How We Work
At the initial design consultation, we meet with our clients to discuss their requirements and budget which will inform a well-considered design.
Concept / Feasibility
We provide our clients with a full suite of realistic concept 3D Visualisations & Drawings of the proposed new building. Feasibility is also considered at this stage to include budget, site and design changes. The option of a 3D walkthrough virtual tour of the building is also available. We use innovative technologies so that our clients can see and experience their building before it is built. This helps to avoid costly changes on-site later.
Developed Design / Planning
After our clients have signed off on the design, we then prepare and lodge the Planning Application. We also submit and manage all of the necessary Statutory documents required by law to include BC(A)R, Building Safety & Health Regulations, Fire Certificates and Disabled Access Certificates.
Detailed Design / Tender
We will prepare a detailed set of production drawings accompanied by a written specification and schedules which will allow a builder to accurately price the works. We also incorporate details provided by Consultants such as Civil & Structural Engineers, Mechanical & Electrical Engineers and Energy Consultants as required. Again, at this stage we also ensure that all statutory requirements are incorporated and complied with.
Construction / Certification
Throughout the construction phase, we regularly inspect the premises to ensure that what is built is in accordance with drawings and is legally compliant with Planning and Building Regulations. We also regularly meet our clients on site for the duration of the project. We issue certificates of payments due to the contractor for the Bank.
Project management is provided throughout the construction phase and in accordance with Building Control BC(A)R, we will act as Design and Assigned Certifier as required. Upon completion, all certificates required by law will be furnished such as your Certificate of Compliance with Planning and Building Regulations.
