Our design approach is to listen carefully to each client's vision and to interpret that vision in built form. Our design process follows a series of phases, you can choose them as full or as individual packages.

Pre design phase

We gather information necessary to begin the design phase: we meet the client and visit the site, we investigate planning restrictions, we advise on site layout and orientation.
We can provide a land geodata survey, architectural surveys and assessments of existing houses.

If you are looking for a renovation project or an house extension, we carry out a detailed measured survey of your existing house and prepare a set of drawings of the propriety. We can convert these plans into a 3D model, in order to compare the house before and after the works.

Initial design

Starting from your desires, expectations and budget requirements, we develop a design concept which responds to your needs and to the site specifications. If the client approach us with a new built house project, we work carefully around the site, paying particular attention to orientation, wind and landscape aspects, dealing with all possible aspects of the new home.
If conservation or renovation works are required, our experience allow us to recommend you the best way to approach an existing building and particular attention will be given in the refurbishment design phase.

Planning phase

If the proposed design requires planning permission, we can contact the Planning Authority of your area and arrange a pre-planning consultation as part of planning process. At this stage the preparation of a 3D model of the proposed building is a key factor for the presentation of the project to the local authority.

We will prepare and submit the documentation required for the application (site plans, plans, elevations, sections, details) and monitor the application during the permission period and answer queries as they arise

Developed\detail design

We will prepare working drawings and specifications for the construction phase. At detailed design we seek the best technology solutions, materials, details, on basis of cost, energy efficiency, air-thightness and U values. We can also prepare electrical and mechanical drawings. A fully comprehensive set of drawings are used for the construction phase of the project and additional design information will be provided throughout the construction phase in order to respond to site conditions and client's desire.

Once the design phase has been finalised we provide a detailed, thorough cost estimate based on the plans and specifications we prepared, and we utilise our skill and experience to see the job is finished on time and on budget.
