Call Out

One of our architects will call out to your home to carry out a survey and take some photographs. During the visit, we will discuss the areas of your home that you would like to change, talk about your “wish list” and discover how you would like to live in your home.

1. Fully dimensioned A3 design layout plans for each option.
2. 3D illustrations.
3. A look and feel guide you can call on to help you take your project further with supplier & builder recommendations.

On completion of the report, which usually takes 4 weeks, we will meet you again in our offices to go through our proposals and recommendations personally.
If you have any questions, we will be happy to go through them with you on the day.
