DMVF Architects carry out a wide range of domestic projects which range from re-vamps to complete refurbishment/extension to existing houses. We appreciate that not all clients know exactly what they want at the time of engaging an architect and are often put off by architect’s fees at the outset.
For this reason, we offer a fixed fee starter pack service (€850 + VAT)to help steer you and your family in the right direction. DMVF Architects will work with you to create a design that will make the best use of the space you live in. Sometimes very little actual construction work is required to achieve this successfully. Among other factors, we focus highly on optimising natural daylight in your home, energy saving concepts and creating a successful ‘flow’ throughout the spaces in your house.
How Does The House Extension Assessment Work?
For a fixed fee of €850 +VAT, we will meet with you in your home, and in conjunction with you and your family analyse your requirements and the potential locked within your home. This service includes DMVF Architects undertaking a limited measured survey.
What Do I Get in the House Extension Assessment?
We will then produce a design report which will include a number of sketch design proposals of various options customised for your own home and your individual needs. This report which will typically include:
- An agreed layout proposal
- Advice on planning permission
- Advice on building regulations
- Advice on construction methods
- Cost report
- Advice on energy saving options and
- Advice on grants available
The report will also include sketch layout drawings of the proposed works.
Should you require our services beyond this point, the initial fixed fee will be absorbed into our standard overall architect’s fee.
