Ashleigh Clarke Architects

Our Process

Before a single brick is laid, the true foundations are made. It’s all in the process.

There’s no standard response to an architectural project, so each design must be tailored to your brief. However, all RIBA architects must follow a clearly defined process.

It can look daunting, but we are very experienced and work closely with you to guide you through.

RIBA Stage 0 - 2

STAGE 0 - 2

Client Brief to Concept

This is the briefing stage from which we create the overall concept designs. First is the discovery call with you to confirm the details; location, scope of the project, any considerations such as Listed Building status or AONB. Ashleigh Clarke will then make a site visit to meet you and view the property or proposed site. As part of our process, we carry out a feasibility study, which confirms whether the project is possible from a structural or environmental point of view. We present our preliminary costing with our fee proposal for you to review and then upon advice to proceed we arrange the building survey. We present our concept design.
