Build the home you want - with us as your project partner


The dream home you imagine can become a reality

“Designing, planning and building with clients who have the vision to create something new is a wonderful prospect. Being side-by-side for the creation of a home that develops their vision and turns the first sketch they ever made of their dream home into reality, never stops being exciting.”
Trevor Weeks, Managing Director

Building a home from the ground up is an exciting prospect – often a once in a lifetime opportunity.

We partner with our clients to take care of the planning and designing, to ensure regulations are met and the best opportunities are explored to give you all you want from your new home.

We work with self-builders, private individuals and small developers, usually building over single or double plots on green land, brownfield sites, in gardens or replacing an existing sub-standard property with a new one.

Our expertise lies in creating designs from the beginning of the planning process, but we do also work with clients to revise previous, inherited or failed planning applications too, using out knowledge, expertise and liaison with the local authority planning team to reach a successful planning outcome.

With you every step of the way

We offer complete architectural planning and design to turn the ideas in your head, first into a virtual model then into your new home, project managing every element with you.

Our advanced BIM (Building Information Modelling) software allows you to see your designs on a large screen – ‘walk through’ and ‘walk around’ your new home from all perspectives – both inside and out.

Make changes in real time to explore design options and planning solutions. Explore options and visually appreciate their effect to light, space and ultimately, to cost.

“Right from the beginning, we were always told what the plan was: there were no surprises.”

Our experience in working with local authorities means that we can navigate planning and regulations more easily, which gives a faster process; we won’t push planning applications through that need huge adjustment or compromise in order to be accepted.

Keeping you on budget

Budget is important to us and our clients too – every single detail is costed and changes reflected in new plans accurately, so that at all times, you know the cost of the project; we don’t like surprises any more than you do!

For some clients who initially wanted to renovate their home, we suggest a demolition and rebuild – because it’s often more cost-effective, gives them exactly what they want and is a better use of the budget as far as VAT is concerned. (Read our blog ‘7 reasons to knock down your house and start again’).

We work with you to bring your vision to life, managing the project alongside you from the first brick to the final touches.

“We often talk about the house and how lucky we feel to live here. There’s nothing really about the house that we would change.”
