Our Process

STEP 1

Discovery and Architectural Design

Through discovery meetings at the property, I will take the time to fully understand your requirements and offer clear, honest guidance and advice.

Working closely with you, we can ensure that all details are covered, to clarify the vision and provide the optimum concept solution. Where required, we’ll introduce you to appropriate architects for your build.

When designs perfectly fit your requirements, the architect will submit the palnning application where needed.

STEP 2

Structural Design

Once floorplans and elevations are agreed, I will brief the structural engineer to produce drawings and calculations and, if necessary, brief the party wall surveyor to write and serve party wall notices.

STEP 3

Specification of Works

A detailed specification of your requirements is then created by room and trade. This will include construction, electrics, plumbing, heating and finishes.

STEP 4

Build Tender

A short list of preferred contractors will be asked to provide quotes based on the architect’s drawings, structural calculations and specification.

Submitted quotes are reviewed and a final selection is made.

A JCT industry standard contract is drawn up including start and completion dates, payment schedule and program of works.

STEP 5

Interior Designs

I can have as much or as little involvement in the interior design as you require.
This stage will cover lighting, electrical and AV. Kitchens and bathrooms, fixtures and fittings, joinery, colour schemes and furniture.

My service includes all design and sourcing, with trade relationships often enabling favourable pricing.

STEP 6

Project Management

I will be the main point of contact for all contractors and trades, ensuring that they understand and deliver exactly to brief.

I will order fixtures and fittings to keep to schedule and manage the snagging process.

Variations to the specification during works will be managed by me, to ensure control of the budget and schedule, with clear and timely communication back to clients to be certain they remain fully briefed.
