We offer a competitively priced, friendly and professional service that is tailored to suit your individual needs.


After an initial meeting with you to discuss the project and scope of works, we will draw up an itemised fee proposal.  This will provide the fees for each stage of the process, give you an idea of the timetable involved, and list other consultants that may be required.  Some stages may be optional.  Work will usually commence within a few weeks of your instruction to proceed.

Please do get in touch to discuss your project – we  typically provide an initial consultation without charge.

At every stage of the process we will work closely with you to ensure that your needs are met.  We will initially have discussions to formulate a brief, then investigate the site and locality, with the aim of understanding the physical context, including opportunities and constraints.  We will also analyse any relevant material including policy documents and guidance.  During the design process we will give every detail our utmost care and attention.  We will review the design with you at each stage to ensure that everything is moving in the right direction.

Our approach typically involves consulting with others during the process – whether neighbours, the community, planners, or interest groups – to ensure a successful outcome.  We will also collaborate with other consultants as required for each project.  Our contacts include engineers, surveyors, landscape architects, environmental consultants, energy assessors and arboricultural consultants, who we can liaise with on your behalf throughout the process as necessary. We are also used to selecting and dealing with contractors.
