I've never worked with an architect before and I am just not sure where to start, or how much will it cost ?

WHY NOT JUST GIVE ME A CALL, initial telephone consultation is FREE; we can discuss your situation and your requirements and I can provide initial advice on the best way for you to proceed.

IF YOU NEED MORE ASSISTANCE, I can provide a stand alone 'IDEAS VISIT' service;

A single flat rate fee of £100, allows me to visit you home or site and discuss your requirements and possible architectural solutions; this site visit is WITHOUT FURTHER COMMITMENT from you, with the £100 fee being refunded to you as a discount on any future architectural service.

The 'IDEAS VISIT' allows me to provide you with a written estimate of possible following services, NO further works are possible without your acceptance of my written fee proposal; my fee proposals are broken in to stages, for you to instruct each phase and have the option to walk away upon settlement of fees for any prior stages of work.

I never proceed any additional works without your prior approval.

The AIM of my service is to identify YOUR needs and then DELIVER the appropriate level of architectural service to suit your TIMESCALE and BUDGET.

My experience during more than 25 years of practice ranges across large and small scale works for private clients, small businesses, national companies and agencies and international corporations.

I believe that a successful architectural commission comes from listening to the requirements of the client and applying my own experience of procuring built solutions that focus on meeting and where possible exceeding those requirements.

Domestic or Commercial, Private Individuals or Companies, for an Architectural Service or just advice, contact me and see if I can help.
