I provide a full architectural service from inception to completion; working on New Build, Existing and Listed Buildings. The Plan of Work typically follows the RIBA work stages A-L:
Feasibility & Appraisal – Site Survey – Outline Proposals, Scheme Design (& Planning Applications) –
Final Proposals & Detailed Design – Construction Information & Tender Documentation – Tender Action –
Construction & Contract Administration – Completion & Final Account … or any part thereof.
My appointment is made before work starts on the project, and is either by letter with Terms and Conditions, or by way of an RIBA Standard Form of Appointment.
Party Wall surveying
Under a separate appointment I can act as a Party Wall Surveyor under the terms of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, in serving relevant notices and drawing up Party Wall Awards. A second surveyor is also usually appointed by the adjacent building owner. His fees are payable by the owner wishing to undertake building work.
I do not undertake engineering design but can organise a direct appointment between the client and an engineer. I work with a few practices whom I can recommend for appointment.
I work with reference to the former RIBA recommended fee scales, either on percentage or time charge. Fees are discussed and agreed at the outset of each project.
