT

Below is a brief run through of how we can progress on your project. It is not set in stone and all projects are treated differently.

INITIAL MEETING AND CONCEPT

We start each project with a no-charge initial meeting with the client preferably at the property. This is an opportunity to discuss the project in detail and take a brief. It is also a good time to identify priorities, issues and budgets that are important. This meeting would then be followed up by a written Fee proposal to the client.

If appointed a concept scheme is created for discussion. This is primarily presented in the form of draft plans showing the general space planning, furniture. Along side design concepts images to  represent the overall architectural design principles.

PLANNING APPLICATIONS

If required as part of the project, we put together the drawings and any information necessary to make an application to the local authority for Planning or Certificate of Lawfulness (as appropriate for the project). If any specialist information/reports are needed as part of the application, we can recommend trusted companies and liase with them to produce this.

DETAILED DESIGN

The overall programme is drawn up and agreed with the contractor and client. Progress of the project is monitored on site on a regular basis and any issues arising are resolved in a timely and pragmatic manner in order to maintain quality and programme.

Once the concept design is agreed the project moves on to the Detailed design and Specification stage. This includes all the layouts to set out electrics, lighting heating and structure. Construction details and any built in joinery. We also draw up bathrooms and kitchens and any rooms requiring more detailed plans. Along side the drawings we can specify finishes and fitting for the client or help the client to choose their own.

A brief itemised scope of works is then,  put together for the builders to price against.
