Concept design, planning, building regulations, specifications, construction detailing, contract adminstration and expert advice.
With experience in project management & the putting together of buildings we can offer solutions to projects to enable our clients ideas to become a reality. We can assist & look after our clients through the whole process of building buildings.
Good architecture is not about being extravagant or expensive, it is about responding to the needs of the occupant. A successful project will result in a building that you will enjoy life in; understanding these requirements is the first step and a significant slice of the brief is your budget!
- Building efficiency in the long-term
- Keep the form simple
- efficiency in your layout
- think ‘cost : quality : time’ in the design. Strong consideration of construction method and materials can greatly reduce overall costs but consider the indirect impact.
Our design process
As Architects we obtain planning permissions for home, business and land owners alike. We enjoy working closely with our clients designing refurbishments, extensions and new build projects in-line with their requirements.
The creative design process is our key to narrating any successful project and is the tool that we use to offer opportunities to our clients, sometimes surprising them with strategic options they would not even realise were possible.
Building performance & efficiencies
For a building to be truly sustainable it must be economically and functionally successful as well as achieving the goals of low environmental impact and low energy use, so the buildings and services are inherently efficient in their arrangement and pioneering the use of natural daylight in active spaces. Our integrated approach and enthusiasm in the field of environmental design allow us to guide our approach from an early stage of the project but have a positive impact over their environmental performance in its their lifetime, creating a better asset for both our clients and their building users.
If Energy Efficient and Eco Design are key drivers in your project, we would be able to assist you in understanding the options whether off-site manufacturing, low energy materials, renewable technology, high building performances in insulation techniques and air tightness.
How we get started...
The first thing to do is find out what you would like to achieve; we ask a short list of questions and listen!
We will work with you to develop your project brief and better understand your budget and key drivers before we go any further.
We will guide you through a whole range of processes - from coming up with an initial design, seeing the project through to planning and construction to completion.
We will develop solutions and propose ways to reduce costs whilst coming up with a design that meets your brief. We provide general pre-project advice and a written fixed fee quotation.
