Commercial Services

Multi-disciplinary working is at the heart of what we do in order to ensure we have found the best solution for our clients.

Design | Feasibility

A feasibility study or options appraisal is a fantastic opportunity to explore the potential of your property.  Perhaps you have in mind what your building needs to deliver and you just need to sense check whether what you have in mind works financially, structurally or is likely to gain consent from the local authority.

Or maybe you have a great asset, but want to understand what the options are for optimising its potential.  Whatever your needs we are experienced in undertaking both feasibility studies and options appraisals to ensure that you can get the best out of your asset.  We can provide a structured report with outline options drawings, liaise with local authorities and other specialists and draw up cost estimates for implementation and future maintenance.  We will ensure that we work with you to create a report that works for you, if you have an internal approval process we can contribute to business planning and investment appraisals in order to help ensure that the figures stack up.

Design | Architecture

From new builds to conversions, we have in-house expertise to develop plans, elevations or 3D visuals for your schemes.  We understand that a successful final scheme is a result of a strong collaborative approach with the client and any other consultants.  We know that behind a client is very often a team of other interested parties and we will work with them and undertake consultations with end users in order to ensure that the final designs tick all of the boxes.  Within our team we have experience in renewables and sustainability and can ensure that final proposals consider the future operational costs of the building.

You can take our services as far as you wish; feasibility, to planning or all the way through to completion.  From a single dwelling to an apartment building or a small commercial unit to a mixed-use development, we can work with your brief to develop an innovative scheme that works with your budget.
