The Process

1.

Free Initial Consultation

1. Free, no-obligation site visit: This is the opportunity for us to get to know you, and to form a picture of your precise requirements. It is also the time for you to get answers to any questions you might have.

2.

Defining the brief and checking feasibility

The next step will be for us to make a closer analysis of your proposed project. Our assessment will be informed with photographs and detailed measurements. We will also carefully consider any legal issues that might be involved, and, importantly, we will assess whether your proposed budget is realistic for the envisaged work.

3.

Concept Design

Our design team will turn your ideas and aspirations into an outstanding concept design, which meets all functional requirements, at a price you can afford.

4.

Planning drawings & consents

We will assess the Planning Permission requirements of your proposed project. If any permissions are required, then there is no need for you to worry, as we can take care of this aspect of the process on your behalf. We are confident of obtaining the necessary consent, given our record of having achieved acceptance of Planning Permission on the first application on 97% of occasions.

5.

Building regulations & engineering

As part of our service, we will make sure that all aspects of the build comply with all current Building Regulations. As with any required planning consent, we can manage the process of obtaining any necessary approvals from Building Control.

6.

Construction plans & specifications

Our building team works with complete precision, following construction plans to the last millimetre, and providing the fixtures & fittings and finishes that exactly match your expectations.
