What We Do
LARK Architects offer a FREE consultation to all prospective clients to discuss your ideas for developing your project and will provide you with some initial fee and project advice.
At the initial consultation, we will assess your requirements and provide you with our impartial professional opinion of your project and advise you on the best way to proceed. We can also offer you a no obligation fee proposal for carrying out the services required.
In the early stages of any development project, a feasibility study is essential. This analysis explores the financial, practical and planning viability of the project. We are often asked to look at buildings and sites by prospective purchasers and developers to assist them with examining the full potential of a particular development opportunity.
Following feasibility studies, the next step is to produce a concept design. This design stage gives an initial idea of what can be achieved with a property or site whether it is the optimisation of internal space, looking at the most effective use of site area or examining alternative architectural compositions that may influence the ‘style’ or ‘look’ of a building..
We can provide Outline or Full Planning Applications which we have vast experience of completing with a high success rate. The planning process is often challenging and is becoming increasingly more complex, therefore if the programme allows, we always recommend Pre-Application negotiations take place to lower the risk of refusal.
We can arrange full structural and civil engineering design services for your project with the process managed by us, ensuring a fully integrated design. We work with highly skilled structural engineers who are fully qualified and experienced in every aspect of construction.
These regulations are in place to ensure accepted levels in health and safety, energy conservation and access. At LARK we pride ourselves on having an eye for the fine detail of buildings and produce high quality drawings that can be submitted to the local authority for approval.
We can provide a variety of survey information ranging from a basic boundary & level survey to give the “lay-of-the-land” to fully detailed topographical surveys which includes all significant visible above ground features. We can also provide Measured building surveys.
