Our services

We offer an initial consultation with all clients. This enables both the client and ourselves to meet face to face, we then listen.. One of the most important factors in the design process is listening and understanding our clients’ needs and requirements. Once we have a firm understanding of our clients brief and budget requirements, we can begin to provide feedback and useful suggestions in how best to maximize space.

Each client and each scheme is unique and individual. Following on from the initial consultation we provide accurate fee proposals, not only for our design services but also any 3rd party fees that need to be taken into account, such as planning fees, building regulations fees, structural engineers fees etc. This way all clients are aware of all the necessary costs prior to any work commencing.

Our approach

Telling client’s, the number of projects completed, or collective years of experience has become the obligatory reassurance that says: “you are in safe hands”. The cornerstone of our approach is direct contact between you, your team and us.

A dedicated team with specific experience that is relevant to your project, will work with you to ensure you achieve a totally individual and appropriate design to meet your needs. This approach has given us an enviable reputation for client satisfaction and repeat commissions.

From the initial discussion to the presentation of concepts, site visits and, production of detailed information and management of ongoing delivery, you will see a familiar face, have regular direct contact and know that you are only one call away from an answer.

How We Work

Once appointed, PJH Architectural Services would look towards 5 simple stages: –

Stage 1 & 2 – Initial Consultation and Measured Survey

A critical first step’ meeting, face to face, allows the client the opportunity not only to glean the array of ideas that PJH Architectural Services can provide, but just as importantly, gives the client the opportunity to meet one of our qualified team members.

It’s an important decision choosing a design partnership that can not only portray your ideas in a clear and concise format, but also finding a designer that you can feel at ease with and feel confident that your requirements will be looked after, with your best interests at heart.

An initial consultation gives you, ‘the client’ the opportunity to provide a brief of your requirements. We can then discuss how best to approach your project and the necessity of any planning and building regulations input.

On instruction to proceed with your design, PJH Architectural Services will complete a
full measured survey of your existing property, this will form the basis of your initial design proposals. Initial design sketches are then issued to you for your review and comment.

Stage 3 – Planning

Once your design is finalised, we will deal with all the necessary planning documentation and submissions. Planning applications are accompanied by a set of your clear and concise detailed floor plans and elevations along with site location plans, both existing and proposed.

Drawings issued for client comment.

Submission and liaison with Local Authority.

Stage 4 – Detailed building regulations

Once planning is granted, we commence your detailed building regulations drawings. These consist of detailed floor plans with accurate setting out for all brickwork, window/door openings, sets of detailed elevations and roof plans, detailed cross sections and a full material specification.

We deal with all the necessary applications and submissions via an approved building inspector. We have a very close working relationship with an approved building inspector who we use on the majority of our projects, the advantage to this is cost, speed of approvals and ease of use on site for you and more importantly your builder.

In addition, we issue your drawings to the structural engineer for his input & review, in order for him to provide his fee proposal based on the proposed works.

These detailed building regulations drawings form part of your tender package of drawn information that can be passed onto your tendering builders for their accurate tender price. In addition they can form a contractual agreement between yourself and your chosen builder throughout your building works.

Stage 5 – Tender Process

We can assist with choosing the most suitable builders to suit your proposed works. We offer a tender process that consists of issuing selected builders with cover letters, all detailed drawings and a scope of works/requirements that outline proposed tender return dates and anticipated start on site dates, as well as requesting relevant insurance documents, references and examples of builders work that can be viewed in person (something that we would always recommend).

Stage 6 – Commencement of Works and Site Supervision

Dependant upon the scope of works and complexity of the design, we offer a site supervision package tailored to your specific needs. This not only provides the comfort of a watchful eye on the works carried out, but also provides you with regular site reports detailing progress of work, workmanship quality and programme tracking. It also ensures that there is a professional relationship between yourself and the builder via PJH Architectural Services Ltd.

Regular site attendance to review and monitor progress and workmanship.

Continued email and telephone support throughout the construction phase.
