THIS IS HOW WE WORK 

Project Stages

Your Ideas – (The Brief)

Design / Construction projects follow clearly defined paths and if these are adhered to, the project’s Cost, Time and Quality can be managed effectively. The client is encouraged to clearly describe their requirements, through a series of questions which allow them to think through both their functional and aesthetic requirements. This could be simple statements about the function of the new space (who would be using it, its proposed style, or the clients’ view on sustainable design). When this is completed the designer will be able to write the project Brief on the client’s behalf – after determining if the project is indeed feasible.

Our Input – (The Design)

The process of Design commences as soon as the Brief is agreed in writing, and takes into account Concept design, Design development and Technical design. Concept design uses the Brief to create a series of sketches to form an initial cost plan. Design development builds on this process to show the building’s structure along with clearly defined spaces. Technical design shows specific building element and components needed to construct the building, and this can be used to further grasp the building’s cost. These processes include the Planning and Building Control statutory approval stages which are necessary before construction can commence.

Input by Others – (Approvals)

At this stage, further technical drawing information is provided for both Contractor Tender pricing and to ensure that the Building Control officials are satisfied with the level of technical detail needed to construct to a high standard. The Tender process includes the invitation and selection of a suitable contractor, and this does not necessarily mean the cheapest price. After the contractor is selected final amendments to the drawings may occur before the construction documents are handed over to the contractor to begin work on site.

What is the cost? – (Invoicing)

Fees are agreed during the Briefing process and are based on a percentage of the total construction cost or a time charge per hour – but can be an agreed lump sum. The final figure is further adjusted if the designer is used from the start of the process to the end of construction. Quite often the designer supervises the construction process and monitors the work of the contractor on site, to ensure that a high standard is kept to the end. Fees are paid in installments example prior to each submission to the Statutory Authorities.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

See what our clients have  to say about our services

VIEW ALL OUR VIDEOS

Greenway Associates provided an exemplary service. Our project was based in the Caribbean which meant that we would be managing the build from overseas. Having unsatisfactorily used another firm to design our home, it was refreshing to be offered a relaxed, professional service, focussed on our needs. Wayne was able to take a project that we were previously dissatisfied with and turn it into one where we felt in control. Part of this was being able to see 3D visual representations of the building so that we can have a sense of the finished product, and then give our feedback for him to rework the drawings to our satisfaction. Wayne’s ability to both design and explain the design fully means that we now feel confident of the finished product and a lot more enabled to manage the build, having had a very clear vision of what the end product will be.

Greenway Associates provided design and advisory service for me on behalf of my client. This included liaising with other bodies such as Thames Water and Building Control. Wayne managed all correspondence with the statutory bodies, agreeing all details and fees, thus ensuring that all necessary agreements were finalised. That left me as the contractor free to concentrate on the build as outlined by the drawings illustrated by Greenway Associates.

Both the client and I were very pleased as the service provided was extremely efficient, and I wouldn’t hesitate to use or recommend Greenway Associates in the future.

A Kidd, Redhill, Surrey, Builder on Site

Greenway Associates communicated with us using terms that we found easy to understand, and guided us carefully through every aspect of the design and subsequent build. As part of his service Wayne contacted each supplier and builders merchant to determine the suitability of each relevant building material.

As a result we felt assured that the building would stand the test of time and hold its value on the open market. Preserving a high resale value is very important to us, and Greenway Associates has achieved this.

We appreciated the way Greenway Associates listened to the wish list for our property design and aimed to accommodate these as much as possible in the design. His knowledge of architectural design and planning regulations meant that he was also able to tactfully challenge some of our ideas and offer us options that would ensure that we had the best chance of achieving planning approvals, while still retaining our identity in the final product.

Alongside planning and design, Wayne also project managed our build, being a constant wealth of knowledge as we decided on contractors, suppliers etc., proactively anticipating challenges and working with the relevant stakeholders to manage these and come to a speedy resolution.

We would heartily recommend Greenway Associates to our friends and family or any of our colleagues wishing to have architectural design or project management services.

J Arkinstal, Redhill, Surrey, Refurbishment of Derelict dwelling

“During his employment with us, Wayne worked on several projects including the Horsham Baptist Church. This building was extremely complex. Wayne was very professional in his dealings with the client, consultants and the contractor. He is a good team player and real character in the office. Although Wayne is an Architectural Technician by profession he has performed the role as a project architect successfully and he has a good commercial mind”

Projects in this website were commissioned while at either Brodie Plant Goddard or at Scott Brownrigg.
