Pre-Design Report

At Hindley & Co, we strongly recommend that the right preparatory work is completed before design commences. We want to understand your brief, your budget and your site's possibilities, limitations, and restrictions first, so you don't waste time, money, or energy exploring a design that will ultimately not be feasible.

This work is included in our Concept Design Stage, but sometimes it is useful to engage an Architect to do this work first,  as it will give you a much more realistic idea of what is possible before you commit to more services.  The knowledge gained will also enable us to tailor our overall fees to your unique needs, so you won't end up paying for services that are not necessary.

A Pre-Design Report typically includes:

  • Return brief

  • Area schedule

  • Preliminary PROCALC opinion of the probable cost range

  • Title restrictions

  • Authorities restrictions

  • Advice on information the client needs to obtain or provide

  • List of consultants likely to be required

  • List of permits likely to be required

  • Client-architect meeting schedule

  • Fee proposal from land surveyor

  • Advice on timing, process, and programme

  • Advice on next steps.
