Architects services are divided into three stages:
This is the sketch design phase in which all potential ideas are drawn up and tested, before other consultants are engaged keeping cost at a minimum. Cost and duration of the project are being investigated and how the project is being taken to the next stage. This service can be provided in isolation or as part of the full design service.
This is the stage when the design concept is being developed into scaled plans with detailed structural solutions, engineering input to account for heating, electrics, lighting etc.Detailed planning application documents are developed first and after completed designs ready to obtain detailed costings from contractors.
We will obtain fixed prices from selected contractors and organise building contracts on behalf of our clients. We can co-ordinate every aspect of the build, from managing builders and consultants, to monitoring the progress of the building works on site through to successful delivery.
