We work with many small to medium sized property developers in both the domestic and commercial sectors. The elegant solutions that we deliver demonstrate our architectural flair.

1. Enquiry

Normally the size of a piece of land or existing building will dictate the level of development it can accommodate. However it is also important to consider the surrounding land uses and planning policies that may well restrict what can be achieved. We can carry out a feasibility study prior to purchase, this can assist a developer to establish whether the piece of land or building is worth investing in in the first place.

2. Measured survey

We will advise whether a topographical survey and/or a measured building survey will be required - at least one of these will be necessary. We can carry out the measured building survey ourselves but outsource the topographical survey to a long standing, trusted supplier.

3. Scheme proposal

The needs of developers vary from one project to another and we find that this can be an evolutionary stage; if you are converting existing buildings we can provide scheme proposals, if you are considering a new build we can produce site plans. We can do as much or as little as you require, subject to the stage at which you involve us.

4. Planning

Requirements for the planning application process are more onerous for developers. Our trusted partners provide us with the required information to allow us to make the correct initial application and adopt the best possible strategy. We understand that the discharge of planning conditions is particularly important for developers as this ensures a smooth transition from receiving planning approval to starting work on site.

5. Detailed Design

We provide detailed construction drawings that a builder can both price accurately against and build from, and achieve a building regulations approval notice with very few conditions. This helps assure builders that they have an accurate set of plans to work with and reduces the risk of additional costs.

6. Build process

We can provide a bespoke service to suite client requirements or we can offer a full post contract service if the client and project requires it.

“The hospital department has been very cleverly & sympathetically transformed and we now have a working environment suitable for the developing need of health care in the 21st century. Matt’s design breaks up a large area to good effect; the waiting areas are split into three meaning that you are never crowded, while access to an outside courtyard allows you to sit outside and enjoy some fresh air. ”
