Construction projects are typically delivered in a series of work stages, which allow the design to be developed, tested and built – from developing the project brief with your architect to moving back in. Our process is based on the RIBA work stages, which we then tailor around each client and their specific requirements.
Where possible we enjoy seeing a project through from first conversations up to completion. This ensures that the initial vision of the project, which we develop together with our client, can be carried through and in every detail. However, we ask our clients confirm our appointment in advance of each work stage and you can opt for a design service only, also.
As the project progresses, it will become richer and more layered. Initial ideas will take shape and come to life by choosing and detailing materials. We will test spaces to make a coherent whole, a collection of spaces which will work around you. More broadly the scheme will be tested to work within its specific context. We believe each progressive stage should be used to make the design better and to maximise design quality.
We work in a structured manner and we believe that every stage has a creative dimension and is an opportunity to make the project better! This is our staged approach:
