A profile of the services I offer
The first thing I do is to listen!

Each Client will be looking for a solution to their unique requirements, and I make every effort to define what is wanted in order to satisfy those needs.

My services are completely flexible, and I will provide as much or as little assistance as necessary. The full scope of my professional expertise is set out below, but this may be considered a ‘menu’ from which you may pick the stages you desire.

  1. Preparation of measured dimensional surveys of buildings, or arranging for land surveys.
  2. Discussions to determine Client requirements, the ‘brief’, which is used to begin design. This may include meetings or discussions with Local Authorities or the Mairie and DDE in Stage B in the RIBA plan of work, part stage APS in France.
  3. Preparation of design options or alternatives, for consideration by the client. Stage C in UK, part stage APS in France, then stage APD.
  4. Preparation of design proposals for submission to the Planning Authorities for Statutory Consents. In the UK these are generally planning and building regulation approvals, in France generally permis de construire.
    Stages D and E in UK, stage DPC in France.
  5. Preparation of construction documentation in the form of drawings and schedules of work or specifications, to allow pricing by contractors. Negotiation of construction prices.
    Stages F, G, H in UK, stages PCG and AMT in France.
    Contract management and construction inspections, valuation and certification.
    Stages J and K in UK, stages PGC and AMT in France.
  6. All stages of work may be undertaken in part, as part of other services or in isolation as may be required by the Client. Every project is unique, and I will vary the scope and detail of each work stage as may be necessary.

My professional responsibilities are to provide my Clients with all guidance necessary from initial design to completion of the building. This must be in response to the Client’s brief, which will comprise physical, aesthetic and budgetary requirements.

During the construction process, my responsibility will be to ensure that the works are undertaken in a safe and practical manner by competent builders, periodically monitoring the work to ensure that it complies with the specification and drawings describing the design.
