Residential Projects

The practice currently undertakes a wide variety of residential projects ranging from one off commissions and alterations & extensions for private clients, to conversions of listed buildings to provide residential and/or commercial units and small-scale housing developments.

For smaller projects we offer a 'Plans Only' service, where we work with our clients to develop the scheme and take it through the Planning & Building Regulations (plans) stages, up to a point where the client can then proceed with their own contractor. As part of this service we offer guidance regarding contractual arrangements for the works, obtain quotations from and liaise with any specialist consultants as may be required (Structural Engineers, Land Surveyors, Arboriculturists & Environmental Consultants etc.) as well as liaising with the local Water Authority where required. We will also prepare, submit and monitor applications made on behalf of our clients for Planning, Certificates of Lawfulness, Listed Building Consent and Building Regulations as well as any other applications that may be necessary.

For larger or more complex projects, or where the client wishes to retain our support through the construction phase, we also offer our 'Full Architectural' service. For this, we remain involved with the project beyond the Building Regulations plans stage to prepare the specification and detailed construction documents, invite competitive tenders from selected contractors, and prepare and administer the Contract with the contractor. This would involve our regular attendance on site, control of variations and certification of any payments due, the issuing of Practical and Final Completion certificates and agreement of the final account.

On all projects where we are appointed as Architects, we also offer to include for our appointment as Principal Designer as required under the 2015 CDM Regulations. We will also advise clients regarding The Party Wall etc. Act, Permitted Development Rights and other relevant legislation as appropriate.

We also offer a range of 3D modelling and visualisation services to assist our clients with design decisions or to accompany applications. These can range in complexity, from a basic 3D massing model to more realistic level with detailed rendered images and video walk-throughs.
