ARB Certified Architects & Architectural Designers in Chelsea SW1

APT Renovation focus on providing clients architectural designs & planning drawing in West / South West London. Alongside that, we offer planning advice to improve project progress and expenditure in all kinds of residential builds. We offer architectural services in Chelsea and further afield beyond the suburbs of Greater West London.
We know that many clients do not understand the particulars of what an architect actually does or whether they even need drawing of an architect before the building project. This is why APT are always keen to follow each and every enquiry with a free site visit & consultation, on a no commitment basis. This ensures that we can meet a potential client to discuss their particular needs and to give initial advice about the feasibility about what they are planning.
Our project feasibility assesment will focus upon matters such as whether or not planning permission be required, budget costings, and about what type of design solution would be most suitable. APT's consultations usually last about an hour. Call us today on 0207 223 6417 Following the initial free consultation and residential visit, we will then confirm and advise you about the feasibility & provide you quotation. We would aim to make the most of the space within your property whilst increasing the monietary gain for client if a future house sell was on the cards.
Daily, APT have customers contacting us who require our services to assist them in realising their plans for an extension to a family home or a flat, our quotes will submitted at a fixed fee, not a percentage of the cost of the building work. We prefer to quote a fixed fee because we know from experience that it gives you the certainty from the planning and drawings of how much the build will cost in total. For commercial projects and large scale residential work we would normally expect to provide fee quotations on the basis of a percentage of the final construction cost..

Architectural Service – Process

Before undergoing any work, we carry out a property site assessment to find out the history and context of your building, in order for us to comply with your local authority. We always take into consideration the surrounding areas of your property, particularly if there are any heritage sites or conservation areas nearby. Respecting the nature and heritage of an area is a massive part of what we do, and our architectural designers always take these factors into account when designing your home.

As the rules and regulations for planning permission and building regulation vary in each council, we ensure that we are up to date with each one, and are always updated when there are new rules introduced. We also take the time to analyse the reasons why properties get approved and denied in the area, as this allows us to maintain our excellent approval rate.
