RIBA work stage 1
The design process begins with a meeting with an architect at your property. This initial design session lasts for either half a day or a full day, depending on your requirements. We will help to define your brief and advise on the best way forward for the project.
We will assist with development of the brief and discuss alternative approaches for your project. This stage includes advising on the need for other consultants, from structural engineers to home automation specialists. We will also assess any soil or structural investigations required.
We will discuss a variety of design ideas with you, including material finishes, organisation of spaces, qualities of natural light and views. Following this we will produce a set of scaled, hand drawn sketch plans.
Assess required consents
The statutory consents required for your building project will be considered.
Your budget will be discussed and agreed. We will provide outline construction cost information based on current prices per square metre for comparable projects in London.
A programme will be produced alongside the payment schedule that describes the sequence and duration of each element of the design and construction works until completion on site.
