Tell Us About Your Project
We understand that our clients need clarity about the cost and timescales of their new build project, so our work is underpinned by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) plan of work framework to add certainty to a simple six-stage process:
1) Initial Consultation
At the start of your new house build project, we’ll meet with you to discuss your objectives, budget, and timelines, and provide a quote for our services.
3) Detailed Design
Our team will produce detailed technical drawings, schedules, and specifications to ensure the build meets regulatory standards and your expectations.
Throughout the construction phase, we’ll inspect work to ensure compliance with technical drawings, schedules, and specifications. We’ll work with contractors to address any issues or changes required.
2) Design & Planning
We’ll create a design concept for your new house and work with you to refine it, considering your needs and wants, as well as any regulatory requirements. We’ll submit planning applications and obtain the necessary approvals.
4) Technical Design
We will produce detailed drawings, schedules, and specifications that we tender to builders for the onset of work on-site.
6) Completion & Handover
Once the build is complete, we’ll conduct a final inspection and provide any necessary documentation for maintenance and future use of your new house. We’ll ensure a smooth handover of the project to you.
