Our 6 Step Process

D2 offer clients a full range of services including architecture, project management, interior design, space planning and feasibility studies, from project inception to completion. The practice boasts an expansive, diverse portfolio of projects undertaken to date and can assist in all project requirements including the following:

Step 1Feasibility

We offer a free initial consultation to discuss any client ideas, potential solutions and the feasibility of any proposed designs. We try to bring our established team of consultants and builders in together at an early stage to ensure our clients can meet everyone involved and we can collaborate on the brief together with a view to resolving and ‘de-risking’ all potential issues at a very early stage.

Step 2Planning (& Listed Building Consent) applications

We strive to form positive consultation channels with regional planning authorities with a view to establishing a productive relationship that benefits all of our clients throughout the planning application procedure.

We also work closely with a planning consultant to enhance the design team if required.

Step 3Building warrant applications

D2 was recently invited to become members of our local authority building standards focus group. This is as a result of the quantity and quality of our submissions with this local authority. We have a very strong collaborative relationship with local authorities throughout central Scotland and further afield which we believe to be critical to delivering best service to our clients.

Step 4Tender

From our approved framework of builders/contractors, we can assist with procuring market indications, outline and detailed costs.

We work closely with a well established firm of Quantity Surveyors with whom we collaborate on all matters financial.

Step 5Construction and project management

We firmly believe in delivering the best service to our clients without creating additional and unnecessary fees. As such we offer a variety of ‘on site’ services from whole project management to pro-rata engagements.

Step 6Interior design and 3D

We have a close relationship with several interior designers and this coupled with our staff members, who are versed in AutoCAD, Sketch-up and Revit, can deliver fully detailed visuals to allow the client to realise their brief.
