Mint Architecture can carry out all RIBA Architectural Services from Conception to Completion.
At the initial on site consultation, we explore the brief, possible options and establish the likely scope of works required. Following this, Mint produces a detailed project proposal with all deliverables clearly itemised.
Mint would be very happy to meet you to discuss your plans. As this is an opportunity for you to understand what's possible and is a bespoke service, Mint Architecture charges £225 for initial consultations.
Please use the contact page to arrange a meeting.
Dreams brought to Life
Whether it's a few simple sketches or a detailed feasibility report, with an initial concept design study, Mint can really help to scope out the project and consider options.
She uses a number of tools to do this including: freehand sketches, shared mood boards, card models, and digital 3D models with walk through animations. Every project also has it's own private website so that all presentation material and documentation developed is easily accessible to the client.
The concept studies provide a range of ideas for us to discuss, develop and refine together.
Achieving planning consent can appear to be the biggest hurdle for a building project. The practice has a successful track record in obtaining planning, and is skilled in projects within Green Belt and Conservation Areas.
Mint recognises the need to thoroughly research the likely planning conditions, relevant site history and precedents and engage with the local planners effectively and timely.
With all this considered, using innovative and practical design, Mint aims to lift your project out of the ordinary and help you achieve your needs and vision.
Mint Architecture can cover everything for the Building Regulation approvals process, before your project can go ahead on site. The application to the local authority covers the functional requirements of buildings to safeguard the health and safety of the people using them, energy conservation and all access issues in accordance with relevant British Standards.
