For many clients we provide design and interior design services which will include the production of concept design proposals through to full technical drawings package and mood boards illustrating any one scheme. Design choices are presented with examples of everything from lighting, wall coverings, floor finishes, furniture, kitchen and bathroom choices, storage, wardrobes, doors, ironmongery, faceplates, switching and much, much more.
Our design skills marry very well with our more technical and construction building surveying skills and we are very often engaged to provide Design / Interior Design and Contact Administration or Project Management services for the same project.
We are able to create different options on the same theme. This approach is also useful when interior colour schemes are being decided. Other examples where we have used photoshop manipulation include changes to the facade of a modern block of flats, inclusion / exclusion of an entrance canopy, new boundary railings and perimeter walling and the effects of security lighting. We have even used Photoshop to demonstrate what an extension on a property in a private cul-de-sac may look like once completed.
The complexity of a specific project will dictate the detail and scale of the submissions to achieve the required consents. We have a wealth of experience in dealing with a wide range of projects including office to residential conversions, extensions, major window replacement schemes, over-cladding of 1960’s blocks through to smaller apartment reconfigurations and small scale alterations.
We also work alongside some market leading Approved Inspectors to ensure that Building Regulations Standards are complied with, yet we often consider alternative solutions to satisfy the relevant guidance without compromising compliance.
The design aspect of any scheme is of course critical but is not considered in isolation. Procurements and contract considerations would also be considered at feasibility stage as well as other external factors such as location, surroundings and neighbourly matters.
