What We Do

Our Service and Process

We guide our clients through each stage of the project. Creating and designing architecture is about responding creatively to opportunities presented to us by our clients. Our portfolio is growing and we actively seek challenging and ambitious projects. The design process is intrinsically client focussed and cyclic. A sequence of exploration, testing and presentation is how we provide value to our clients. We work three-dimensionally, enabling our clients to become immersed in the design process.

Service and Process

Site and Project Appraisal

We’ll come and talk to you about your project. Whether it is a home renovation or large commercial project; we’re always keen to engage clients on a face-to-face basis. It is important to develop the Project Brief from inception.

Concept Design & Planning

After our initial visit we will issue a fee proposal and appointment agreement. The first task is to complete a measured survey of the existing property/properties and site. We use this data to create the preliminary model and begin the concept design.

When you are happy with the design we will submit the plans for Planning Permission.

Technical Design & Building Regulations

When the design proposal receives planning permission, we will begin preparation of the technical proposals. We will submit a full plans application to the local building control department for Building Regulations approval. Only when full plans approval is received can construction begin.

Tender & Construction

Larger and more complex projects require tender information. The tender information is provided to building contractors in order for them to provide a construction cost. Our service fees are not included within the construction cost. On acceptance of the building contractor’s quotation, construction can commence. If required, Bloom will act as Contract Administrator during construction.

 

 

About our Services

The practice actively promotes sustainable materials throughout the design process combined with innovative energy generation technologies. Bloom seeks to reduce energy consumption by optimising the layout, form and built fabric of its projects. We achieve this by enhancing the specification of the design, beyond the requirements of the Building Regulations. The principle is sustainable long-term outcomes for clients and their assets. With a strong academic focus, Bloom Architects is committed to using the latest technologies throughout the process of design and construction.
