What does our design and build service include?

Our design and build service is a turnkey solution for residential and commercial renovation work. With this service, we take care of every aspect of your renovation work, from establishing your initial vision, to bringing the space to life in accordance with the RIBA Plan of Work stages. The entire process is managed by our team of experienced architects, project managers and interior designers, and they’ll be guided by the ideas that you have for the space. We’ve outlined some of the most important aspects of this service below.

Start your design & build project with us


From the moment you enquire with us, you’ll work closely with one of our dedicated project managers. We establish a collaborative relationship at the start of every project, and we maintain it through to completion. Your project manager will take care of the complexities that come with your renovation on your behalf; they’ll work closely with our chartered architects and designers so you won’t have to worry about things like building regulations, planning applications, seeking listed building consent, or preparing a bill of quantities.

RIBA accredited design services

Our design and build service follows the principles outlined in the RIBA Plan Of Work, intended to ensure that the proposed renovation work aligns with key standards. This means that the final outcome of your project will be a space that is built for purpose, with provisions made for safety and sustainability.


Communication is at the core of our design and build service. We prioritise keeping you informed on the progress of your renovation, giving you clarity at every stage. This will involve providing cost certainty, and realistic timeframes for work completion.

Seamless site management

As well as our project managers, we also have dedicated site managers. They will liaise together, and your project manager will provide you with weekly progress reports and photograph updates from your site manager, giving you a real-time idea of how things are progressing, with weekly meetings available both on-site and via video call to answer any queries you may have. Upon project completion, your site and project manager will work together to identify any issues, solving any snags that have arisen, ensuring that your property is fully operational and ready for use.

Design and build procurement

With our design and build service, you’ll benefit from more efficient processes in relation to procurement for your project. Every aspect of your project will be our responsibility – from creating architectural designs to instructing subcontractors with our contract tendering capabilities. At the final stage of your project, we will ensure that final certificates have been acquired.

Interior design services

Our design and build service also includes access to specialist interior designers. They will outline approaches to create a bespoke aesthetic for your property, providing moodboards with detail on materials, products and suppliers.

Why choose our design and build service for your project?

With our design and build service, you can create the space that you’ve always wanted, with less hassle than traditional procurement methods. By taking this approach, every element of the project will be orchestrated by our team, giving you a seamless, stress-free experience. With experience in both residential and commercial properties, our work speaks for itself.
