An architect can work with you to help you realise your project from inception to completion or a commission may only be for a particular stage - say preliminary design and the submission of a planning application.
An initial consultation is free of charge up to 1 hour duration.
Following an initial consultation we will respond with a scope of work and fee proposal. This is a written assessment of our understanding of what you are hoping to achieve. It will identify constraints and opportunities and will include recommendations for the appointment of other consultants - Party Wall surveyor, Structural Engineer etc. - and advice on the various stages of work from concept to completion.
Fees are fully negotiable and will be regularly reviewed throughout a commission.
