Project Description: Rear extension to ground floor flat forming a large Family Room and centralised courtyard.

Buchanan-Lacey Architects Role: Buchanan-Lacey Architects were employed to rework a design the client had previously commissioned. The works included giving personalised Architectural input. A planning application was submitted and subsequently approved. Post planning Buchanan-Lacey Architects have been used to discuss construction elements and contractor selection. A contractor is yet to be selected but it is expected that Buchanan-Lacey Architects will be retained as an adviser to the project for the clients peace of mind.

Clients Comments: We're still at the start of our building project (planning a side return extension) but so far Stephen has been very impressive with his knowledge and approach, taking the time to really understand what we are looking for, providing guidance and drawing up detailed plans. We are looking forward to working with him as our project takes shape.

Project Description: This is Phase 1 of the works which include some interesting proposals for this lower ground floor flat that benefits from garden access. Phase 1 includes internal alterations to make the existing floor plan more coherent by relocating the kitchen to the rear of the property and forming a Family Room with garden access. It also includes forming steps from the existing lightwell from the Master Bedroom to the garden.

Buchanan-Lacey Architects Role: The client has employed Buchanan-Lacey Architects to advise on the best way to coordinate the planning to give the master plan the best chance of gaining approval. Following this we have then submitted the planning and fully coordinated the process. During this time we have also managed the structural engineering and party wall works on the project.
