Why Architects for Home?
Here are the main features of our service:
Specialists: We focus exclusively on the design of traditional home extensions, loft conversions, conservatories, internal alterations and garden buildings.
Professional: Our staff are fully qualified and insured architects, engineers and surveyors experienced in residential projects.
Experience: Over 35 years that we have been working on projects, we have built and developed an excellent working relationship with all local authorities, and consequently we are skilled at obtaining the necessary planning permission and Building Regulations approval.
Local: Since we are a network of local architects, engineers and surveyors we are always close at hand, and importantly, we are familiar with your local council’s regulations.
Efficient: We endeavour to complete the total package of designs, specifications and engineer’s calculations in 10 working days. However, most local authorities will take 6 – 8 weeks to grant approvals.
Complete: We provide everything for you, our client, to understand and agree the designs and everything required by the local authority to process your application and everything required by the builders to submit their prices and for the chosen builder to build according to modern building practices.
Individual: We recognise the individual nature of each client, so each design is unique to you.
User friendly: We carefully guide you through the project programme in steps from design to build; no professional jargon! See our typical programme stages and frequently asked questions.
Fixed fee: All our charges are on an “up front” fixed fee basis – no hidden extras, no additional hourly rates and no sliding scales.
The vast majority of our fee quotations are given during our initial telephone discussion. The more complex situations may require a site visit prior to submitting a fee proposal.
Price Guarantee: We will match or better any other reasonable fee proposal for a similar quality service.
Affordability: Since we operate on a “budget-no-frills-fixed-fee” basis, we remain one of the most competitive services available.
