Commercial Architects London
Frequently Asked Questions
Every project that we undertake is unique, and we understand that this may be the first time that you may have thought you need to use a commercial architect; our FAQs are based on questions that we often get asked, if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
What type of commercial projects can you work on?
We have experience working on small scale developments up to fifty units, including conversions, large co-living HMO units and office and retail fit outs. If you have a project that you want to discuss please do not hesitate to get in touch.
We have a tight deadline - can you help?
Potentially yes, we’d like to understand a bit more and what it is you are looking to do and can then advise you as to a realistic timeframe to prepare proposals for you. We have historically undertaken a number of projects to tight swift deadlines and once your timeframes are known can work to do the same for you.
Can you help me write the brief for my project?
Do you offer project management as well as architectural services?
Can you help ensure my project is sustainable/energy efficient?
Am I required, by law, to use an architect for a commercial project?
Do you work with developers as well as landlords?
We have a tight budget for completing the project, can you help?
How many years experience does your team have?
Our existing architect is not delivering, can you take over?
We appreciate that this position can be frustrating and inevitably costs money – we have undertaken a number of project rescue projects to bring failing projects forward ultimately seeking to add value to your project; whether that be through swift turnarounds of design drawings or a review of a poorly designed scheme that does not maximise the space.
How do you structure your fees?
We work on a fixed fee structure for all projects; the fees are determined based on initial discussions and agreed scope; we understand that you need to budget for projects early and allow for this through our tailored flexible structure.
