we offer

Our professionalism is the core of our service.

We adhere to the work structure set out by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

Our aim is to provide our services to our clients in a clear and transparent manner.

Architects are a professional body. We act as an agent on your behalf to turn your aspirations into reality. We will guide you through the design, planning and construction process whether you are constructing a new building or adapting an existing property. We adhere to the structure of the RIBA stages of work, providing architectural services which can be commissioned in full or in part.

In short, we offer three main types of service:

1)  Full Service

Whether it would be a Tradition Service or Architect-led Design & Build, we would work with you from the beginning till the end. This is to ensure the delivery of the project would be as you expected. We will guide you through each stage of the building journey, fulfilling the legislative requirements, and managing other consultants. This service is suitable for client who has little experience or wish to have less hassle in the project involvement. 

 

2)  Design Only

This service is suitable for client has sufficient knowledge to manage their project, Design & Build projects or on those project which is uncertain to commence work.

Some projects may not be as simple as some may think. An hour brainstorm session with us is well worth to explore the potentials of your ideas, as well as knowing the extensive impacts and technical issues that you might not have thought of. Our standard consultation hourly rate at £80 +VAT, will be the key step to ensure your multi-thousands pounds investment is set off in the right course.
