We offer initial consultations to discuss your project aspirations in depth. A site visit will be required before we can provide an accurate fee proposal. During the visit we can assess site constraints, pressures and statutory requirements likely to effect your proposals and advise accordingly.
Building / Site Survey
We can undertake measured surveys of properties or building sites and prepare existing plans, sections and elevations in 2D & 3D. We advise on potential constraints of a site and the likely need for any specialist consultant advice i.e party wall, rights to light, ecology, arborilogical, archeology etc.
We work closely with you to prepare initial proposals before agreeing on a 'frozen' design. During this process we can produce 3D visualisations, fly-through videos and 360 degree panoramas to enable you to actively experience and input into the design at an early stage.
Milbank prepare and submit detailed drawings for planning permission, along with all supplementary documentation. Throughout the planning application process we provide experienced guidance to allow speedy resolution of any issues which may arise. This includes help with discharging planning conditions, planning disputes or appeals.
Milbank act as a single point of contact for you throughout the construction phase & ensure a smooth journey on-site. We provide efficient and experienced organisation and co-ordination of design and construction teams in a "one-stop" approach for all construction projects.
Should your project involve more than one contractor, as client you are legally required to appoint a Principal Designer and Principal Contractor. Milbank are a certified CMaPS member, meaning you can be assured we have the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to undertake the Principal Designer role.
BIM is a means by which everyone can understand a building through the use of a digital model. By signalling conflict detection - BIM prevents errors creeping into various stages of development and construction. We provide BIM level 2 and 3 modelling/co-ordination for clients, contractors & suppliers at very competitive rates.
Milbank produce high quality building regulation drawing packages and specifications fully detailed to meet statutory requirements.. We submit applications to building control on your behalf and work with both Private and Local Authority building inspectors.
Tender & Construction
We prepare construction drawings and schedules of works to issue to prospective contractors for pricing. This enables you to seek competitive prices for clearly defined works which minimises risk and enables the project to progress in a controlled and smooth manner, with an improved level of cost certainty. We advise on the most suitable type of building contract dependent on the scale and complexity of the works, safeguarding both client and contractor.
