SUCCESSFUL AT OBTAINING PLANNING PERMISSION
We consider obtaining planning permission as part of the design process and approach it in much the same way - i.e. get as much information as possible, before making a decision. Assessing the feasibility of a project at the early stages can save a lot of time, money and heartache in the long run. Because of this approach we have enjoyed a very high success rate in obtaining planning permission.

3D VISUALISATION
3D visualisation is one of the great benefits of modern technology. We can display your project from all angles and give you a virtual tour around the interior or exterior. 3D visualisation has been extremely helpful in the planning process. Our team can produce a 3D visualization for any project - even if it's designed by another architect or structural engineer.

PHOTO MONTAGE
Incorporating a scaled 3D visualisation image into a photograph is a very powerful tool at the planning permission stages. It can transform abstract concepts into reality and help the client, architect, engineers, surveyors and planners truly understand how a development fits into the environment.

SHADOW STUDIES
We can feed in the GPS co-ordinates for anywhere in the world and can show you the shadow movements for any day of the year.

BUILDING REGULATION APPROVAL
Attention to detail is vitally important, not only to achieve Building Regulation approval, but also for smoother running of the build process. We produce the production drawings, schedules and specifications to accompany the designs.

SPECIALIST KNOWLEDGE OF TIMBER STRUCTURES
In the past we have worked with TRADA (Timber Research and Development Association) on the design of large clearspan timber structures. This led to the design of building systems and components for manufacturing companies. The knowledge and experience gained in this field has provided a phenomenal benefit in the way that we approach design. The structural and production knowledge not only enables us to design creative shapes but also keeps an eye on costs.

INNOVATOR / DESIGNER OF BUILDING SYSTEMS AND COMPONENTS CAPABILITY
One of our most successful system designs was for a demountable garden office. The design won an award with The Times Geistetner Digital Offices Collection. The office arrived in panel form with its own foundations, could slip through your front door and be created in one day complete with furniture - all you had to do was plug it in! A whole range of office buildings are in production.

Understanding design, realising your vision. Bringing concept to reality.
