Stage 1

Discover and Design

During the initial consultation, we take the time to truly understand your project goals, aspirations, and budget. We believe that every project is unique, and we listen attentively to your ideas, requirements, and vision. Following this, we conduct a comprehensive site visit and analysis, carefully considering the location, surroundings, and any potential constraints that may impact the design. By collaborating with you and conducting in-depth interviews, we gather all the necessary information to create a detailed project brief, ensuring that your needs and aspirations are at the forefront of our design process.

Stage 2

Conceptualize and Inspire

With a deep understanding of your project requirements, we embark on a journey of design exploration. Our talented team develops multiple design concepts that reflect your vision and preferences. We present these concepts to you, providing the opportunity for feedback and discussion. Through the use of floor plans, 3D models, and visualizations, we help you envision the potential of the space, considering functionality, aesthetics, and spatial flow. Our goal is to inspire you with innovative design solutions and provide a clear direction for the project.

Stage 3

Refine and Develop

After gathering your feedback on the initial design concepts, we refine and develop the chosen concept. This stage involves a collaborative process, where we integrate your input, address technical requirements, and optimize the design for practicality and feasibility. We work closely with consultants, such as structural engineers and MEP specialists, to ensure a comprehensive design solution. Additionally, we provide cost estimation and explore value engineering options, ensuring that the project remains within your budget without compromising on quality and design intent.

Stage 4

Planning Permission

At this stage, we focus on obtaining the necessary planning permission for your project. We prepare and submit the required documentation to the relevant local authorities, ensuring compliance with local regulations and guidelines. We work closely with planning officers, addressing any queries or modifications they may request. Our expertise in navigating the planning process ensures a smooth and efficient approval process, allowing the project to progress to the next stage.

Stage 5

Construction Drawings

With planning permission secured, we move forward with the preparation of detailed construction drawings. These drawings include comprehensive architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing details, providing precise instructions for the construction team. We pay meticulous attention to every aspect of the design, ensuring that all dimensions, materials, and finishes are accurately represented. These construction drawings serve as the roadmap for the contractors, facilitating smooth execution and minimizing potential errors during the construction phase.

Stage 6

Tender, Project Management, and Construction

Once the construction drawings are complete, we assist you in the tendering process, helping you solicit bids from reputable contractors. We evaluate the proposals received and provide our recommendations based on expertise, experience, and cost-effectiveness. With the contractor selected, we assume the role of project manager, overseeing the construction phase. We ensure that the project progresses according to schedule, monitor quality control, and address any design-related issues that may arise. Our on-site presence and regular communication with the construction team facilitate a seamless construction process.

Stage 7

Handover and Completion

As the construction nears completion, we oversee the final stages of the project. We conduct a detailed walkthrough, verifying that all design elements have been implemented to your satisfaction. We coordinate with the contractor to address any outstanding items and ensure that any required adjustments or final touches are made. Once the project meets our stringent quality standards, we facilitate the handover process, ensuring that you receive the keys to your completed space. We celebrate the successful realization of your project and provide any necessary support or guidance for post-construction needs.



 We create plans and reports for your planning application. We don't want to leave you without any of the necessary documentation, so we offer different levels of service depending on the complexity of your application. We will be available through every step of the application providing additional drawings, documents and visualisations where necessary. 


Our services are tailored to meet the foremost needs of those looking to design and/or construct residential and commercial projects from single story dream homes to multi-level buildings and commercial properties. We remain flexible in or approach and ensure that we adapt our services to each of our clients’ individual needs.

Project Managment
