Our Services

FEASIBILITY STUDIES

An architectural feasibility study helps clients assess the merit of a potential investment. We can explore various options for a particular site and advise on whether the idea is likely to gain planning permission. This will help you to decide if the project will be financially viable, and whether or not the investment as a whole is worth the time.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

Our passion is design and we specialise in a number of different types, from the traditional through to contemporary and sustainable, so we can help you with the architectural concepts, focussing on the key components and elements of design development which unify into a coherent and functional design which works for your unique lifestyle.

Computer Visualisations

Through the use of three-dimensional software such as Sketchup and BIM, our client’s dreams can be produced into a 3D visual model, providing a simple, easy to read, photo realistic concept. The model can then be laid out onto paper and produced for application submissions. These models are particularly helpful in assisting local planning authorities to understand the proposed design intent and often alleviate a majority of their typical concerns

FULL MEASURED SURVEY

A measured building survey is an accurate representation of your building showing all the structural elements and architectural features. Floor plans are essential to give an accurate representation of the building and this is backed up with elevations and cross sections presented as scaled survey drawings. Our technical capability in this area is second to none and we will only proceed to this level of detail, once you have engaged us to work on your project.

Planning Applications

Planning permission can transform the value of land and can create development opportunities. It can be a protracted experience fraught with uncertainty — but the potential gain usually outweighs the pain. We can assist with this and our advice can help you to avoid common costly mistakes in the process.

We have considerable experience of the planning process, Local Authorities and can advise clients on the formulation and submission of a range of different planning applications including Householder, Conservation, Listed Building, Outline to Full applications for both residential and commercial.

BUILDING REGULATIONS APPLICATIONS

We can prepare all drawings, specifications and, where necessary, calculations for structure, thermal, water consumption, and the like and submit for checking and approval on your behalf. In this way we help to avoid contravening the Building Regulations and thus avert potentially costly delays for your project.

WORKING DRAWINGS & DETAILING

Working drawings provide dimensioned, graphical information that can be used; by a contractor to construct the works, or by suppliers to fabricate components of the works or to assemble or install components. They may include architectural drawings, structural drawings, civil drawings, mechanical drawings, electrical drawings, and so on. Our working drawings would typically consist of two-dimensional orthogonal projections of the building or component they are describing, such as plans, sections and elevations. These are drawn to scale using Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. Three-dimensional or BIM working drawings can also be produced if required.

Sourcing External Consultants

We can help you find an external consultant to work on your project and solve any problems and implement the solutions in order to help resolve site-specific issues.

Onsite Assistance

As a practice we can assist and lead you fully through the construction process, from sourcing a trusted builder/contractor, to project management and administering the building contracts. The process would include:
