3   Developing

We specialise in the design and planning of house extensions, house refurbishment, internal alterations and the design and construction of complete new houses. We work with our clients to expand their ideas, ensuring the most efficient use of space, while maintaining the structural stability and architectural integrity of their home.

4   All projects are important

We offer a personal design service which is far beyond simple plan drawing or 'pictures'.  Once we have established the brief, we work with you to ensure your ideas and aspirations are achieved in every detail. We will combine your ideas with our expertise to develop a scheme you will be happy with. Not only will you receive a customised design, we will also ensure your design passes the planning and building regulation approval processes.
