Architectural Design & Planning

A professional architectural and planning service to suit your project, marking the beginning of your journey with us.

Architecture is at the heart of what we do and is the first step in the process to bring your ideas to reality. As a client, you want a clear and concise method of working, which involves minimum fuss with maximum gains.

In days gone by, this would be a difficult task to undertake. A client would be expected to liaise between both architect and contractor in order to get the project moving. There was no clear line of communication and no point of contact, meaning projects could suffer delays and inevitably, costs would exceed the budget.

This method is still used today, but at Erimus Architectural, Build and Design, we take an entirely different approach to the issue, which makes it easier for you to get your project off the ground.

Our team us Architectural Build and Design, we pride ourselves on following the RIBA guidelines, guaranteeing your build is to the highest standards and quality.


    What are the RIBA Stages of architectural planning?


    To ensure your project is planned efficiently and effectively, Erimus Architectural Design and Build rigorously follow the eight RIBA stages of architectural planning. We have detailed the stages in the traditional method, so you know exactly what to expect from us when planning and designing your project.



    Step 0 - Strategy

    The first step of our journey is to understand your project, objectives and requirements before any drawings are made and designs created. We will prepare a business case, consider your budget and the associated risks, and outlines your feasible options.

    Step 1 - Brief

    Once your requirements have been determined, we prepare a project brief, undertake feasibility studies and agree a budget for the project. Site information is sourced, and we prepare a project programme and also source pre-application planning advice, ensuring we are ready when it come to the actual application.

    Step 2 - Concept

    At this stage, we prepare the architectural concept, and work with you and stakeholders to undertake design reviews and prepare a stage design programme. In addition, we obtain pre-application planning advice and agree with you the route to building planning regulations.

    Stage 3 - Spatial Coordination

    Your project is now starting to take shape. With the concepts agreed, our planners prepare and submit the planning application(s) to the relevant authorities and monitor throughout the process. We also review the design against building regulations and submit the planning application.

    Step 4 - Technical Design

    Here, we develop the architectural and engineering technical design, and obtain all the required design information that enables us to manufacture and construct the project. Development of a Construction Phase Plan is carried out and, if applicable, we submit an F10 form to the Health and Safety Executive and submit the building regulations application.

    Step 5 - Manufacturing and Construction

    Now you see your project coming to life as we carry out the Construction Phase plan. After finalising the site logistics, we implement the construction of the project, monitor the progress against Construction Programme and inspect construction quality once complete, all the while, complying with planning conditions Any site queries you may have are resolved prior to stage 6.

    Step 6 - Handover

    Once any queries and snagging issues are resolved, we hand over the building and complete any aftercare tasks that may be required.

    Step 7 - Usage

    After usage of the build has commenced, we implement Facilities Management and Asset Management. Evaluation of the building performance while in use, takes place as part of the Post Occupancy Evaluation stage.
