We’ve been delivering architectural services since 2005, specialising in residential extensions, loft conversions and home renovations between £100,000 and £1 million. During that time, we’ve learnt, what works and most importantly; what doesn’t work! Rest assured, you can be confident that the Seven Step Process will work for you. We’ll come to your home, listen to your concerns and what you want to achieve, then we’ll devise a bespoke plan just for you. And you’ll have the peace of mind knowing we’re in your corner every step of the way.
