Firstly it is an absolute must that we get to know you and your project. Ideally by meeting you at your property/site.  

From this meeting, we put together your wish list/brief and provide you with a detailed quotation. We love fixed fees in the majority of circumstances, so you know the costs upfront and won’t receive any unexpected bills from us.

We offer a flexible service and can be involved as much or as little as you need. Although we love being with you on the full journey seeing a project from start to finish.

GETTING TO KNOW YOU AND FEE PROPOSAL

Hopefully, you will bring us on board to bring your ideas to life. To begin we will visit your property/site to carry out a full measured survey of the property.

Once we have a scheme that you love we will then prepare the necessary drawings and documents required for a planning application.

 

This is the start of the formal process, we want this to be as stress-free as possible for you, so we can submit and manage this application on your behalf until a decision is issued.

PLANNING PERMISSION

When planning permission has been granted it’s time to move the project forward to the detailed design stage. This is where things start to get serious and where some of the big decisions are made.

This stage involves developing the design on a technical level, with the preparation of drawings for Building Control Approval. Again so as to take the pressure off you, we can submit and manage this application on your behalf until an approval is issued.

We will liaise with other specialist consultants such as Structural Engineers as required throughout this process.

DETAILED DESIGN

Now you have your complete design you will want to get things moving and your project built.

We can further help you through this stage to include preparation of tender documents, further details, selection/appointment of contractors.

We always recommend a contract being entered into with builders to protect your investment. We can act as contract Administrator to administrate the contract, through regular site visits to monitor the progress of work, valuations and final snagging at completion.
