We carry out the design function for our clients projects, from initial brief to handover from the builder if required (see 'process' for further details).
We have worked for a varied client base on a mixture of property types, from the public, sports clubs, bowls clubs, restaurants, public houses and play-groups, working on domestic properties, commercial office properties, shops, a dental practice, Grade 2 listed buildings, barns, farmhouses, industrial units, cold-stores, in Conservation areas and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We have even obtained planning permission for a small lake!
We can obtain planning permission and building regulations approval and leave the client with three sets of approved drawings, or take the project through the enhanced specification and tender process, or right through the build phase in a project management capacity, acting as the link between the client and the builder.
Our design work is done using the AutoCAD software suite, making liaising with other disciplines and offices a simple process, allowing transfer of information to take place at the click of a button. It is also a very 'green' way to conduct business, cutting down on paper copies by around 80%.
We do still prefer to sketch ideas the 'old fashioned' way on a drawing board with a pencil as we feel it helps the thought process and gets the designer more in touch with the project.
