There’s no cut-and-dried answer; we’ll gather information from you when we first talk, before giving you an idea.
What you need and want from your home depends on your lifestyle and ambitions. Whether you have family considerations, you need more space, or you want to invest in your most personal asset, everybody differs. We tailor each and every project to the person – or family – in front of us.
So the timeline for each project depends. What we can say, is that during our initial discovery process, we’ll talk to you to understand your requirements. This will give us an indication of how long things will take. We’ll communicate with you clearly and honestly, so that you’re aware of the timescales from the outset. If you’re working to a deadline, we’ll let you know if any services can be overlapped.
If it looks like there could be delays, we’ll do our best to alert you in advance. We’ll provide a project programme indicating where flexibility is needed. We’ve 17 years of experience in residential architecture, so we’re used to anticipating hiccups!
Examples of things that can affect a project programme:
- Applying for planning and other legislative submissions
- Party wall or license to alter negotiations
- Complex designs or difficult site conditions
- Unknowns – things found on site when work begins
- Changes to the brief
The unexpected can occur; the most important thing, is not to worry. As architects we’re trained to solve problems. And with an experienced in-house team of seven, plus a wide network of specialists to call upon, there aren’t many hurdles that we can’t find a way over, under or around.
If you’re thinking of extending, remodelling or building a new home, get in touch. We might not have an answer straight away; however, we’d be happy to sit down with you and hear your ideas. From there, we can give you an estimate as to how long the project will take.
