We arrange a visit
After your initial enquiry, we typically arrange a site visit. This is an important step for both parties as it allows for:
- The architect to get a better idea of the project, its constraints and other opportunities.
- You to get a better idea of us and decide if you would like to work with us.
- Following a site visit, we are able to build a detailed brief before quoting.
If you own the property or land this initial site visit is free of charge.
