Stage 3 - Construction Pack
Your Construction Pack is the consolidation of all of the key stakeholders, alongside thorough analysis of each, in terms of the three core disciplines; architectural, structural and MEP (Mechanical / Electrical / Plumbing).
The final product will be a highly intelligent pack of drawings, incorporating all of the information derived from your supply chain and key consultants, such as engineers, surveyors, planning consultants, in order to ensure we meet the relevant regulations, consents and permissions.
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 confirmed and locked down. You will meet with your Technical Designer to run through all your chosen specifications. The design sessions are provided in the comfort of your own home, locally in our design studios or online in our virtual meeting rooms enabling you to connect with your design team wherever and whenever you want
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 on the same page
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 report will include updated and finalised reports from your Home Design Pack, which you will have been working through in order to specify all elements of your project including: Building Envelope, Core Services and Room Logs
Technical Take Off - This is where the power of Home Model Technology coupled with our meticulous design process and modelling skill bear their fruit. Once fully modelled we are able to create an item by item quantity take-off which details all of the relevant specifications, sizes, lengths, locations and quantities of all items within your project, from the amount of bricks and mortar in your extension to the kitchen worktop and who it is being supplied by. 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 Drawings - This is the coming together of the knowledge we have gleaned and the finalisation of the key disciplines in your drawings set. A highly intelligent, informative and easy to understand set of drawings, set out in a structure that facilitates all of the key disciplines and share of knowledge throughout the design. This includes the Architectural, Structural and MEP drawing set.
Tender Support - We have created a recommended builder network, assembling teams of trusted contractors that come highly recommended. Once your drawings are ready for tender we will organise visits with local contractors at your convenience and issue them with what they need, ensuring they understand your project and requirements before they meet with you. We will then ensure your tenders are completed in a timely manner and review them to help you with your decision. We can support with the scheduling of works and the signing of contracts.
