Helping homeowners communicate their vision, providing builders with the detail they need to deliver that vision. We will see homeowners through the process from the initial designs through to providing a tender package, running the process to find and check out builders and answering their questions. We provide construction services checking the build is as per the design you've paid for, and that the works are of a suitable quality. We sign off the builders works and check costs prior to works or changes proceeding- avoiding the nasty final bill surprise.
We are a multi-skilled team providing space design, lighting and electrical design, smart control design, and independent renewable technology feasibility (we don't sell solar or other tech but can do the calculations to advise you).
We have been hands on with our own building projects on our homes, so we know what a building project is like to live with.

Professional Information:
We are a CIAT registered practice:
Our lead designers are Chartered Architectural Technologists and we also have a UK Registered Architect (ARB 091558K), and a CIBSE building services engineer.
Typical Job Costs: £150,000 - £4 million
The costs listed are the project value. Our fees are transparent and individual to each project based on the scope of services required both technical and administrative, and the size of the project. Listed buildings for example require considerably more detailed drawings for planning. Our fees for a large new build or reconfiguration average around 10% of the value of the works.
