Tender and Planning Stage

We can provide detailed drawings and specifications which can be issued to builders so that a complete and accurate price can be obtained.
We can assist you in selecting the contractor by checking the prices which come back and negotiating the best price on your behalf.

 

Post Building Warrant Services

The architect can be involved in the project throughout the planning and construction phase and plays a vital role in ensuring the quality of the finished building. Without the architect being involved at this critical stage the quality and finer detail can be lost in the process of construction. For more information about the role of the architect please refer to;

Design

 

We offer unique design solutions to each client. We work closely with you to research and understand your requirements so that we can offer you the best possible solution for your property. We believe in a thoroughly researched and rigorous design process which explores all options at the outset.

 

Environmental

 

We take a holistic approach to each project. We consider the services and environmental aspect, through the design stages and we can advise on upgrading of existing properties to enhance thermal performance. We also work with mechanical and electrical engineers when the project requires it. We strive to achieve low running and maintenance costs for each job.

Completion

 

We provide a follow up service, which will involve coming back after the work is complete and preparing a snagging list so that the builder can remedy any defects. We will ensure that the work is complete to satisfy building regulations standards and we will obtain the Completion Certificate from the Local Authority.

 

Construction Phase

 

We can set up and administer the contract between the client and the builder. The directors will visit the site on a regular basis to oversee the work and will hold regular site meetings with the client to ensure that their concerns are being met. We will ensure a high quality and stress free build by issuing Architects Instructions to rectify work which has not been carried out in accordance with the contract drawings.
