Work in progress
Adrian Barrett has completed several hundred architectural projects successfully since he established his practice in 1977 after having completed some 15 years in contracting, construction and small works management.
In both the UK and France fully detailed drawings, plans and specifications are required by statute before any building project can be considered formally and planning consent granted.
Adrian meets clients to exchange and discuss ideas, to develop ideas on detail and to establish costs. He produces all the necessary drawings of the building as existing and as proposed, together with working details of the project. He also provides specifications, providing geographical references and photographs as well as other pieces of information required to make a formal planning submissions. The planning submission usually includes building regulations applications or in France, the Permis de Construire.
Adrian makes site visits as required to check standards and progress and to deal with any unforeseen problems.
NB Full supervision (on site ALL the time) is available only by special arrangement and at additional cost.
All accounts from contractors (interim and final) are checked against the value of completed work on site before payment certificates can be issued to the client and the contractor paid.
