Our architectural experience includes designing and obtaining planning permission for all types of projects, from new build homes and extensions to renovation or commercial projects. Design services include: Site Surveys, Architectural Plans, Planning Applications, 3-D rendered images, Building Control drawings and Structural Calculations.
We can safely assume that if you're choosing our architectural design services, you have a building project in mind, and whether it's a complete new build or a modest extension be assured we will deliver the same care and attention to detail to the design process. In a nutshell the process from start to finish consists of:
01. INITIAL DESIGN CONSULTATION
We will arrange a site visit to discuss your requirements for the project. We have relationships with Planning Experts whom we can also bring along to advise on Listed Buildings or sensitive developments.
02. QUOTATION & CONTRACT
We will then review the work required to undertake the design of the project and send you a written quotation by email, breaking down the various design elements. A contract between Phi and the Client is then signed, and we are good to start.
03. SITE SURVEY
Once contracts are signed we will undertake a site survey. We can also arrange topographical surveys to be undertaken if required.
04. CONCEPT DESIGN
Design concepts for your project are produced.
05. CLIENT CONSULTATION
For the design review meeting we will present both 2-D plans and 3-D visual designs for consideration. Client feedback is obtained in order to move forward to the final design stage.
05. FINAL DESIGN + PLANNING PERMISSION
Final concepts are developed and agreed, and the supporting planning documentation is produced ready for submission to the Local Planning Authority.
06. BUILDING CONTROL SUBMISSION
Once planning permission has been obtained, detailed design drawings will then be produced for approval by Building Control. Once approved building work may then commence.
