Design for your needs
Making changes to an existing property or developing a site for a new home can get you everything you need and prevent you from settling for the best-fit available. This is all achieved with the use of good design using the right team. An Architect begins with an informal chat to discuss your needs and establish the budget, and can advise on other constraints. Following a survey, designs are then developed to meet these, and to match your taste.
The Architect takes care of all the permissions required for the development. The appearance of the proposals is agreed with you, before submitting a planning application to get local authority approval. The Architect then produces information to demonstrate compliance with the relevant technical standards, in application for a building warrant.
Making it Happen
Going from design to construction is much less daunting with the help of a professional, ensuring that contractors have the information they need to calculate costs and to construct the proposals. The Architect helps you to decide on which contractor to use and maintains a presence during construction to keep you informed, advise on payment, and help the contractor with technical details to keep standards high.
