Architectural Design

Our award winning, professional team have experience working on a cross-sector spectrum of schemes, from small bespoke developments, through contemporary remodelling of existing buildings, enhancements to public sector schemes, to full new build designs. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide clients with a design to both satisfy their practical spatial requirements whilst adding real value to their asset.

The EKV ethos is to provide a full architectural service which is based on quality, professional level of service and care to our clients regardless of the size of project. We aim to provide careful, considered advice at every stage of the procurement process from an initial feasibility consultation to on-site completion. We understand that each of our clients and their projects are unique and we therefore prepare a no obligation, tailored fee quote to provide a part or full service, as required, ranging from:

  • Initial feasibility consultation
  • Design & concept analysis
  • Provision of scaled drawings as existing
  • Sketch scheme proposals
  • Preparation and submission of planning application
  • 3-D modelling & photo-realistic rendering
  • Detailed drawings to Building Regulation standards
  • Full construction drawings & specification for tender
  • On-site inspection & contract administration

We have experience working on listed properties and those within Conservation Areas, where our ability to design and respond sensitively to historic settings has enabled us to achieve successful planning approvals for clients. Our desire to produce comprehensively detailed drawings and specification documents as part of our tender packs, has given clients a full understanding of their vision prior to construction and also allowed an unrivalled cost analysis programme. This latter service has been found to be invaluable to clients involved in educational redevelopment and enhancements, where cost control is fundamental to almost all of the projects.

The EKV team also have an extensive range of experience in Interior Design, fit-out and contemporary installations across sectors including leisure, hotels, restaurants, exhibitions and retail. These skills compliment the architectural services we provide, and often add a valuable additional dimension to schemes requiring an interior or more detailed focus.
