Why it’s important
Housing developments and refurbishments require careful planning and a clear direction on what you wish to gain from your property’s enhancement. Your most important deserves a team that can provide attentive, quality advice and design inspiration.
How we do it
We usually meet at your property to understand the space, context and what your needs and desires are for your home. If you are in the process of buying and do not have property access, we can work around this. We then develop high level sketches and layouts to take your brief into visual form for your comments, survey your house to create a set of accurate ‘As Existing’ set of drawings which form the basis of subsequent design stages and add sufficient detail so as to get an understanding of costs.
Once the layout and materials have been agreed we enter discussions with the Planners and Building Control (if required) and provide a robust set of documents to enable a smooth transition into an approved design. This process requires management and takes months, so should be factored into completion dates.
During this stage we may suggest a team of contractors who can provide realistic costs and programme so when approvals land we are able to start without delay.
What’s the outcome?
A complete set of design information that is to your satisfaction, Local Authority compliant and suitable for accurate pricing.
