Feasibility and Concept Design
Whether we’re working with you to develop your ideas or taking your designs and growing them with 3D visual design software, at Märraum we can help you experience your space before it’s even built. It also helps us brush up on the finer details of your build, so we know exactly what to expect as the build comes to life.
And Planning Applications
Our team is well-versed in leading you through the planning process, and because we’re accredited agents, it’ll be a smoother time too. We work closely with the local authorities like Cornwall Council, providing information and drawings in a specific style and format that helps reduce their decision time by up to half – helping you breathe easy. What’s more, as a RIBA accredited studio, we have direct access to an even bigger pool of professional expertise to draw from too. All the better for getting your project off the paper.
Construction and Tender
Once building regulations are approved, we can take away the hassle of organising your build by liaising with contractors and builders, getting quotes and working up the build schedule. This gives you the control to say what you want, and how much you want to pay. To make sure your build is as easy as possible, we’re also happy to come on site regularly to check everything is coming along smoothly.
