Colin Smith + Judith Wilson Architects

Approaching us

New clients will normally contact us by telephone or email and our first discussion will establish how we can help them. We then make an initial site visit for us to familiarise ourselves with the potential project and often start the process with a sketch scheme at a fixed fee, which allows our client to quickly get a feel for our approach before progressing.

Working with us

Our relationship with our clients is fundamental to a successful project. It is important to us that we work well together and good communication is essential throughout your project from the development and choice of the design solution, specifications and keeping you informed during the building contract. 

Who we work with

The Architect will normally lead the design team, depending on the complexity of the project, we work regularly with a number of structural engineers, mechanical and electrical engineers and fire safety consultants and will advise you on their appointment.

For most projects we will advise the appointment of a quantity surveyor. For smaller projects their service will be limited to an initial probable cost and a simple pricing document but we believe that this will save you money in the long run. On larger projects they will report on costs at important design stages, prepare a Bill of Quantities for tender and value the works during the building contract.
