THE PROCESS

AT LONDON HOUSE WE DO NOT BELIEVE IN ONE SIZE FITS ALL, EACH CLIENT IS UNIQUE, AND OUR AIM IS TO CREATE YOUR OPTIMUM BESPOKE PROJECT FROM  CONCEPT THROUGH TO COMPLETION

1.  FEASABILITY

2.  CONCEPT

3.  DEVELOPMENT

The initial phase of the project includes preliminary studies of the property or site. We will discuss with you what you are hoping to achieve from the design and your ambitions for the project along with timescale and budgets. We work with you to build a detailed brief and understand your design preferences.

This is the beginning of the creative process. At this point we compile early costings based on our initial discussions and if required introduce an architect to produce layouts for the design of your property as we begin to refine the project into a final proposal.

Once the project outline and preliminary costs have been agreed we then get into the detail. Architects will produce working drawings and high quality visuals will be produced as required. We will refine the internal layouts, specify key finishes and itemise materials required for final agreement.

4.  TECHNICAL

With the project design signed off, we will move on to creating a detailed technical construction programme for the project. We will appoint professional specialists such as structural engineers and where required obtain planning permission.

5.  PRODUCTION

A full project and decision timeline will be drawn up to ensure all parties have a clear understanding of the decision making process and the build schedule. A definitive specification of works is produced, and final budget advised.

6.  MOBILISATION

7.  CONSTRUCTION

Our team will be assembled to commence works on the project. Your site manager will be introduced, and site meetings scheduled. In addition, fortnightly project reviews will ensure that the project is on time and to budget.

On site we work hard to maintain a clean, tidy and safe environment. We work with the architect, contractors and other members of the supply chain to achieve the successful implementation of the build along with the installation and commissioning of all associated trades.

8.  PROJECT CONCLUSION

As the build concludes, we can produce a comprehensive manual covering all aspects of the operations and maintenance of the project we have completed. This ensures any future maintenance is able to be performed quickly and efficiently with the minimum of disruption.
