This stage comprises identifying the essential requirements of the project,
assisting with the brief and the project's key objectives.
Key elements include:
Develop concept designs and drawings relative to the project’s brief, requirements and key features.
At this point, the design will be developed and updated based on client feedback. Once the final design changes have been made the scheme will be submitted for planning.
04a Technical Design
Once planning approval has been achieved, the technical design stage starts. Here the drawings will developed in sufficient detail to allow suitable contractors to undertake quotations for the proposed works. If required, an application for Building Regulations can also be submitted. Assistance with the appointment of other consultants can be provided such as Structural Engineers and Approved Inspectors. At this stage, co-ordination of the architectural drawings with other consultants’ drawings ensures a fully co-ordinated design.
04b Pre-construction stage
At pre-construction stage, once the technical drawings have been submitted to the contractors & Buildings Regulations for approval, I can provide assistance prior to the project starting on site such as undertaking analysis of tender quotes, help with choosing a builder and assisting with the Building Contract and associated documents.
Key elements include:
Now the project is on site, the construction phase occurs. This is a crucial stage in any building project and it is always an exciting moment when the project starts to take shape and become reality on site, especially after months of planning. Although this can be a stressful experience, I can ensure the building contract is in place, undertake regular site inspections to ensure the work is done property and assist with any queries and issues that do arise.
This is the final and exciting stage, where the project is now complete and you can enjoy the transformed and new space created. This is where the conclusion of the Building Contract occurs and the handover of the building back to the clients takes places. After construction is complete, I will stay in touch for 6 – 12 months to check for any defects or snagging issues and ensure you are happy with every aspect.
