The practice offers a range of service types, from informal design advice, design and technical drawing services, through to full project management, each tailored to suit your needs and budget.

Fees, whilst significant, represent a small proportion of overall project costs,. The practice strives to ensure that when viewed against the benefits of a considered design, and professional cost/project management, fees charged are a very cost effective use of project funds available.
