The Process

1. Site Consultation

The first step in the process is for us to fully understand what you want to achieve. Our approach is to carefully listen to your requirements so that we can design a solution that fits within your budget.

  • Discuss Initial Ideas & Identify Potential Issues
  • Establish Project Budget & Feasibility
  • Laser Measured Survey
  • Conduct Site Inspection

2. Conceptual Design & Estimate

The next step is to translate your ideas into a conceptual design. Our expertise in both design and construction means you’ll have an accurate estimate of costs and programme timescales early in the process.

  • Establish Scope of Works
  • Referral to Interior Design Team (if requested)
  • Quantity Surveyor Estimate
  • Create Master Programme
  • Sign Design & Build Agreement

3. Construction Drawings

Architectural drawings are then created for the relevant authorities and construction purposes. At this point in the process, accurate budget headings have already been established for the different components of the project.

  • Planning Application Submitted (if required)
  • Structural Engineer Calculations
  • Construction Drawings
  • Material Selections & Finishes Schedule
  • Full Scope of Works

  • Finalise Costs

  • Sign Construction Contract
  • Payment of Deposit

5. Pre-Construction & Delivery
