Below is a summary of our typical design and build process:
First, we’ll have a chat about your requirements.
In today’s technological age, we tend to get many emails asking for more information about our builds, the process, costs and/or specific elements such as planning (this is a very common question). We are more than happy to respond to them – in fact, we pride ourselves in responding to all email queries on the same day we receive them. Responding immediately saves us all time and usually means we can quickly answer your queries and concerns and put to bed any issues so that you can happily move forward to the next stage.
However, we will always call you - we’re traditional that way – we want to talk it through with you and start to build that all important relationship.
If we are both in agreement, we will follow up our discussion with a draft quotation. If, after this stage (and, usually, this entails further conversations) you’d like to progress further, we can arrange a free visit and site survey.
The Visit and Site Survey!
This visit will enable both parties to better understand the requirements; view the terrain and site and discuss any potential design opportunities and considerations before any further decisions or design work is undertaken and a final quotation produced.
We’ll then produce a draft design board and updated quotation.
Once you’re happy with the design board and quotation, which may also incorporate making a planning application on your behalf, we can make a start on the production and manufacture of your build. If planning permission is required, the production and manufacture of the build will start once planning permission is obtained and the first instalment - the deposit - is paid.
The first instalment, or deposit, is 50% of the total cost as set out in the agreed and final quotation; our standard pricing schedule can be found on the Pricing page.
Next, we deliver your building, in sections, for our qualified and skilled craftsmen to erect on-site, in as little as 5 days (on average, although this will be dependent on the site, size and specification of the building).
Any additional ‘finishing touches’ or extra options you have requested will usually be completed during this stage.
We’ll also get in touch, post-build; to ensure you’re happy and to be on hand in the unlikely event we should need to address any minor snags or issues.
Where do we start in thanking you for the most amazing garden room we have ever seen? Thanks to you Quentin for making this happen and being so professional, ultra organised and very patient in all the planning. - Anna, from Buckinghamshire
We met with Quentin to discuss building a home office in our garden. His knowledge, likeability and professionalism shone through and made him stand out. Quentin was absolutely brilliant in managing the whole process for us from start to finish. We maintain a good relationship now and I am happy to provide a testimonial. We had a very specific design in mind for our garden room yet it was easy to work through with Quentin. The whole process was expertly handled and Quentin offered a brilliant solution and was professional in every respect. - Gary, from Brentford
Thanks to you all for working in terrible conditions in minus temperatures..From the the very first enquiry the service we received was top notch; very professional and prompt.Your team has provided an excellent product and we are able to enjoy our Garden Room far sooner than we had expected! - Steve, from Southampton
