How We Work
We work with you, as this is your home, not ours. We take your ideas and offer our own to provide you with the home you want and can afford to build and live in.
From the start we are considering the methods of building, heating and ventilating to give you a low energy home.
Many clients have clear ideas about the home they want, others need more ideas put to them. We have a back catalogue of past projects that we use to act as a prompt.
We need to consider the plot of land, the orientation of the home, so to maximise natural light and solar gain, any trees that may cause issues with foundations or providing shading. It is our job to bring all of this together, it isn’t just about drawing a pretty picture.
Once all of this has been decided we can then produce drawings for consideration.
Concept drawings are produced for amendment before the design is finalised ready to be submitted for planning.
At design stage, we can reproduce your home 3 dimensionally so that you are able to get a real ‘feel’ for the flow of the rooms and the size for the placement of furniture.
For Lifetime Homes, we ask you to consider making doorways wider to accommodate wheelchairs, even making space available for a lift to be installed in the future.
This is all about Futureproofing your home, so that you can remaining living there, no matter what happens.
Once planning is granted, we will then apply for Building Regulation Approval. The Building Regulations set out the requirements necessary to ensure a consistent and appropriate standard of health, safety, energy conservation and accessibility is achieved in building work, for both domestic and commercial proposals.
It is at this stage that we calculate the predicted energy performance of your new home and advise and provide effective recommendations for improving it. We will work with you and advise on the heating and ventilation specifications which provide you with a comfortable, cost effective home to live in.
Our homes are designed to meet & exceed the current building regulations to give you higher levels of comfort and save on energy costs. The systems we offer are already capable of meet the new ‘Future Homes’ specifications.
