Professional, creative, approachable, and responsive.
We are endlessly passionate about what we do.
BROCK CHARLES Domestic provides architectural services to provide either new build or replacement dwellings, extensions and refurbishment to homes of all sizes and value, we oversee the whole process from inception to completion or any part thereof should you not require the full service from an Architect. We offer a FREE CONSULTATION, so we will come to your home and discuss your requirements, advising on whether the proposals will require a Planning Application or not and advise you of what Planning Constraints may influence the proposal, like if it is within Green Belt, a Conservation Area or similar and the implications if a Listed dwelling.
We do not work using percentage fees but we will always define the scope of work where we can and provide a fixed price for each stage of the works from the measured survey to the proposals and on through to the completion. As a separate service, we can provide three-dimensional computer modelling of a scheme, often invaluable to explain the proposals to the Planning Authority or to alleviate any worry about shadow casting on a neighbour’s home. We can also provide detailed budget costing of the proposal prior to a Planning submission or preparation of the working drawings for a Building Control submission, so you know in advance of the anticipated cost before the builders price the tender package.
We provide all the detailed working drawings for both the Building Control submission stage if required, but also for the builder to not only accurately price the works during the tender stage, which we can manage for you, but through to overseeing the builders work during the construction and through to completion. We have our own approved set of builders, though we can work with your own builders and administer the tender stage to ensure you are getting best value for money.
We can act as Contract Administrator to deal with the payments made to the builder during the works, issuing an Architects Certificate when we are satisfied on the progress and the value of work that is being claimed for that interim.
We want you to be completely satisfied with the journey from conception through to handing over the keys at the end of the project and will assist you along the way in whatever level of service you require.
