Architecture Services

We offer a complete architectural design service up to the production of proposals for submission as a part of a planning application.

Briefing and Exploration – Work Stage 1

The early stages of any architectural design process are dedicated to understanding the vision for the project and exploring the potential that a development site offers. A well defined and robustly tested brief provides the foundation from which an efficient and effective design process can begin.

RCA Regeneration will work with all relevant project stakeholders to receive and develop the brief in terms of the required volume, quality and nature of the proposed accommodation alongside the project budget, timescale and any funding requirements. The close integration of the RCA Regeneration architectural, development and planning teams in the early project stages provides the potential for a joined up approach to the assessments of a development site.

The development of feasibility layouts provides the opportunity to test a number of varying approaches to the development of a site, in a cost effective manner, with the aim of establishing the optimum volume, arrangement and distribution of accommodation.

During this work stage RCA Regeneration will typically be able to offer the following services:

  • Site Visit & Appraisal
  • Design Team Advice and / or Management
  • Brief Development
  • Feasibility Studies (capacity & viability assessment)
  • Assist in setting project Sustainability Strategy with specialist consultants
  • Assist in preparing a project programme and obtaining project cost information
