Advice hub

From full planning and design, to standalone appraisals including an initial clarification of ideas, testing an idea with the local authority, and advice on the energy efficiency of your property - we are here to help.


The world of construction can be a minefield - you only have to watch an episode of Grand Designs to see how much can go awry on a job! If you're not sure where to start, or indeed whether what you want to do is even feasible, we can make things a bit clearer and give you peace of mind. 

Our team has a breadth of experience across a number of areas including planning, heritage, sustainability, interior design, on site construction, project management and contract administration so we can offer guidance in many areas.

We offer bolt-on services to support you through your build, and consultancy options even if you come to us further down the line in your project. We have taken on a number of schemes at various stages including post-planning decision and even mobilising projects onto site and seeing them built out.

Scroll down to see some of the services we offer - if you can't see what you need, please do get in touch and we'll do our best to help!

Meet the specialists

David Parry

Planning guru

David has been involved in planning for over 30 years, so much so he's forgotten more than most of us will ever know! If you're after advice on planning feasibility, policy or strategy look no further! 

He's also come up with a few off the wall design ideas at times so if you're looking for guidance for that wow factor in your building, he'll happily put forward some suggestions.

Heather MccNeill

Sustainability pundit

Heather has had an interest in all things sustainable building since her undergraduate days. A Certified Passivhaus Designer, AECB Carbonlite Graduate and owner of a barn currently undergoing and EnerPHit Plus conversion, she is well placed to offer advice across a broad range of topics. 

Her forte is assessing sites and buildings to come up with strategies that make the most of the environment to maximise natural light, solar gains and frame views.

Emma Warren

Eye for design

Emma has extensive experience in high end residential developments and as such has a keen eye for all things design from composition architectural visualisations to putting together mood boards, material/texture palettes and furniture options for interior design.

She offers insightful views into the opportunities provided by even the smallest of interventions on what appear to be rather nondescript spaces to transform how occupying them feels.

Alison Ross

All things building

Alison prides herself in announcing that she is not an architect thanks to her background on building sites since her teenage years. She is the first port of call for all things health and safety, project management, site issues and contracts. 

Alison has a background in quantity surveying so is great to have in your corner when preparing tenders and negotiating prices and also works for a plumbing company so knows a thing or two about pipes and plant!
