ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

Our in-house architectural designers can work with you to turn initial ideas into creative, workable, affordable plans, as a stand-alone service. As well as designing the layout and structural aspects of your project, we can advise on space- and cost-saving ideas; options for materials, finishes and suppliers; and bespoke joinery. Our fees are extremely competitive, as we don’t have the overheads of large architectural practices.

If you are starting the design process from scratch, we will arrange an initial briefing meeting at your property to discuss the project with you, then provide an itemised fees proposal for the different levels of design work we can provide (based on RIBA Stages).

If you already have basic plans/planning permission, we can develop a design package with everything a building contractor would need to quote for and build your project. If you would like Get Turner to cost your project, we can do so either as part of a competitive or negotiated tender process (see details in the Quoting section).

Our design service can include:

  • Architectural design – from concept to construction-ready drawings
  • Early cost calculations to match design to budget
  • Structural design
  • Planning permission applications
  • Party Wall Awards
  • Schedule of work
