What do you love most about your job?

Variety, Innovation and Value.
No two projects are the same, no two clients are the same.
Every project comes with what is often seen to be a set of problems: We start by simplifying the process to explore and unlock the solutions, opportunities, and potential within a project.
It is very rewarding for us to achieve success for our clients, especially in instances where issues have arisen between a Client and their Architect, the Planning Department (and similar) previously.
To be able to achieve the success rate we have at around 2/3 of the cost of our competitors gives us a great satisfaction, and our customers a great deal.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I began my career in Site Based roles (Construction and Civil Engineering).
Following a significant injury I decided to alter my career path towards Architectural Design, achieving a first class degree in Architectural Technology (BSc Hons).
Once qualified, it became very apparent very quickly that my combination of skills and experience was rare but extremely useful.
Knowing first hand how site based activities are undertaken, what the implications of a design based decision can be in terms of on-site operations, it is possible to “design out” certain pitfalls, increase speed and efficiency, and to better control project costs.
This was my niche, and to maximise its potential I realised I had to be a driving force in my own business as opposed to a “cog in the machine” of another organisation.

Why should our clients choose you?

We are a family business, with a wealth of experience in our industry.
We are not salespeople, there is no hard sell, just the promise of work carried out to a high standard, with a focus on value for money, if or when you want to proceed.
We conduct ourselves in a quietly confident way, and focus on getting results.
We offer great value for money, using modern Surveying and 3D modelling techniques to save time without comprimising on accuracy or the quality of the end product.
Our pricing structure is based on the national average for Architectural Services, minus around 33%. No hidden extras, we simply keep our overheads low and pass the savings on to our customers.

Hiring an architectural services firm is a great investment as it can help increase the value of your home.

The cost will vary not according to the size of your extension and new rooms but how many floors are being changed or added.

Costs will normally include the design advice, on-site survey, professional CAD drawings, drawing amendments, planning applications and planning revisions.

Your expert architectural services firm will be able to help make the changes you are looking for or create a new build. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a qualified architect today.

Here are some aspects that are important to consider when opting for an architectural services firm. It is important that the architect is registered and provide you with a portfolio of work with recent images. It is also recommended to complete a site visit where the architect might point out the particular features of that project.

Architects need to monitor the project throughout so it is also important that they have a good working relationship with experienced contractors.

Some architectural services firms only do international work. If you have a small project, you might want to consider a small firm that can give you its full attention.

Your local professional should work with you on your creative ideas and ensure that you get the best value for money for your budget.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local architectural services companies listed will help you build your dream home and give you peace of mind.

A building project might take just six months or a couple of years to complete. Make sure you choose an architecture firm that you will be comfortable working with for the long term.

You may meet an architect you like in the initial meeting phase but when the project gets underway, you may be working more closely with a different colleague. Make sure you know which individuals you will be working with throughout your project.

A side return extension is considered to be permitted development (PD). It does not need planning permission as long as the extension is within two metres of a boundary and the maximum eaves height is no higher than three metres.

Architectural services firms can provide complete drawing and design services, submit planning applications, check building regulations, undertake Structural Engineer calculations for loft conversions, extensions, internal alterations and new builds.

Architects also manage the entire process with the local authorities and should keep clients informed of the progress of their application along the way.
