Thank you for your enquiry – we will be in touch as soon as we can.
Project timescales and costs
We work closely and intensively with our clients so that we can deliver the best possible result. The other side to this, of course, is that we can only take on a manageable number of projects at any one time.
We really value all the enquiries we are privileged to receive and in all cases we look to help as much as we can. We also look to make sure that there is the best possible fit between our clients’ needs and what we can provide.
On some projects, we are simply not the architects you need. If this is the case, we will let you know – and suggest an alternative solution that better meets your needs.
The projects we work on typically cost upwards of £100,000, a significant but realistic investment – this blog post explains more.
Our commitment is to always be honest and let you know the likely budget as well as giving you visibility on when we might actually be able to schedule your project. We are focused on avoiding any surprises for our clients.
If we think a project is a good fit, we will get in touch to arrange a telephone conversation. After this conversation, if we both agree, we will arrange to visit your site and talk through your project ‘on the ground’.
For most projects, by the end of this meeting, we will have a strategy for your project and know that it is broadly feasible for the budget available. Afterwards, we will write up our discussions and send it to you as a formal document. The site visit and document are both free of charge and without obligation.
On larger or more complex projects, we undertake what we call Testing the Principle. This is a separate, chargeable piece of work that assesses the strength of the project and allows you to make an informed decision about how to take it to the next stage.
Thank you once again for your enquiry – we will be in touch soon.
