ARCHITECTURAL SERVICES WE OFFER
Measured Site Survey
Our experienced designers will attend your property and take a comprehensive set of laser-accurate measurements and photographs. While there, we will have in-depth discussion with you about the scope and possibilities of your project. These initial site surveys form the basis of our project designs.
Scope of Work
We can create a full scope of work, which can be used to keep track of your project throughout the construction phase. It breaks down the build into a step-by-step guide to ensure everything is completed correctly and in the right order.
Initial Design Stage
We will create a full set of existing and proposed plans, sections and elevations for your project. These are a detailed set of architectural drawings that can be used for planning purposes and to base your build costs on.
We use advanced 3D modelling software when creating your architectural drawings. This allows us to generate photo-realistic renders of exactly how the finished design will look and affords you unparalleled appreciation of our work.
Once we have secured all the required permissions, we undertake your building regulations drawings. This serves as a full set of instructions in both written and visual form as to how we expect your project to be built. These technical documents include drainage plans, insulation specifications, minimum clearances and build ups of structure to name but a few.
Our in-house engineers will undertake a full set of structural load calculations, which will tell us exactly what foundations, steel and timber need to be implemented in order to construct your project both safely and efficiently. This is a vital part of any construction project, and having in-house engineers allows us to work closely with them to create a structure which makes sense on-site as well as on paper.
If you require further confidence that your quotes from other builders include absolutely everything you need, we can produce a tender document to complement our design package. This includes a full bill of quantities to give you the confidence that no stone is left unturned when you receive a quotation.
3D Printed Models
Our state-of-the-art lab station is ready to produce a real-life scale 3D model of your design. These are always included in our design packages and provide invaluable assistance in understanding some of the more complex elements of our projects.
Construction Feasibility Report
Once you have a set of basic drawings, our build team are ready to step in and provide you with a fully broken-down construction feasibility report. This gives you the advantage and will allow you to tweak the design to fit your budget requirements, without being faced with potentially devastating on-site design changes.
Virtual Reality Walkthrough
Our Oculus virtual reality system allows us to give you a guided tour through your dream home before we even have planning permission! This cutting-edge technology provides a full appreciation for every element of the design and ensures that we achieve exactly what you want as quickly as possible.
LAB STATION / DESIGN STUDIO
Our high street office is the base for all our operations. This means that we have one central location in London where our build and design teams come together regularly. Our purpose-built design studio is utilised by our experienced project managers, build estimators and skilled builders, giving all our projects a level-headed focus from conception through to production. This means that you can expect direct input from our construction teams, which will feed into your designs to perfectly hit the balance between conceptual design and practicality.
Our virtual reality suite is the feather in the cap of our design studio. It allows us to completely immerse you in your dream home before you have laid a single brick. You can ‘walk through’ your new open-plan kitchen extension, climb the stairs into your loft conversion, or step out into your garden room. There really is no better way to experience your ideas, other than actually building them!
Our Lab Station
Our 3D printing ‘Lab station’ allows us to produce three levels of your property at one time, offering a rapid prototype system that we can use for every draft of your designs if required. This will give you a design development experience that can be held in your hand and understood instantly by every member of the family. Not everyone can appreciate a complex set of architectural drawings, but with a real-life 3D model, it is clear to see what the desired outcome will be.
