We will listen to your ideas, discuss and together develop initial designs for the project. Our architects will offer their suggestions/refinements and draw up floor plans and elevations for your approval and (if required) submit the planning application. We often work with interior, lighting and kitchen designers as well as audio visual specialists and their designs are produced and approved at this stage as well. We aim to have as many design decisions approved as possible before construction begins to ensure the smooth running of the project.
The architect's design is sent to to the structural engineers who will provide the structural design and calculations for the project. If necessary we will appoint a party wall surveyor to produce the party wall award(s).
Our project managers are all Prince2 Foundation and Practitioner qualified.
A detailed specification of works is produced along with the appropriate designs and construction drawings. Quotes are also obtained for all sanitary ware, kitchens, floor coverings, furniture etc. The project budget is produced and regularly updated throughout the build; it is shared live on Google sheets with the client to allow real time understanding. We have a completely transparent pricing system so that clients can make informed decisions and all trade discounts are passed on in full.
A detailed timeline is produced to show what is happening when and is used throughout the build to ensure that the project is progressing as it should; we communicate regularly with clients throughout to update on progress.
We project manage the build from start to finish, co-ordinating work on site and ensuring that all materials and items are ordered at the appropriate time. We have regular site meetings to ensure everything is running smoothly and that work is being carried out in accordance with the designs and specification. We also identify any potential problems, discuss with the relevant experts and put in place appropriate solutions.
We apply this method of considered design and managed implementation to any project we are involved with, whatever the size.
