Ascot Design Stages

We listen to our clients, discovering and defining their requirements and aspirations for the site and ensuring that all their needs and ambitions are met. 

We transform their ideas into concept designs, which are presented face to face so that they can provide feedback. Designs are refined until complete satisfaction is achieved. 

It is this collaborative process that enables us to fine tune each element of the design so that our clients receive the perfection they deserve. Once ready, planning permissions are submitted.

Ensuring that any planning conditions are met, we add detail to planning level designs so as to construct the shell and core elements of the building.

We coordinate any external consultants and specialists required to complete the detailed design including; Structural Engineers, Landscape Architects, Mechanical & Electrical Consultants, Interior Designers etc.  All of this information is included in our complete architectural drawing package including; site maps, roof plans, floor plans, elevations, specifications and more.

The final collation of design information is then used by contractors throughout the build and includes our assistance during the construction.  

During this phase we also lead the process of obtaining Building Regulations conditional approval.

A list of potential tenderers is then formulated, normally 4-6 contractors sourced from reputable firms we have worked with for many years. We respond to all production information required by the tenderers and shortlist 3 contractors for our client’s consideration.

We then produce a detailed tender report that provides commentary on the shortlisted contractors and enables value engineering to ensure delivery of the best product within budget. Interviews are held and one contractor is formally appointed.

As Contract Administrators, we carry out regular site visits throughout the project to ensure that the work carried out is in compliance with the building contract.

During this stage, we organise and chair regular project meetings to report and monitor progress against the construction program and contract. We are on hand to support contractors and answer any queries in order to prevent any delays in construction.

Finally, we review the project, carrying out final checks to ensure that the finished construction has met or exceeded the expected standard. Once we are satisfied, we hand over to our client with a Practical Completion Certificate, giving them peace of mind that the building is safe, has been built in line with their design and complies with statutory requirements.
