Initial meeting: RIBA work stage 1
The design process begins with a careful discussion with you in order to begin to form the project brief. Expect to be asked lots of questions about your requirements and aspirations for the project in addition to budget constraints, time constraints etc. These questions help the brief to evolve and also form an invaluable tool which we revisit and update as the project progresses and learning more about your specific needs.
Concept Design: RIBA work stage 2
Initial sketch options are prepared to explore how various design solutions may best answer your brief. The brief is revisited and updated if necessary.
Developed Design: RIBA work stage 3
The concept design is developed further and in more detail with you through detailed discussion about each aspect of the design. Drawings, material samples and 3D rendered views are produced which illustrate the qualities of the proposed layouts and spaces. The Planning Application is typically submitted at the end of this stage.
Technical Design RIBA work stage 4
The progression of the design from planning drawings to a fully developed scheme, involves more detailed drawings and accompanying schedules describing the works. The Structural Engineers input is further refined and forms part of a package that will enable accurate prices to be provided for construction. Patrick Crowe Architects can assist by identifying suitable builders and assessing prices returned. Building Regulation submissions are made during this stage.
Construction and Handover: RIBA work stage 5-6
During construction works, site visits are regularly undertaken to see that work is proceeding in accordance with the designs and also to help solve any problems that may arise. Payment claims will be assessed against construction progress. Following completion of the construction stage, a final inspection is undertaken and any rectification works required are addressed.
In Use: RIBA work stage 7
A new stage in the process, Patrick Crowe Architects will remain in contact with you after the construction works have completed and, when convenient to you, meet to review and evaluate both the finished project and the process to achieve it.
A broad range of projects are undertaken, spanning in scale and type, encompassing:
Sustainable design, Planning and Building Regulation Applications, New builds, renovations, extensions, loft conversions, internal reconfigurations
