When embarking on any building project, it is important to speak to a professional architect – especially if this is your first time! An architect will be able to offer insight, advice and guidance in regards to all aspects of your project, including whether you’ll need planning permission. This information may be invaluable down the line, saving you both time and money on your project.

At Whitworth, we want our clients to feel informed, listened to, and confident when making decisions on their project going forward. This is important to us at every step of our partnership, but especially during the initial consultation.

We will visit you at your site, not only to get a better comprehension of the context, but also to ensure that we can understand and visualise your project goals. It always helps to put a face to a name, too!

Why might you need an initial consultation?

Whether you are converting a barn, extending your home or building a dwelling from scratch, a consultation with one of our architects can help you decide how best to move forward with your project.

A consultation will be useful to you if you:

  • Have a project in your sights, but are not yet ready to begin work on it
  • Want to know more about our architects, portfolio and services
  • Are comparing two or more architects
  • Are in need of specialist advice and insight before beginning your project

Our friendly and experienced design team members are happy to help you take your first step with confidence. Best of all, our first consultation is free. Contact us today to get started.
