2018 was a fantastic year and already 2019 is off to a flying start. We were spoiled last year with an enormous range of exciting and rewarding projects to work on, from small rear extensions of 10m2 to new build properties of over 300m2.
This wide range of projects enabled us to use a variety of construction techniques, from traditional cavity wall constructions through to steel and timber frames. We always strive to provide our clients with a build that exceeds their expectations and using different construction techniques means we have the capability, ideas, insight and knowledge to deliver this.
All our clients either gained planning approval for their work or are in the process of gaining approval. Happy days! These approvals cover a multitude of designs: from rear extensions to double storey side extensions; lawful developments to new builds. Such a high success rate in the sometimes tricky arena of planning demonstrates the care and time we take during the design process to produce a build that both impresses our clients, yet overcomes the hurdles of planning.
We also successfully gained approval for every building control submission, both for our residential clients and our commercial clients. Our commercial projects included builds for warehouses and sports facilities throughout the country, from the north coast of Scotland down to Taunton in the south-west. Commercial projects such as these enable us to again clearly demonstrate that our in-house structural knowledge provides us with significant edge over traditional architects.
While the majority of our 2018 projects have already been constructed, some are still in motion, and others are now ready to start this year. Our expertise and excellent relations with constructors ensures we stay committed to each project until it is built. For us, a successful design is just the start of the journey; a fully constructed building is the end goal.
So thank you to all our clients for such a successful and enjoyable 2018. With 2019 already off to a great start we look forward to working with some of you again both this year and beyond.
