Design & Build Service

We offer a full design and build service, designing your scheme from initial concept to fully costed design. Our in-house architectural design team tailor the design to suit your style and budget, and have the experience and knowledge to successfully navigate the pitfalls of individual boroughs’ particular planning departments.  We create exceptional living spaces, designed, constructed and meticulously planned to maximise contemporary living requirements, while emphasising your own personality, taste and design flair.

 

Our design fees are extremely competitive and the fee structure very simple. We charge a fixed cost for concepts and planning, then a further fixed cost for the construction package. Once the build goes live, all project management fees are covered within the build price, making the Design & Build route a very cost-effective choice against a traditional Architect / Contractor model.

Concept Development
& Planning

The design phase commences with a measured survey of your property. We then draw up suggested designs to an agreed client brief. This conceptual stage is a very enjoyable, collaborative process where we work with you to refine the optimum layout for your needs and maximise the potential of your property. We offer a full architectural cad drawing service supplemented by 3D visuals, from basic sketch up to detailed CGIs, to help you fully visualise the proposed scheme.

 

Once the concepts are signed off we submit the relevant applications and manage the planning process throughout. We pride ourselves on maintaining over a 90% success rate for planning applications and have successfully designed and submitted hundreds of complex planning schemes for London properties of every shape, scale and hue.

Construction Drawings

Prior to commencement on site we prepare a detailed technical drawing package for construction and building control approval, integrating the structural engineer’s drawings and any other specialist information. When the construction pack is complete we produce a fully itemised and costed scope of works.

 

Our methodology is to work with our clients to make all critical decisions and choices in advance of the build going live, so we can then hand over a comprehensive pack to the construction team. They know exactly what they are to build, and you know exactly what it is going to cost. We can work to a 5% contingency on projects where we have developed a fully detailed and itemised specification. Click here to see examples of drawing packages.
