Carless & Adams have developed a reputation for providing a supportive, flexible and responsive service with a ‘can do’ approach. We pride ourselves on offering an outstanding personal service to operators, developers and clients whether their intention is a major development, a new build or an extension to an existing building.
Our Design Process
All of our clients benefit from our design process which aims to provide outstanding architectural services led by quality of design, best practice, contemporary thinking and quality management.
First Contact & Preparation of the Brief
Following an initial conversation we assist our clients in establishing a brief and analysing the site context. Once appointed, we develop the project objectives and aspirations, conducting a feasibility study to highlight the sites potential. When required we attend formal pre-application advice meetings with the local authority.
Once Development potential has been established, we then work with our clients to further refine the scheme. The chosen concept is developed and a full design package is submitted to the local planning authority. Acting as the agent, we liaise with the appointed planning officer to achieve the best possible outcome.
Technical Design & Construction
We act as the Architect and Lead Designer within the design team to produce a compliant, coordinated working drawing package, including specification, schedules and information. Fully involved in the construction phase, we attend site meetings, answer queries and advise on quality, finally providing information to update manuals.
