Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Ditton Hill, Surrey
Des Ewing Residential Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Ditton Hill, Surrey
"We used Des and his team for a new build and renovation project in Leicestershire. From the beginning they focused on our requirements and ensured they delivered it. The building was well designed, fitted the conservation area perfectly and on budget. The DesEwing business provided a unique design that gets noticed for all the right reasons. Materials used were the best and even the choice of brick made a huge difference. We would recommend DesEwing Residential Architects without reservation. Kate Smart"

VORBILD Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in Ditton Hill, Surrey
"Hired Vorbild Architecture to design a few units I was remodeling. The work they offer is that of high quality and experience. I've dealt with other Architecture firms in the past, but they've always given sub par customer service and similar results in their work ethic and craftsmanship. Vorbild is one company I would recommend for any project big or small. I will definitely be working with them in the future."

MODEL Projects Ltd
Architects and Building Designers in Ditton Hill, Surrey
"Model Projects were a delight, from the initial brief with James who immediately took my requirements and turned them into a fantastic design - spot on first time with no amendments necessary. Kathryn then took over on a day to day basis as project manager and I cannot praise her highly enough. Dealing with the local authority, building control, structural engineers and the many contractors was done with calm and determination and I now have my dream space."

Martins Camisuli Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Ditton Hill, Surrey
"Martins Camisuli designed and project managed a new kitchen project in my home. I wanted something individual and crafted. It involved complete remodelling of the space, removal of walls and the design and manufacture of bespoke kitchen units. They were responsive to my ideas, creative and enthusiastic. I found it very easy to communicate with them and the works were completed on time and on budget. I think the choice of materials and overall design are warm simple and enduring. I would be very happy to have the opportunity use them again."

CATO creative Ltd
Architects and Building Designers in Ditton Hill, Surrey
"CATO creative have designed and project management our house refurbishment. They've literally done everything for us and have designed a fantastic family home that considers everybody including the cats. Right from the start the level of creativity and imagination has they have shown has been fantastic. I never imagined that we've have fairground lights in the loo, a metal staircase to the loft and a gloss red staircase in the hallway - We have! Throughout the process they involved us fully in the fun bits and left us out of all the hard work. They took care of all the planning and permissions required to start the works. To find a builder the team completed a tender for us helping us appoint the right contractor. During the build they managed everybody making sure it all happened at the right time. Hopefully the photographs will be shared soon."

Concept 8 Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Ditton Hill, Surrey
"I hired Concept8 for a complete renovation project of a 4,000sqf family home over 12 months in 2013-14. The Concept8 team was responsible for architectural design, organizing tenders, sourcing contractors & materials, monitoring the entire process onsite & dealing with all contractors from start to hand-over (and beyond). I found in Concept8 a team of dedicated professionals, able to listen to our needs, highly knowledgeable in their domain, well-connected with a large network of professionals in the construction business, without which my own personal project would not have been a success."

Maxwell & Company Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Ditton Hill, Surrey
"I employed Maxwell & Company Architects to upgrade the interior of a recently purchased period property in central London. The design work was exemplary, taking into consideration my own desires and requirements while adding what I like to call 'liveable style': not only does it look great, but the spaces work at a practical level and are a pleasure to inhabit. I feel that detailing is one of the company's strong points, and shows the real benefit of employing a professional designer (I speak from experience of past refurbishment projects). The client designer relationship was convivial and, with Maxwell & Company Architects managing the building work, the job ran smoothly and to deadline and actually a little under the projected budget. Any hiccups or design changes were handled in an entirely professional manner. In all, a low-stress build that resulted in a great product. Highly recommend."

The Cave Cooperative Ltd
Architects and Building Designers in Ditton Hill, Surrey
"The Cave Cooperative were the architects that designed my newbuild residential annex project in Oxfordshire through the planning process to detailed design. They provided excellent advice on using more natural building materials and came up with innovotive solutions to bridge existing drainage. They were very good through the planning process by helping me get the most out of the 40% volume restrictions in the greenbelt. They are very user friendly and always respond to any queries swifly and with diligence. Paul Harvey at Cave Cooperative has provided an excellent service and I would highly recommend this company particulalrly if you are interested in natural building materials and energy efficient building."

How do I choose the right Ditton Hill, Surrey architect?


Begin by determining the type of architectural service you require. Is it merely advice that you need? Or a detailed set of architectural design plans? Are you hoping to add a single-storey extension or are you really looking for someone to design you a custom home and handle construction management right through to completion? One of the most important duties of full service architects in Ditton Hill, Surrey is to serve as project managers and supervise most aspects of construction as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors.

Architecture is an incredibly technical profession and one where getting things wrong can literally put lives at risk, so do background checks on your Ditton Hill architect. Check they are registered with architecture associations such as the Architect’s Registration Board (ARB) and The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). Being part of an architecture association means that an architect or architecture firm has met certain standards, qualifications and practices, and can be held accountable if they don’t meet these standards. It’s advisable to choose architects that specialise in the kind of project that you are undertaking as their existing experience will shine through in the completed design. Look for an architect in Ditton Hill, Surrey that can provide references and reviews of their previous work.

Once you have determined the service level you need, your next consideration will be architectural style. Some architects specialise in designing for traditional housing such as period cottages and country homes, or even in designing modern replicas in a period style. Others have a knack for imagining bolder, more futuristic architectural design in Ditton Hill, Surrey incorporating the latest green technology. Check their Houzz profile and website for examples of previous work. Early on, try to gauge availability – there’s no point in choosing an architect that’s going to be booked for months if you have a tight deadline. Some architects are happy to do all their work online or over the phone with you, but if you’d prefer to work with an architect in person then check that your chosen architects in Ditton Hill, Surrey will travel to you.

What is the process to hire an architect?


At the first meeting, preferably at your property or building site, give as clear a picture as possible of the kind of home you are trying to create to your architects. Chat through your goals, projected budget, scope of work, schedule and feedback, together with any very specific requirements you might have. It is crucial that your architects are clear about their responsibilities and that these are documented in the contract. Ask them to walk you through the process, including the number of architectural design consultations, site visits and what they will be delivering and when, e.g. feasibility study, a technical drawing, tender package and/or planning application drawings. They could illustrate this using a previous client’s project. Also, what does the architect need from you? Deeds, rights of way, deposit, staged payments etc. Once you have covered all this detail, you are ready to make your choice and get started. The architecture company in Ditton Hill, Surrey that you hire will likely start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings, CAD and videos, but this is by no means essential.

What makes a good architect?


You are looking for architects in Ditton Hill, Surrey that have the right balance of creative flair, technical nous, practicality and impeccable service to see you through. Get a sense of whether they are a good listener, collaborator and problem solver. Checking their references will also be invaluable at this stage so look at their Houzz profile for past customer reviews. Ask to speak to previous clients, particularly regarding their responsiveness and ability to work creatively around a budget.

How much does hiring an architect cost?


There is no set payment structure for an architect. Some Ditton Hill, Surrey architects will charge an hourly rate, others base their fees on a percentage of the total construction cost or propose a fixed fee (payable in instalments) for projects such as house extensions or a complete home design. You may wish to pay in stages to safeguard against any possible dissatisfaction with the quality of service. Make sure the total figure and payment schedule is agreed as part of your contract, particularly if you are trying to accurately estimate the cost of building a house.

  • How long have you been an architect in Ditton Hill, Surrey? Are you part of ARB and RIBA? Are you part of any other associations of architectural design in Ditton Hill, Surrey?
