PROCESS

GETTING STARTED

[BRIEF]

 

We offer one-off consultations. The design process begins with a meeting at your property. The architect will give you guidance on all aspects of your project from design and cost through to planning and construction. Following the initial meeting, the architect will create a brief, addressing not only design aesthetics, but also the function of the building.

[PLANNING ADVICE]

Our architects will advise on the feasibility of obtaining Planning Permission, advise on design and internal layout configurations.

Thanks to their familiarity with London and UK planning regulations they will help you with the approvals required before your project can go ahead.

[SKETCHES]

We will discuss a variety of design ideas with you, including material finishes, organisation of spaces, qualities of natural light and views.

Following this, we will produce a set of hand-drawn sketch plans.

[QUOTE]

An initial budget will be agreed, and a draft payment schedule provided. A programme will be produced alongside the payment schedule

that describes the sequence and duration of each element of the design and construction works.

GETTING INVOLVED

[MEASURING SURVEY]

A member of our team will carry out a full measured survey of your home, taking direct measurements on site in order to have an accurate record of the property and produce the drawings required by the Local Planning Authorities.

[SCHEME]

We will provide different proposals based on your chosen design and requirements, working closely with you to decide final appearance of the scheme. Our team of architects will produce a full pack of planning drawings alongside realistic 3D visualisations, videos and sketches to enable you to clearly understand technical drawings and ideas.

[PLANNING APPLICATION]

Professional presentation and submission is the first step for the success of Planning Applications. Plans, elevations and sections will be prepared for planning consents alongside a design access statement. We will submit a full planning application on your behalf, liaising with the local authorities to take the application through to approval.

GETTING FINISHED

[BUILDING REGULATION]

A building regulations package and a full set of construction and structural engineering drawings are produced to comply with the building regulations.

[PARTY WALL SERVICE]

Issuing of party wall notice

Your architect will collaborate with a party wall surveyor to ensure that the appropriate party wall notices are issued.

[CONSTRUCTION PACK]

We will produce a full set of construction drawings to allow contractors to return with specific price and a total contract duration in weeks. We will advise on the selection of a contractor.

[HOME DESIGN ]

We want to provide our clients with a complete service, from concept to completion. For this reason we have expert interior designers on board the Design team. We offer interior design, landscape design, bespoke joinery and kitchen design.
