We produce conceptual designs through to full construction drawing packages. These include detailing, mechanical and electrical layouts, general arrangement plans, reflected ceiling layouts and finishes schedules.
With an abundance of commercial, residential and clinic design ideas, our designers are dedicated to each project from the initial phases through to completion. We issue drawing revisions as required and produce detailed “as built” drawings.
As well as having our own in-house designers we work alongside architects and our clients’ design teams upon request.
As a specialist design and build company, we have our own dedicated site teams, consisting of builders, decorators, carpenters, electricians and plumbers. We also undertake air conditioning installations and mechanical works. We provide full certification on all completed works, including electrical certification, Gas Safe and building control completion certificates. We also work closely with external designers, architects and consultants.
We are able to offer a Contract Administration role for our clients if required, including drawing up contracts, appointment of contractors, dealing with valuations and payments and managing the contract to ensure a successful project.
We have a dedicated design and build procurement department able to produce budget costs or full scope of works documents. From large-scale commercial renovations to local laboratory refurbishment projects, with our experience, our estimators work closely with our clients and our designers to cost-engineer designs and budgets to suit our clients’ requirements. Our aim is to provide accurate estimates and cost transparency for our clients through detailed cost documentation.
Our team can help with the preparation and submission of plans for local authority planning applications. We offer an advisory service for our clients on the planning application and approval process for all types of refurbishment or building projects – residential or commercial – including museum improvements, dental clinic design and office furnishing. We will liaise with relevant local authorities, listed building consents and English Heritage .
As part of the services of our design and build company, we take care of all Building Control issues. This includes appointment of a Building Control company (if required) or dealing with local authority building control officers, including planned site inspections, plan checks and building control sign off and certification, ensuring that all our works are fully compliant.
Our highly experienced design and build Project Managers work closely with our clients through the design stage of the project through to completion. Our Project Managers ensure that our clients’ needs are met and that projects complete within budget and within the agreed time frames to an extremely high standard. We ensure that all the clients’ equipment / furniture suppliers or nominated contractors are fully coordinated and managed within the overall programme. We liaise fully with the appointed CDM coordinator.
We undertake site surveys as part of our service in order to produce accurate drawings. Our designers will create space plans featuring the clients’ furniture and equipment to ensure that all designs are efficient and make the most of the space available whilst creating a perfect ergonomic working environment.
