One of our construction specialists comes to meet you in person and view the plot of land
A site visit is one of the most important keys for your successful project. Even more so if it is your home. Looking at the place and discussing your vision face to face is the best way to understand your vision, your priorities and your expectations. A perfect results is not a success if it’s not what you want for your place. A conversation in person unlocks the translation of your vision into the technical format to make things real.
Capturing the said and unsaid: what you really want to achieve
One of our partner architects sits with you to understand your expectations, explain the cost options and translate your ideas in drawings
It is important to touch base and keep everything aligned, your vision and our understanding, to make sure that your priorities are taken care of. Sometimes a small inexpensive solution can save a lot of money and make you happier than a complex and expensive detail. Creativity and design need to be all focused on light, head-height, family space, life style, taste, comfort.
Translating the vision: how you achieve what you want with practical solutions
One of our partner architects produces all the documentation and drawings for the planning authority and manages the process to get your permission granted
Managing a planning permission application is a careful balance between realising your desires, maximising the potential of your property and managing the planning authority requirements. It’s very often a matter of details, studying the history of past decisions, appointing the right consultants and communicating effectively with the planning authorities. We always want to get approval as soon as possible, avoiding to file a proposal that is too conservative and won’t give you the home that you want.
Optimising the application: exploit your property’s potential within the constraints
One of our estimation specialists produces an accurate quotation for your project, including a break down of all the details and their cost
Investing your money in renovating your property can be a big decision. That is why understanding the quotation is paramount to make the best decision. Most important of all, the price must be reasonable. Rogue companies often quote a very low price to get appointed for the project, already planning to charge extras to make up for the difference; if not done on purpose, a contractor might choose to abandon the project when they realise it’s not profitable.
