Residential Architecture

We help you get planning when it is required and a Certificate of Lawful Development when planning is not required. For simpler domestic projects, the Certificate of Lawful Development takes away the uncertainty about whether you have ticked the Planning boxes or not.

The planning process is never black and white and can get very political. We manage the entire planning process, from the straight forward to the more complex that may require negotiation and the help of a Planning Consultant. We have the experience, expertise and local knowledge to guide you through

 

THE APPLICATION

Once you have received planning permission, its time to prepare your Building Regulations application. Our drawings will amplify the design proposals to include thermal, acoustic, health and safety, fire, sanitary and all other regulatory requirements. This normally includes large scale proposed plans, elevations, cross sections, construction details, construction method specifications, workmanship and material information. We will make a Building Regulations application on your behalf and negotiate an approval when required.

INTERIOR DESIGN

At this stage you will have all your permissions in place and a full specification for the shell of the build. This interior design phase helps to bring the building to life with colour and finishes. Although most of the decisions in this interior design phase lie with the you, as interior design experts we will point you in the right direction for inspiration. We’ll support you with the aesthetic direction that is right for your project and vision.

When all the information is finalised, drawings and schedules of information will be produced to provide a thorough description of the construction process as well as fixtures and fittings.

 

BUILDING AND QUALITY CONTROL

In this final stage our role as architect is to administer the construction contract. We monitor the project on your behalf and make regular site visits. We check that the works are being carried out in accordance with the contract drawings, without any delay and in a professional manner. Some of the key tasks we manage on your behalf includes

  • Site visits
  • Building inspector visits
  • Regular project meetings
  • Responding to client and contractor queries
  • Issuing instructions
  • Certifying payments
  • Getting the project certificate
