About services as
Our Architectural Consultants oversee all planning and architectural aspects of a construction project including designing new buildings, design alterations to existing buildings and the restoration of old properties. As Architectural Consultant we will work closely with the client and other professionals including engineers and surveyors: we will be responsible for the final specifications and overall guidance and advice on a project. In some cases we offer services as Architectural Consultant and will be engaged to manage the project from beginning to end, working closely with construction specialists and builders on site.
Are you trying to raise interest as well as capital for a future project? Design Image Ltd can work with you to develop your dream at a reasonable cost. Our designers will be happy to design a home that matches your budget and requirements. Whether you need assistance with the purchase of land with or without planning consent, or whether you need us to bring your concepts to life with our video walkthroughs, we can help. Contact us to discuss how to partner up with us in your next venture.
We carry out a feasibility study for every client at an early stage to establish whether it is feasible to build the home of your choice, on your particular plot, for the funds available.
The Design & Materials feasibility study covers:
- A general assessment of your building plot and a discussion of your ideas
- An honest appraisal of the planning prospects
- The preparation of a brief to take account of design and budget requirements
- Two copies each of the front and rear elevations
- Two copies of the floor plans with amendments if required
- A detailed materials specification for the quality you are seeking to achieve
- Providing a costing for Design & Materials fully integrated service
- A summary of the feasibility study and realistic projection of the build cost
We fully realise that in the early stages few of you can afford to spend many thousands of pounds having a design drawn up and coasted. So over the years, we have developed a value for money, efficient feasibility study service, which in a short timescale provides you with your design, a realistic projection of the build costs and an honest appraisal of the likelihood of that design being granted detailed planning permission.
The usual procedure is for one of our experienced consultants to meet you on the site. They will discuss everything with you and establish the key factors. These include the site circumstances such as views and access, the type of home you have in mind, the specification and the planning situation. They will then agree with you a target floor area, a figure for the build costs and the build route which will enable you to achieve that target.
We would stress that our consultants are not sales representatives. They are experienced individuals who know and understand the business and the real selling they do is on your behalf by selling your design to the planners.
What does the feasibility study cost? The cost of a feasibility study depends on the size and complexity of the design but is typically between £600-£1000. The exact amount you will be charged will be confirmed at your site meeting when our consultant has assessed the level of work involved.
Some sites, particularly sloping, restricted or irregular shaped will require a survey and we can arrange this on your behalf, although the cost of this work is in addition to the feasibility study.
