One of our particular attributes is our unrivaled expertise in producing 3 dimensional building modeling at the concept / planning stages of a project. We design and draw buildings using state of the art CAD technology, not as two-dimensional drawings. This gives us the ability to produce lifelike virtual reality three-dimensional images of your project before any work is done on site. You will be able to appreciate the finished appearance as the earliest design stage and this provides a powerful tool in assisting Planners, Committee’s and the general public’s understanding of how the project will look. They are very persuasive!
We are probably better known for large scale projects but are also committed to providing the same first rate, personal service, for domestic projects – whether it is a completely new house, an extension, a conversion, or a simple alteration.
First and foremost, we strive to inject everything we undertake with Quality - from the concept, through the design and drawings, down to the smallest detail.
This approach drives all we undertake by seeking to provide the best solution for our Client to the highest quality commensurate with their budget, brief and aspirations
We believe that buildings ought to provide for the function with the form deriving from and expressing the function - but at the same time possess joy, delight and respond to the contextual setting of the site. We therefore do not have a ‘house style’ because different settings generates a style respecting the context.
As a result all our projects have real human scale, with sensitive use of materials, and a wide range of styles.
We believe that careful and creative design produces buildings whose whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
In addition, we provide a commercial view which extends to recommending alternative procurement routes, if project needs suggest, which can provide cost savings.
Our objective is to get the "job done", fulfilling our Client's brief on time and within budget. We listen and learn from our Client's needs and hopes. We don’t impose a preconceived solution, but respond to our Client’s objectives by creative interpretation. Our role is as leaders within a Team and this is echoed within our internal organization.
Our co-operative approach extends to projects where we work together with our associated U.K practices.
The ultimate aim, on completion of the project, is to provide for our Clients’ needs and enhancing their daily life by design. While at the same time achieving a building that is a pleasure to use, a delight for our Client and to those who enjoy the benefits.
