Stage 3 - Construction Pack
Your Construction Pack contains detailed technical drawings. We will integrate the structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing disciplines into coherent and detailed reports as well as providing build costs and the management of the Tender process.
We would recommend our Supporting Services E- G are undertaken during Construction Pack (Stage 3).
Technical Design Meeting - The Construction Pack commences once the design has been finalised. You will meet with your Technical Designer to run through all your chosen specifications. The design sessions can be provided at your home or in our design studios enabling you to connect with your design team when necessary.
Technical Integration - Technical collaboration is vital, not only to ensure our design meets all the regulatory consents and permissions, but also to connect all the relevant areas of expertise involved in the project. Typically we will consult with structural engineers, surveyors, building control, suppliers and specialist consultants, meeting with each and consulting with them on your design ensuring that everyone is in agreement.
Draft Technical Report - The Draft Technical Report is the first look at the complete drawing set. This will enable you to check off all the specification and how it is integrated within the intended design features. Your technical drawings will include updated and finalised reports from your Home Design Pack, such as; Building Envelope, Core Services and Key Zones.
Technical Take Off - Once fully modelled we are able to create an item by item quantity take-off. This will detail all of the relevant specifications, sizes, lengths, locations, quantities and supplier details. All of these elements are crucial in terms of obtaining accurate quotations and includes details such as, bricks and mortar, new boiler, kitchen worktop, etc.. We have developed a structure that is understood by contractors and householders alike and delivers a tender document that gives you confidence in the quotes you receive.
Building Control Submission - Once the technical report and the technical details are completed the drawings are issued to Building Control for review. This includes the Architectural, Structural and MEP drawing set. Building Control will ensure that your project is built to the correct standard. Liaising with them from the beginning we can ensure that any amendments are made quickly and accurately.
Tender Support - We have created a builder network of trusted contractors with good references. Once your drawings are ready for tender we will organise visits with local contractors at your convenience. The relevant documentation will be sent to the contractors to ensure they understand your project before they meet with you. We will ensure your tenders are completed in a timely manner and review them to help you with your decision. In addition we will support with the scheduling of works and the signing of contracts.
