Base 1 Services

As a Chartered Architectural Practice we can provide all the services you would expect of an Architect from feasibility studies through to the delivery of completed buildings. Our Project values can range from £10k for small retail soft-strip to £7ml for more complex schemes. Most of our Client’s projects are procured Traditionally where existing buildings feature. Design & Build procurement is often applied to new build. Our Contract Administration expertise bridges both forms.

  • Architectural Design.
  • Building Conservation & Design in a Conservation Context.
  • Client Representation.
  • Contract Administration.

The Royal Institute of British Architects website provides a great source of information on how you can use an Architect and how we can add value to your project. You can find that and many more topics at:

Architectural Design & Applications for Planning Consent.

The conversion of the Tower at Crystal House in Preston into 48 apartments is a good example of the architectural design expertise we can provide. The site is located within the City Centre Conservation Area and is surrounded by Grade I and Grade II Listed Buildings.

The architecture and materials for the façade remodelling respond sympathetically to the conservation context and were both supported by the LPA Planning and Conservation Departments. The density of the development and economic return were balanced well with the architectural solution.

The successful planning application was supported robustly by in-house prepared Statements to address: Planning Policy, Heritage and Design & Access. Computer-Generated Images (CGI) and movies communicated the proposed design fully to the Local Authority Planning Committee.
