WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU
We provide full RIBA architectural services which in basic terms means that we can take our clients through a project from the initial development ideas or napkin sketch, through to handing over a completed building and review of its as-built performance.
We typically work with commercial and public sector clients including developers, development managers, contractors, local authorities, building owners and charities.
FEASIBILITY & CAPACITY APPRAISALS
We are experienced in the evaluation of the development potential of buildings and sites which enables our clients to make informed decisions about their projects. We help them to realise the most valuable, market-appropriate responses to site constraints and opportunities through the application of a combination of methodological checklists, a creative interrogation process and in depth market knowledge.
"We unlock the full development potential through multi-stage planning strategies combined with confident design based on our extensive experience and market knowledge."
CONCEPT DESIGN & PLANNING
Thorough knowledge, research and understanding of all applicable residential and shared living national and local planning policies and design codes ensures that we have a proven track record of achieving planning permission for proposals on difficult and contentious sites. We apply our specialist knowledge effectively and creatively taking into account commercial constraints and opportunities, buildability and opportunities to create desirable buildings, homes and communities.
We use both digital and physical tools including BIM and 3D-printed models to develop and share designs with the clients, project team, local authorities and key stakeholders.
"We have hands on experience and passion for designs that can be built efficiently and effectively."
TECHNICAL DESIGN & DELIVERY
We are experienced in technical design on a range of new build, refurbishment and modular projects procured under both traditional and design & built procurement methods. We have performed the roles of both retained and novated architect as well as the clerk-of -works on a range of complex inner city project ranging from multi-storey basements to air rights projects and listed building refurbishments.
We operate in a BIM Level 2 environment and work in a collaborative and proactive way to coordinate and realise projects effectively and efficiently.
To discuss your planning requirements please get in touch with Alistair.
"We are modular and offsite specialists."
MMC, MODULARISATION AUDITS & MODULAR DESIGN DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURE
We are often brought in to carry out architectural design audits to review the suitability for projects to utilise factory made & modular construction. We have a constructive approach to this work and we clearly communicate our ﬁndings in order to find the most practical solution to implement MMC with minimum design changes or abortive work.
The best results are typically achieved when modular and offsite integration happens early in the project programme and when you engage someone who understands modular from the beginning. We understand how to transfer designs into factory production efficiently and effectively.
For complementary MMC/modular review or modular design of your project please get in touch with Lukasz.
