How We Work

Design Outline

Work Stages 1-2

At Ptp we take on the role of design virtuoso; responding to the Client’s brief, site, and ambition to draw out the sui generis of the project.

We first begin with an initial meeting to explore, in detail, the scope of the project. Expect us to ask lots of questions about your requirements and aspirations for the project. This is then followed by the preparation of layout options and a meeting with you again to discuss how you wish to proceed.

our initial sketches will explore how various design solutions may answer the brief. we will discuss each aspect of the proposals in detail with you as the design develops. we will produce drawings, material samples, and 3D Visuals that illustrate the qualities of the proposed layouts and spaces.

Applications Consent

Work Stage 3

Statutory consents are the permissions you are required to obtain prior to undertaking changes at your property. We can assist you by submitting the relevant Documents for planning permission, building regulation, and permitted development consents for the proposed work, and liaising with the local authority throughout the process.

Tender Documents

Work Stage 4

We progress the design from planning drawing to a fully developed scheme, with detailed drawings and schedules describing the works. This will allow the contractors to provide comparable quotations. When the tenders are returned, we can assist by identifying suitable builders and assessing the prices returned.

Contract Administration

Work stage 5-6

We can act as the Contract Administrator between yourself and the chosen builder. Alternatively, we can be available to visit the building site and/or attend meetings to check on the progress of the works and/or provide an overview of the quality. Payment claims will be assessed against progress. Following completion we make final inspections and advise on any rectification works required.
