Exceptional or Innovative New Buildings
When considering New Buildings; whether you are looking for tradition or innovation, boldness or understatement, DD Architects can lift your project out of the ordinary. Anyone can alter a building. It takes an expert to do it with flair, imagination and style. Where a new building is required either next to a heritage building or in a conservation area historic or you simply require an exceptional, innovative and energy efficient design, special expertise is required to ensure that the work benefits its character, fabric and value; whilst also reducing energy costs.
There is a misplaced fear that architects will impose their own tastes on new buildings at the expense of yours. Nothing could be further from the truth. Step by step, by consultation and agreement, DD architects will interpret your ideas and requirements and lead you through the process to the finished building.
New buildings that reflect their context
Only after you have seen and approved initial sketches will the ideas for the new buildings be translated into detailed designs. At an early stage DD Architects can help you define a range of costs or options for your project.
DD Architects consider that a vital part of the service is to advise on statutory controls and procedures which might apply to your project. As a client or building owner, you are obliged to comply with legislation concerning town and country planning, Building Regulations, health and safety in design and construction and, where relevant, party walls. These are all matters that we can help and advise. DD Architects will also deal with the various authorities on your behalf, which can often be time- consuming and stressful.
Our success is built on sensitivity, on quality of execution and by avoiding long, costly, uncertain confrontation. We deal directly with planning authorities from strength and knowledge, extensive experience of their policies and a vast understanding how particular policies impact on the project. DD Architects does not have a ‘default style.’ We seek harmony with an area’s special character, whether adapting a design to suit the local vernacular or innovative solutions that require the modern form.
