Our Services:

1. Disclaimers affecting our services to you and any contract with you

Whilst we exercise reasonable skill and care in the provision of our services, including the provision of any quotations, and the delivery of our architectural design packages, you should be aware of the following:

  • we can never guarantee that a local planning authority will grant planning permission or do so without imposing conditions that you might find onerous, or which might be too expensive for your budget;

  • our quotations assume that your development is not unusual in terms of scope, size or location. If you think your development may fall into any of those categories please contact us at once via our “Contact Us” page

  • we strongly recommend that you seek Full Plans approval when applying for Building Regulations, even if the alternative Building Notice application appears more suitable. There is usually no difference in cost between the two, but a Full Plans application is vetted before developments begin, giving us the opportunity to amend any drawings if necessary. If you decide not to seek Full Plans approval we shall not be liable for any additional costs or losses you suffer

  • we can never guarantee that your proposed development, building, scheme, extension or the like will not infringe the rights of a third party, such as a neighbour. You may not therefore rely on any opinion we express as to such matters but should instead take advice from a suitable qualified professional, such as a solicitor or rights of light solicitor

  • for larger developments we recommend that you should budget for soil samples, a water asset plan, a CCTV drainage survey, and specialist legal advice ( e.g., as to bespoke insurance policies, restrictive covenants, tree preservation orders,  and so on),

  • you should always check to see whether your proposed development, building, scheme, extension or the like will fall within the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 or any statutory successor thereto
    we can never guarantee that you will be required under the building regulations to carry out work above and beyond which we have designed, such as deeper foundations

  • we can never guarantee that specialist contractors or sub-contractors will not require you to pay for extra works or services not shown in our architectural design packages

  • you should always seek legal advice from a solicitor; we are not liable for any legal advice we provide

  • we are not responsible for any event beyond our control, such as a pandemic, industrial action, riot, civil commotion, failure of communications systems and so on

  • We are not responsible for the detailed design requirements of MEP installations, such as refrigerators and plumbing systems. It is the client’s responsibility to have the detailed MEP design checked by an Electrician and/or Gas Safe Engineer or MEP Professional following client specifications being provided and prior to commencement of construction works.

2. Payment
  • A one-off deposit of £149 is required to secure a measured survey of your property

  • Once your deposit is received, we’ll undertake ‘Initial Checks’ on your property to identify any potential planning issues which might affect the project such as ‘Article 4 Restrictions’, ‘Tree Preservation Orders’, site restrictions and many others. If we find something, we’ll bring it to your attention before your scheduled measured survey. However you are advised to check with your lawyer whether there are any restrictive covenants affecting your property which might affect any development, and whether you need your mortgage company’s permission

  • If you no longer want to continue after your ‘Initial Checks’ findings, you will not be required to make any further payments

  • You will not be required to pay the balance of the fees for your Planning Drawings until you are satisfied with them.

  • We carry our up to three sets of revisions entirely free of charge. Thereafter, each set of revisions will be charged at £150, payable in advance

  • Once you’re ready to proceed to the ‘Preparing to Build’ phase of design, we’ll require the balance of the fees for your chosen Design Package paid in advance.

  • Once you’re ready to proceed to the ‘Preparing to Build’ phase of design, we’ll require the balance of the fees for your chosen Design Package paid in advance

  • If you attempt during the Design and Planning Stage in any way to misuse our services by using drawings created by us without our express consent, the entire balance of our fees for the Design and Planning Stage will immediately become due and payable. In addition, we may demand payment of any abortive management time we incur.

3. Maximum Liability
  • Our maximum liability to our clients, whether in contract or in tort or for breach of statutory duty, will not exceed the price paid by them to us

  • We are not liable for any claims which are made more than 6 months after the last date upon which we provided services for you

4. Governing law, dispute resolution

These Terms, and any dispute between you and us regarding these Terms or the Site, shall be governed and dealt with by English law.

You agreement with us to provide a design package is not a contract within the meaning of the Housing Grants Construction & Regeneration Act 1996 or any statutory modification thereof

Nothing in these terms confers any right to enforce them on any person to whom we have not provided services
