Architecture

Communication is Key

When it comes to delivering a successful project, communication is key. We work closely with our clients in developing a brief that meets design aspirations, site constraints and budget.

The planning stage of your development can often be the most crucial aspect of a project and the correct approach to obtaining the pre-application advice can help to avoid unnecessary delays and costs.

With accurate measured surveys and topographical land surveys undertaken by our in-house team, we are able to ensure that our carefully drafted planning drawings provide the detail and design which can save time and money at the later building stage. Working closely with our clients, we take projects through from conception to Planning or Building Regulation submission. Our final working drawing packages include detailed specification notes to assist in the tender stage and for successful on-site management.

Current or Recently Completed Projects

Residential Extension and Alterations including Orangery

The owner of this Arts and Crafts inspired Edwardian house in Oxfordshire required internal structural alterations to rationalise the ground floor layout together with the construction of a large rear extension in the form of an Orangery with lantern roof. Having to navigate local authority requirements for an archaeological dig on the site owing to historical interest of the local area we are pleased that the project is now complete and are delighted with the end results.

Industrial Units and Offices, Castlethorpe, Milton Keynes

For this interesting project our remit was to prepare a detailed working drawings package for a three phase development of industrial units and office accommodation in Castlethorpe, Milton Keynes.  Our comprehensive CAD drawings have enabled the successful application for Building Control Approval, have been utilised in the tendering process and are currently assisting as a Construction Guide on site.  The project is now into its second phase and we are enjoying seeing its progression.
