Design Management Consultancy Package

Greenfields Design Ltd offer a design consultancy package in which we will act on your behalf to oversee all aspects of the design process.  You will benefit from one contact point whilst we use our contacts and close working relationships with engineers, surveyors and timber frame manufacturers etc.

Feasibility Study

As part of our Design Management Consultancy Package we will prepare a Feasibility Study following the Concept Design stage. This will allow us to estimate a project budget based on the design, finishes and location of the plot. It will highlight likely costs and possible savings. The Feasibility Study includes the following sections:

  •   Abbreviated Cost Breakdown
  •   Design Assumptions
  •   Build Route (i.e. Self Build, Main Contractor, DIY Project Manager)
  •   New Dwelling VAT Description
  •   Additional Costs (i.e. Design Fee’s, Local Authority Fee’s, Utilty instalation Fee’s)
