You are about to embark on a great journey, to improve your lifestyle and your living.
Our Chartered Architects will be at your side to guide you and help you chose wisely.
Like a road trip with changing landscapes, the project will go through several stages with specific purposes.
There are 3 main phases in any project:
The first one is mostly about understanding what should, can and cannot be done.
The second is where the Architect's expertise is best employed and the project is designed based on the information gathered.
The last one is when things are actually built following the design or adjusting to unforeseen circumstances.
At the beginning we understand who you are and what you need, what are your desires and the practical constraints on the land or the property.
Together we decide what services are right for you and what should be the outcome for your project.
A clear brief and scope of work is agreed and they will be our foundation to work on.
RIBA Stages 0 - 1
With your inputs we create a bespoke design, honed step by step to the right level of detail.
A concept becomes a scheme, solutions are shortlisted and specialist consultants are heard until a final proposal is approved by you and the Planning Authority (when required).
We create an "instruction booklet", the technical package with details and specifications to build your project right.
The most suitable vetted builders from our pool are invited to bid for the project, we help you review and choose the best offer.
RIBA Stages 2 - 3 - 4
From the beginning until the end of site works and beyond, we help you prepare, inspect the site and deal with the contractors.
Any site queries are solved promptly, everything is tracked to ensure you are on top of things, hassle free.
In the end you have received all the documents, tests, certificates, and any defects are fixed for a full service of unexpected quality.
RIBA Stages 5 - 6
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has developed over the years a blueprint to deliver any project and is called RIBA Plan of Work.
From a cabin to an airport, the Plan of Work can be zoomed in or out and tailored to the project's requirements.
The most important thing it defines are the Stages from 0 to 7, and the tasks associated to each Stage.
Working with this bluerpint allows us to control the quality of the services we provide and deliverables we issue, respecting the highest industry standards.
Let's tailor the journey around you
There is no such thing as two identical projects.
You may be a first time home renovator, a DIY enthousiast, a serial developer, a contractor, a self builder.
Or an association of self-builders.
A house or a plot may look like the one next to it which has already been transformed, but there could be hidden differences.
Never two projects are the same.
This is why we tailor our services around your resources and the level of risk you are equipped to face.
Make our expertise yours, you will save time and money.
