FIRST THINGS FIRST,
READ OUR

REFURBISHMENT GUIDE

Why? To access the kind of insight reserved for our clients. Before we created this complimentary guide, clients came to us before they were ready to start. They had neither gathered their thoughts about their existing set up nor their future needs or carry out due diligence. As such the first time they ever consider those was at our initial call and this made them feel under pressure.

Working through our e-book you will gain an overview of the kind of things you are likely to encounter through the refurbishment process and this will give you the confidence you need as a client.

Atelier EURA understands the profound impact a thoughtfully designed home can have on your life. This is why we craft homes meticulously tailored to each client's vision. We maximise the inherent potential of their space, improve its functionality and aesthetic appeal and respecting its history and character.

 

Our expertise encompasses all stages of the architectural process, and the uncompromising nature of our experienced team will result on exceptional living spaces tailored to your vision and lifestyle, transforming your dream home into reality.

OUR PROCESS

If after reading our e-book, you are ready to move forward, do let us know and we will arrange a call aimed at understanding your needs and expectations,  Should you want to work with us, we will prepare a scope of works and a fee proposal to reflect our discussion and send it to you to review in your own time. After the scope is finalised and we are appointed, we will start working in your project. Typically, this is how, but remember your agreed scope may be different.

PROCES RESI

1
CLIENT BRIEF

The Client's Brief is a document that forms part of the Preliminary Design Analysis Stage (also known as Feasibility) and contains your vision, as  the client, explained in a clear manner for the design team to develop the design from.​

The feasibility stage is a very important part of the project where we can add a lot of value by undertaking an appraisal to assess strategic options and risks against the feasibility of your project. This exercise will enable you to decide on the best way forward.

What stage: Feasibility, RIBA Stages O and 1

Who will be involved? atelier EURA and  you our client

Planning: pre-application advice: 4/5 weeks (optional)

2
DESIGN

Using the information from the feasibility stage,  wet will prepare the Outline/Concept layout with you. Once signed off by you, we will brief other consultants such as structural engineer and incorporate their input into the general design strategy. In doing so, we will be formalising the basis for the detail design. It is the detailed design that we will use to apply for planning/listed building consent or to discuss with your freeholder's team, in the context of a License to Alter.

Whereas most other architects don't undertake interiors, Atelier EURA does. Kitchens, bathrooms and joinery are some of the elements we typically detail for our clients.

What stage: Design, RIBA Stages 2,3

Who will be involved: atelier EURA , the design team & our client. 

Planning: 8 to 12 weeks*

Freeholder: Typically, 8 weeks**

ILLUSTRATIONS

We are aware that not everyone is trained to understand two dimensional drawings and hence, as part of Atelier EURA's design process, we work on computer generated models rather than physical ones. 

 

Doing so enable us to discuss with our clients the decisions made throughout the design process overcoming  the communication challenges presented by two dimensional images.

The planning process varies depending on the project requirements and context. Furthermore, because the planning system is an evolving framework that aims at adapting to the ever changing needs of communities, it can be rather confusing. 

Our services include but are not limited to:

  • Pre application discussions

  • Applications for amalgamating or division of properties

  • Household and full planning applications

  • Advertisement applications

  • Listed Building Consents

  • Lawful Development Certificate applications

 

Typically, the project specific requirements will be highlighted at the feasibility stage.

What stage: Several stages

Who will be involved: atelier EURA, the design team. and our client

COMPLIANCE

With a detailed design signed off, we will lead the team to prepare the technical documents to be used in order to discharge Building Control/ Building Safety Regulator/ Freeholder licensing obligations as required. The documents will also serve to inform the tender process.

You will find that many architectural studios choose not to detail fixtures and finishes as part of the technical packages. We do, because we know from experience  that providing .limited information can lead to delays in the signing off process but also result in incomplete tender returns at the next stage.

What stage: Technical Drawings, RIBA Stage 4

Who will be involved: atelier EURA, the design team. and in LTAs also your lawyer.

Building control draft: 3 weeks

Building Safety Regulator Unknown (so far more than planning)

Planning conditions: technical responses 8 to 12 weeks

CONSTRUCTION

We (with the design team) will prepare the tender documentation on your behalf, for you to send to your contractor shortlist in order to get your prices and we will help you compare them in order for you to select which is the best option.

As we mentioned above, in order for you to be able to compare contractors fairly, it is important that the tender information is sufficiently detailed. Not only contractors will be able to cost it but will not need to add risks to their cost due to lack of clarity.

 

What stage: Tender, Contractor selection process

Who will be involved: our client, Atelier EURA, design team & contractors

Tender: Allow 4 weeks for pricing

During construction, the contractor builds and we oversee. We may also administer the contract while providing answers when unexpected issues emerge. {Specialist input from the design team might also be required.)

What stage: Construction, RIBA Stage 5

Who will be involved: our client, contractor & atelier EURA

Building control/ Safety Regulator runs inspections and checks works. Building control/ Safety Regulator sign-off on completion
