SERVICES

FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION WITHIN A 20 MILE RADIUS OF BRISTOL, BATH & WELLS

A chance to meet at your home or site address to discuss your project and requirements.

For further afield projects and for clients who just wish to explore ideas but not proceed at this time a stand-alone design consultancy and site survey service can be commissioned. See details below.

STAND-ALONE DESIGN CONSULTATION & SITE SURVEY FEE-BASED ON HALF OR FULL DAY RATE + MILEAGE (AT AA STANDARD RATE OF £0.45 PER MILE).

We begin the design process by having an initial meeting with you at the project site.

The design consultation is very important to ensure there is complete understanding of your requirements and your lifestyle.

This is very much a collaborative process. We will spend several hours working with you on site, listening to your ideas and gaining a full understanding of your personal tastes; your likes and dislikes.

Through informal round-the-table discussions and live designing, we will establish a firm brief for the project and arrive at an appropriate proposal in outline form by the end of the session.

The consultation is there for you to be inspired, excited and energized so that you can move forward with confidence.

You’ll receive a follow up summary report after the visit to help you create a solid design direction that you can then implement within your own time frame.

BATHROOM DESIGN & FULL SPECIFICATION FEE PER SPACE – *DESIGN FEE REFUNDABLE AGAINST FULL ORDER OF PRODUCTS AND MATERIALS (Terms & conditions apply)

Following the initial consultation and upon commitment to the Design & Full Specification Service scaled drawings are made and a full recommended product specification and material list is put together in line with your budget.

We’ll arrange a time to run through the plans with you and discuss in depth the design and product choices, making any amendments or tweaks where necessary until we reach a final conclusion that you are completely happy with.

Upon approval of the design and product specification you’ll receive the following information:

  • Dimensional drawings and CAD visuals, including measured plan
