June 29, 2016 11:55 am

If you have obtained planning approval and require assistance in getting your project out the ground, brp architects are in the business of helping you do this. We have a proven track record of assisting clients realise the potential of their projects and we can help you do the same.

In this recent conservation project brp architects were appointed, after Planning & Listed Building Consents, to develop the technical design, and to obtain Building Regulations approval on behalf of the client.

Prior to the construction process, we approached several contractors and obtained prices from them to ensure the right quality of build could be carried out within the budgeted cost. Brp architects oversaw the construction stage to keep the build on target in terms of cost, quality and program.

Working closely with the client to develop the project specification, which included the desire for a bespoke staircase design, brp architects worked hard to co-ordinate all aspects of the proposal for the re-building of the Coach House. This included the appointment of a Structural Engineer and obtaining the input of specialist staircase fabricator DeMax. The project was tendered to a number of Local Building Contractors through a traditional tender process and the contract was awarded to local building contractor Brammond & Co, who executed the project to an excellent standard..

The construction process took approximately 12 months and included a courtyard garden that has been lovingly created by the client to compliment the Coach House, which, together with the overall quality of the main construction works, ensured the replacement compliments the listed Rectory to which it is connected. The traditional materials and attention to detail are a notable throughout, whilst the modern staircase and interior add further quality to the build.
