The Process Test

We remove the stress, as we are qualified and experienced in Design, Documentation, and the Construction Stages of your project.

We can advise you through Site Assessment and Property Selection at the initial stage. We will then facilitate the Town Planning and Building Approval Processes in the background, whilst we work through a Design Process that allows you to see your dream become a reality.

The Design Process is fundamental in allowing us to understand how you would like to live, and explore how your family may grow and develop within your new home.

From this point in the Design Process the concept for the home evolves, it incorporates a site specific environmental response, addresses town planning and heritage criteria and the concept of the design is evaluated within the budget.

With our academic background and extensive practical experience we come from an informed basis working with traditional styles and materials to craft your dream home.

Following on from the Design Process, the Construction Drawings+ Specification, are complete and ready for Competitive Open Tendering. A Tender Process allows free market pricing to give you best value for your choice of quality.

Our Project Management Service allows us to take the stress out of the build, by managing the construction stage for you. We are happy to work with your choice of other Professionals such as Interior Designers, Cabinet Makers, Landscapers or other Consultants that you desire.

The Client and Consultant team relationship is extremely important to achieve your dream home. An example recently featured in House and Garden Magazine where the team included Highgate House and Wyer + Craw (click the Hamilton project tab to see more).
