architectural services

Russell Parkhill Architects Limited provide all the services expected of a chartered architect. The Royal Institute of British Architects publish comprehensive lists of the dozens of services available, however most clients employ architects to:

  • advise on the feasibility of their scheme and provide competent design advice 
  • survey an existing structure 
  • prepare sketch designs and/or three dimensional models for discussion 
  • liaise with the planning department and prepare applications for planning consent (and listed building or conservation area consent if required) 
  • obtain consent under the current building regulations (essential before the works can commence on site) 
  • produce all the drawings, specifications and schedules of work necessary for a builder to construct the project 
  • assist the client with analysing the results of the tender period (comparing prices from builders to undertake the build) 
  • set in place a suitable contract with the chosen builder 
  • administer that contract by regularly visiting the site to inspect the progress and quality of the work 
  • oversee the handing over of the building to the client

 Not all clients need, or want the full architectural service available. So whether you are exploring ideas, whether you are ready to proceed with a planning application or indeed, whether you are ready to build, we have an architectural service pack designed to suit your requirements.
