"Harmony in space and light"

Core Services..

We offer our clients a full design and project management service on all aspects of the building project from the inception of a new proposal to the completion of the project and resolution of the final account in the following types of building work:

  •  New build housing
  •  Residential extensions and alterations
  •  Educational Buildings
  •  Listed and Historic Buildings
  •  Social housing and special needs facilities
  •  Environmental projects
  •  Church and Community projects

On most projects we find there are typically 3 stages to the ‘Basic Services’ we offer our clients:

Conceptual Design and Planning Stage
  • We consider the feasibility for the proposed project and can advise on the outline budget for the works.
  • We discuss and clarify the brief for the project with our client and agree a conceptual approach.
  • We develop the design from the concept to the planning stage engaging additional professional services where needed and securing Local Authority approvals where required.
Detail Design and Tender documents Stage
  • We advise our client on the appointment of additional consultants to the design team and the scope of service required from them. 
  • With the design team we develop the detailed and technical aspects of the project and integrate into the overall design.
  • We develop tender documentation and manage the tender stage of the project including the selection of suitable contractors to tender for the works.
Contract Administration Stage
  • We agree terms of contract with the selected contractor on behalf of our client and prepare contract documentation.
  • We administer the terms of the building contract as the works proceed, providing additional design information as needed, agreeing periodic valuations, and issuing certificates for payment.
  • We determine ‘Practical Completion’ and the ‘handover’ for the project and conclude the contractor’s final account for the project.
