Kick-Start Consultation
The Process

Once the consultation is arranged and the inital deposit is paid
The Kick-Start process will entail;

1. The Inital Consultation
One of our team will visit your home to discuss your ideas which will take between one and two hours.
It is a good idea to write down your thoughts and possibley collect images and ideas so that they are ready and top of mind when we meet.
We are really interested to understand and issues that you have with your current home such as accessability, warmth etc.
We also want to understand what your dreams and aspirations are for your home.
The more information that we can get at this stage the better, as this will be used to create the design brief that will be used throughout the design process.

2. Basic Survey
During the inital visit to you home, we will carry out a basic survey to allow basic plans to be drawn.
This is not a full measured survey, this will be required at a later date once the scheme progresses.
If you have any existing plans available, these would be most useful.

3. Design Team Intervention
This is where the magic happens….
We will pull together all of the information to develp the design brief into a solution to the problems and a roadmap to realising the potential of your property.

4. The Report
The output is a detailed report which includes everything that you need to know to move your project forward.
Initial Designs - Ball Park Costs - Programme - Planning Advice - Building Regulations Requirements
The balancing payment will be invoiced at this stage, and on recipt of the payment, the report will be issued.

5. Next Steps
The report will include details of the next steps and conclusions.
Once you have read and digested the information, you are then able to proceed with the next stage of the project.
We will attach out appointment docuemnts for the next stages whcih will include a ull breakdown of our fees.
