Concept & Feasibilty Study

A Concept and Feasibility study forms a robust starting point for any project. This stage gives recommendations for the delivery of the project and produces an initial design based on your brief, budget, the site and the planning context. The study includes:


  • Site Survey: A site-visit to undertake a measured survey of the house and grounds. This survey will be to a sufficient level of detail and accuracy to undertake a concept design, but further detail may be required for later planning or technical work.

  • Site Appraisal: Assessing available information to determine any other constraints that may affect the design. This may include sewage pipes, radon zones, coal mining risks, flood zones and any other planning designations. Researching local and national policies that have influence over development in the area to establish the constraints and planning strategy. An example Site Appraisal can be found here.

  • Brief: Taking your brief and evaluating your aspirations. The brief will be written and confirmed by you at the start before any design work commences.

  • Design: A concept design based on your brief. This will be presented in the form of a 3D model to help you get a feel for the spaces and aesthetic. Sketch plans will also be provided to aid with the initial input of other third parties such as structural engineers and contractors. No subsequent iterations of the design are included with the fee. Any further design development is carried out in the next stage of work heading towards a planning application (RIBA stage 3). I hope you find this video useful in explaining the level of detail a 3D model would give in this piece of work.

  • Presentation: A 2-hour presentation via video call
