We offer you a full range of architectural services, from concept through to completion. A brief explanation of each stage and what we bring to the table, is listed below. If you would like more information, feel free to contact us.

Concept

Using sketches, models and visualisations, we take your ideas and develop them into a cohesive brief or sketch scheme.

Sustainable Design

At both concept and technical design stage, we can advise on how to improve the sustainability of your development from small changes that can improve running costs and create a more comfortable environment to Passivhaus standard design. Click here to find out more about Passivhaus.

Design Development

No point having a good idea if you don't know ho to build it! We bring our extensive technical knowledge to every step of the process to make sure you not only have a development that looks great but will stand up to the scrutiny of fellow consultants, planners and specialists.

Planning

Most projects need planning permission - we not only have a great knowledge of the planning process but also the policies and guides both nationally and locally to give your scheme the best possible chance of success.

Technical

There are a number of levels of technical detail production, depending on the size and complexity of the work. One size doesn't fit all, but we always apply experience, enthusiasm and diligence to make sure the information we provide you is compliant, comprehensive and complete.

 

Tendering

We see the benefits of a comprehensive tender process in gaining the best possible outcome for the project -that's not just about price-point but bringing together a comprehensive suite of documents, a relevant contract and of course a competent contractor!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Contract Administration

Along-side site attendance where we make sure the builder complies with Regulations and the design specification, we;re also adept at running the contract for you. This offers the best possible continuity between the design team, the contractor and most importantly, the costs.

Project Management

Contractor's are great at building and managing the site, but sometimes the client needs somebody to manage the design team and make sure the project runs smoothly as a whole. We apply the same level of professionalism, enthusiasm, skill and knowledge to all aspect of our work so why wouldn't you trust us to PM your project too? 

Sectors

We have experience in a wide variety of small-scale commercial projects including:

  • residential

  • office conversions

  • retail

  • social housing

  • student accommodation

  • new-build offices

  • bars

  • schools

  • apartments

  • restaurants

  • garden centres

  • mixed use schemes

  • gallery extensions

  • listed buildings

  • conservation areas

Masterplanning

We have a wealth of experience in master-planning sites: from one or two houses to whole developments; from early-door feasibility sketches to planning compliant schemes and detailed construction layouts.

We don't just produce pretty pictures, we ensure that every scheme is underpinned by a knowledge and experience of planning, development and economic constraints that affect how a brief is compiled. In fact, we like nothing more than to take a site and work it into a coherent design that not only meets the planners' expectations but exceeds the clients - it's what we're good at!

Renovation

We have worked on older properties of all ages, shapes and sizes - from Grade II Listed Building to cow sheds! Creating chic one off houses, apartments for developers, barn conversions for owners, and restoring old to new. 

 

We always take a pragmatic approach to each project, underpinned by an understanding of the heritage behind the building. These sorts of buildings are always packed full of character and we look to emphasize and compliment this with the designs we do.

Budget is always a key factor in any renovation project and we explore a wide rage of options before helping you to pick the right one. From there we look to maximise the opportunities and minimize the unknown to come up with a building you'll be proud to have put time and effort into developing!
