Building Project Brief

Building Consultancy & Building Project Management

From high end conversions to the renovation of historic buildings and the design and build of new homes, our building consultants see beyond an initial project brief.

We actively seek out opportunities to add value to our clients’ assets while applying the highest standards of innovation to UK-wide construction projects.

Bespoke properties, country houses and listed buildings:

We have built a reputation for our work on some of the finest listed buildings and country houses in the UK, but also have considerable expertise in creating, enhancing or extending bespoke properties. Where appropriate, we use traditional building methods and materials to preserve and enhance historic and business significance. We also work in conservation areas across the UK.

From indoor swimming pools to basement conversions:

We work with the best designers, craftsmen and suppliers to deliver all types of construction and property renovation projects. Whether building your own ‘grand design’, adding a cinema room,  wine cellar, indoor pool or gym, our project managers translate our clients’ vision into exciting, economically viable spaces.

Building surveys and inspections:

Buying the right property is the vital first step towards creating a new home. Our pre-acquisition surveys and inspections on all property types, including London townhouses and rural estates, ensure our clients know what they are buying and the costs of any necessary repairs, maintenance or remedial work. We can also act as expert witness. 

Architecture and planning:

Whether drawn up for a historic building where the latest conservation techniques are required or for a completely individual modern residence, our in-house architects produce high quality, energy-efficient designs. We also have considerable expertise in converting barns or outbuildings to alternative uses. The team will also work with local planners to ensure planning permissions are granted.

Project management for new buildings, refurbishment, extension and improvement:

    • Assembling the design and construction team
    • A single point of contact throughout the process
    • Contract administration
    • Planning, party-wall and building control advice
    • Overseeing final sign-off and remedying any defects

Energy efficiency

We can provide expert advice on adopting energy-efficient technologies to create comfortable, efficient and environmentally friendly homes.
