Contemporary solutions interpreting a wide array and variation of materials. We do not work with a 'house style' and respond appropriately to each and every project. We are not designers of 'Themed' environments. (We leave this to the experts at Disneyland).

The variety and variation of building types/ technical requirements/ our clients/ assisting our clients in realising their ambitions/ offering vision and opportunity where none could be seen/ stretching a budget to ensure that the finished article looks like more than was spent.

I worked for many years as a freelancer designer in large design organisations and was frustrated that client's were often not being offered the best advice due to demands on resources. I established my first London design consultancy as a Partnership in 1998 to correct this! Later I set up Mass Designers in 2007 to exploit emerging opportunities that could not be fulfilled in my previous business.

Creative design interpretation.
Established business with quantifiable clients.
30+ years experience of building technology techniques.
Great value for money.
Typical value of projects that we work on range from £25,000 to £5,000,000

We can conduct initial consultations remotely either as audio or video (zoom/ teams/ facetime/ meet/ skype/ whatsapp/ telegram). Dependant on what existing information is available - refurbishment projects will inevitably require us to visit site to gain a full and comprehensive understanding. We will sugest that you video film a tour of the site/ project for our better understanding and discussions.

For each and every project we conduct our own Viral Transmission Risk Assessment (VTRA). For any meetings that we attend, we will adopt precautionery measures as recommended by Public Health England (subject to alteration March 2021). This has generally recommended Personal Protection Equipment including face masks and use of hand sanitiser, but may include hand, eye and footwear protection in addition.
We respectfully expect that clients and their team members shall adopt the same precautions.

Services

We provide the following stages of work for our clients:
*Outline Feasibility Design - exploratory sketches and basic layouts
*Conceptual design - ideas/ visuals/ materials and finishes palettes to approval
*Design Development - changes and review procedure for final approval
*Basic Information generation for Local Authority Consents (Conservation, Planning & Building Regulations) Landlord Consents, Licences and permissions
*Construction information and detailed design specifications for costing and implementation by contractors, including schedules and lighting designs
*Implementation - we act on your behalf as client 'guardians of design' to ensure that the project does not deviate from the agreed and approved design
*Quality Control - inspection and snagging at completion of project

We can prepare unique and appropriate design solutions to reflect your brief and project objectives using all our creative skills and experience.

An outline service, very much as an initial 'sketch exploration' to explore the viability of the scheme and identify any prohibitive issues that could affect progress and budgets.

This might typically provide the client with the basic drawing information required for submission to obtain formal consents for the project, from Landlords, Planning Authorities (including Conservation Groups) and in conjunction with applications for specilist Licences and/ or permits. Typically this information would comprise Existing and Proposed Plans, Elevations and Section drawings thatexplain the scheme together with descriptions and samples of proposed materials relavent to the consents.

We would provide all construction design information required together with specifications and schedules for the accurate costing and implementation of the project. This would typically include all details for specialist fabrication and bespoke items in various materials ncluding joinery and metalwork.
At this stage we would also prepare comprehensive lighting plans and any associated details.

During the construction period we attend site on behalf of the client to monitor progress and ensure that there is no deviation form the approved design.
We act as 'Design Guardians' on behalf of the client.
We also respond remotely to 'Requests For Information' (RFI's) that may be occasionally needed to assist progress on site.

We provide representation on behalf of the client at the end of the project to ensure that the best quality of finishing and implementation has been achieved in accordance with the approved design.
We shall also prepare a master snagging schedule at completion for execution by the contractors.
