BUILDING CONSULTANCY

We work on various types of projects for our clients, ensuring that everyone can benefit from home improvements that enhance their way of life. Using our 25 years of experience, we guide you through the process from beginning to end, making sure you are completely satisfied with the outcome and love your property. We work a little differently from other architectural designers – our remit extends far beyond drawing up designs. At Wilson Architectural Building Designs our services include planning, finding a contractor, monitoring building work… you name it, we can help. We want you to benefit from our experience.

We help people with building projects all day, every day, and we can deal with any situation that we come across. We’ll be more than happy to discuss your project.

BUILDING CONSULTANCY

You’ve got your plans and planning approval, now it’s time to find your trusted construction professionals.
We’ll guide you through the various steps and complete parts of the process on your behalf:

SETTING UP THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

Third-Party Services are compulsory to every build and must be addressed well before you start building. We set up everything that you will need to have in place ahead of your build. This includes Thames Water build over agreements, Health & Safety CDM, structural calculations, building control services and party wall matters. We know what services you need from day one and can advise on all.

SUPPLYING A BUILDER’S QUESTIONNAIRE

Whilst you are waiting for planning consent we recommend you find your building contractors. If you are a domestic client we can provide a builder’s questionnaire for contractors to fill in. If followed, this document will ensure your building meets expectations and safeguards your investment. The questionnaire ensures good communication so both parties know what to expect from each other from the outset. It contains valuable questions that need to be answered by your potential Building Contractor and includes templates of work schedules, payment plans. This is in addition to a tender and isn’t offered by other architectural designers, allowing you to make an informed decision.

SETTING UP THE TENDERING PROCESS

We can advise you on the tendering process, giving you the support you need to ensure you are fully informed before you instruct your building contractor. We can also provide guidance and advice on products such as bi-fold doors, kitchens and bathrooms, so you can be sure you know what you are getting from the start.

CONSTRUCTION AND SITE MONITORING

The build begins, and your project starts coming to life. Unlike many other architectural designers we continue working with you through this part of the process to give you added confidence.

SITE VISITS

Big building projects can be daunting for anyone. We understand the construction industry and will conduct site visits during the build, checking that your project is running to schedule and your contractors are sticking to your plans. This helps ensure the quality of your build.

BEING YOUR EYES AND EARS

Having major building work carried out on your property is never easy, and you might feel like you’re losing track of the many details. We help keep an eye on progress and we will be happy to examine a builder’s schedule of works and ask technical questions on your behalf.

SITE MONITORING

During our site visits we will ensure that contractors are working safely and respectfully on your property. This helps to protect your property and possessions. We have 25 years of experience in the construction industry so we will hold your contractors to account.
