Stages of Design

So how do we work with you and deliver your project..? We have to say we want to work on a human level with the people when delivering their project, we love to meet our clients in the flesh and in advance of starting any project, it makes it so much easier to know who we are talking to and working for and with, rather than just a name over the phone or email.

We initially provide a price to deliver the structural or civil engineering, be that design calculations and/or drawings.

Initial Site Visit

Initial Site Visit

Site Visit

We come and visit the site and/or building to understand the layout, if required we will ask for trail pits to be dug in advance to allow us to assess the ground and advise if any further specialist design input will be required.

Part-Constructed

preliminary design

Based on the architects drawings and the information gained from the site visit we will provide a scheme design, covering material solutions and method of construction.

This allows for a feedback process into the design and ensures we have understood the architectural vision, and also allows for a stage of changes, as the design may highlight unseen issues at early planning with the architect.

Final Project

Following on from the feedback a final set of design calculations are then produced for Building Control submission. Sketches, CAD drawings or a Revit model is then generated to provide suitable information to allow the builder/contractor to work from to deliver the project on site.

Site Visit

No matter the nature of the project, we always need to understand the project, this involves visiting your project

 Preliminary Design

Think of this as getting to understand the potential solutions that can be provided, it gives you an understanding of the consequences of the project. This can involve material type, within this we normally provide mark-ups, and sketches and typical details if they are applicable.

 Final Design

This is the point where we provide a final solution, that you submit to building control and send to your builder, from which they can then construct/modify the building from.
