Stage 0 - Where you start with us.
We will plan a visit to your house in Ham. If you are not based in this area we can still arrange a local architect to come to your location.
In either circumstance the architect will assess your house and discuss your ideas, desires and aspirations.
We also to discuss with you a budget and costs allocated for construction which will enable usto give advise with this figure in mind.
Stage 0.5 - Feasibility for your home in Ham
We will assess your house to see if the project you have in mind has restrictions.
These can be:
- Likelyness of multiple objections by neighbours.
- Restrictions of building in a conservation area.
- Boundry disputes.
- Overlooking & privacy breaching viewpoints.
- Grade listed property restrictions.
Stage 1 - Drawn Survey
These are survey drawings are 2D line drawings at 1:100 scale, depicting the plan layout and 2D elevation views of the main facades of the property.
Unlike the site visit, this survey does not include any measurements or drawings of the grounds & garden. This survey ensures that if works were to take place within the curtilage then a further topographical survey will also be required.
This is important for planning, as it allows us to gain true knowledge about the building. knowledge on its construction, structural integrity and historical phasing. It can identify previously blocked openings, and can reveal modern additions which may be possible to remove. This knowledge will also aid and influence the concept design.
Stage 2 - Concept Design
Although the Concept Design of your property doesn't necessarily involve any specific metrics or measurements it is still a key stage of any project as it puts your wants and needs in place for the scheme design that follows.
It is important to us that the concept design captures all of the nifty imaginationary that you may have and sketch us these concepts no matter how adventurously the ideas, as we always look to include these desired visions in once way or another even if the plan involves scaling down the venture to sit inside restrictions.
The concept stage of the project is often an important motion towards commiting to an architect we would usually expect there to be an extensive period of dialogue as the design brief progresses onwards.
