Sketch Design Stage

Most projects will have multiple possible solutions to your brief. We will present several deliberations for discussion by way of sketches that will contain different ideas and approaches. Sometimes dismissing ideas is as important as finding the right idea. We will then talk through these sketches with you to arrive at a design concept that can be developed further for the various approvals that are generally required.

At this stage we can assist in obtaining a preliminary cost advice if required. Also depending on the project scale, additional professional consultant(s) engagement may be needed to develop aspects of the design for things like town planning advice, structural and civil engineering and landscape design. We shall advise you on their appointment and then coordinate their contributions.
