Design & Specification

Design and Specification

We have extensive experience of designing and specifying new and remedial work to Residential and Commercial property. Because of our experience we are able to provide many of our clients Design and Specification needs.

Specification and Design – We are equipped with a range of technical design and specification software and are able to offer a design and drafting service along with providing NBS specifications which can be integrated into standard contract forms. The use of such software and standardised specification clauses ensures that all of our design work is delivered to the highest and most up to date technical and performance standards.

Remedial and Alteration Works – One of our specialist areas is in undertaking remedial and alteration works to existing buildings. This is often motivated by a need to remove risk, improve compliance or increase the sustainability of buildings. We regularly advise on the requirements of the Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Sector) (England and Wales) Regulations and Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards. Much of our current alteration works involve improving buildings in this respect and we would be happy to advise you on this issue.

Extensions and Fit-out to Existing Buildings – We welcome enquiries into potential extensions or fit-outs to existing buildings. Our experience includes providing design and other services for office fit-out, commercial extension and residential extension projects. We are aware of the need to comply with a wide variety of legislation including planning, building control and protected status statute. Complying with this legislation, common law or to fit-out standards such as those published by the British Council for Offices is a priority and we can be trusted to deliver this.

Design of New Structures – Although we are not an Architecturally led service we are able to offer design services for residential and less complex commercial buildings. We are also well connected to a number of Architects who have experience in varying types of work and where we are unable to provide a service to our clients we are happy to make appropriate referrals to other businesses. The connections we have allow our clients to establish strong and rewarding relationships with professionals who are capable of delivering even the most complex commercial project.
