The RIBA sets out the key stages of a construction project from conception to completion in its Plan of Work. This organises the process of managing, and designing building projects and administering building contracts into a number of key Work Stages.
The following outlines services we will provide during each Work Stage. We believe these services will allow us to produce a design which surpasses your expectations. However these can be tailored to your needs.
