We undertake measured building surveys to provide accurate drawings to form the basis of any project. For more complex buildings, such as Listed structures, we work closely with our network of external surveyors to obtain required information.


After initial consultations to determine the brief, our team focuses on key elements to develop into conceptual designs for review. We carry out feasibility studies to test a wide range of ideas and options, allowing multiple aspects to be considered before committing to a refined design route. 


We have extensive experience with the submission of planning applications, from pre-planning through to approval. This includes all planning drawings and associated documentation, as well as direct liaison with the local authority throughout. For more complicated strategies, we work closely with our network of external planning consultants to ensure the most successful outcome. 


Following any planning approval, we can assist with all associated conditions from pre-commencement to pre-occupation requirements.


We understand that the buildings we create must work as a single entity, transitioning seamlessly from external to internal, and pride ourselves on creating exciting, contemporary and functional interiors. Using 3D modelling, we can collaboratively showcase a design’s progression and ensure the desired vision is achieved.


We produce photo realistic images of our designs to improve overall understanding of final aesthetic, scale and context. We consider these an essential tool and use visualisations to communicate design development, for planning proposals and to help promote new schemes..


Our technical team strives to maintain clear understanding of latest building regulations and has extensive experience working closely with other key consultants, including building control inspectors, structural and civil engineers, MEP consultants and fire engineers.   


Our technical team works closely with builders, contractors, and sub-contractors to produce final technical drawing packages, which include the production of fully compliant building regulations drawings, schedules, specifications, and all key construction details to assist with the build.
