THE PROCESS

Vint & Smith have a clear framework to guide you through the process of achieving your project.  We understand that each project varies and some clients may only wish to engage us for part of the process.  Please contact us to discuss your project further and arrange a free site consultation.  Following this meeting we will provide you with a tailored fee proposal that will outline the specific services that you will require.  

 

Our architectural and interior design studio offers a full range of services, including;

Site Study & Brief

At the beginning of your project we shall meet with you to discuss your lifestyle, design aspirations and budget in order to develop a project brief.  We shall also assess the site opportunities and constraints.  If required a chartered surveyor will undertake a detailed measured survey of the site/building.

Concept Design

Based upon your brief, we will explore different sketch designs from which we will present you with the best options.  We often provide 3D visualisation models to support the CAD drawings.

Design Development & Planning Application

During this stage we refine the design for your approval.  If planning permission is required we will produce a package to submit on your behalf.  We will advise if your planning application requires additional information from specialist consultants.

Detailed Design

We will work with your appointed structural engineer and any other necessary consultants to produce a set of detailed drawings and a specification to submit to building control on your behalf.  Dependant on our appointment we can go into a greater depth of architectural detail and interior design – specifying finishes, fittings and fixtures that enables the project to be tendered more accurately and built to your exacting requirements.

The Build

Throughout the construction of your project we can continue to liaise with your builder to ensure the build runs as smoothly as possible.
