Stage 2 - Home Design pack
Your Home Design Pack enables you to make the most important decisions in a clear, personal and controlled way.During this stage we will develop and explore various design options from your concept design in your Creation Pack.
Model Projects will support the design development by recommending suppliers, products and specifications. Our reports are perfectly tailored to enable you to communicate with suppliers to gain like for like quotations for each aspect of your project efficiently. We also assist with your specification development and choices by arranging viewings, quotations, site visits and samples if required. Reviewing options in design at this stage can help eliminate unexpected costs later.
Your Home Design Pack concludes with your dream home fully resolved, pulling together your personally selected product and material catalogues, within clear budget allowances.
Detailed Design Meeting & Report - Working with your Architectural Designer you will embark on a journey through the creative process. The design sessions are provided in your home, locally in our design studios or via telephone. This will enable you to connect with your design team when needed. The Detailed Design stage allows you to make any spatial or financial alterations from your Creation Pack. The report will consist of more detailed 3D sectional cut-throughs alongside conventional drafting styles.
Build Cost Estimate - An expanded Build Cost Estimate ensures full visibility and control of costs throughout the design development process. This detailed version not only allows you to see a clear financial breakdown of your project, but also holds written specification of all your chosen products and materials. Your Build Cost Estimate will be ongoing throughout the Home Design Pack and updated as you continue to specify all the elements of your home.
Building Envelope Report - This breakdown document allows you to review each window, door, and rooflight in terms of function, price, aesthetic and supplier limitations. It is also important to finalise these external elements prior to the structural design. Our expert experience will guide you through this decision making process, providing control and insight into the options for your home.
Planning Application - Planning permission is an integral and influencing factor with regards to your home design. Once your external building envelope and layout have been confirmed we will submit and manage your Planning Application, liaising with your Local Authority to ensure we get the right result.
Power and Lighting Report - Lighting design is an essential element of any domestic renovation, conversion or new build project. Lighting helps bring to life key features of the house and garden. As part of the Power & Lighting report we work alongside our clients to explore and develop the layout and schedule for both lighting and power. This incorporates general ambient lighting to specific light, alongside key zones.
Key Zones Report - Using internal 3D images, detailed plans and budget allocations, we develop the layout and specification of the most important spaces of your home; namely kitchens and bathrooms. We will review the internal specifications of your home, including heating (zoning of underfloor heating areas), flooring, along with finishes to coordinate with the decor.
