Collaborative Design Process

At Found Associates, we pride ourselves on our collaborative design process, ensuring that our clients are integral to the development of their project. Our approach is to work closely with each client, understanding their vision and bringing it to life with our expertise.

Client Involvement

From the outset, we invite our clients to be part of the journey. Our client-focused architectural and interiors service begins with a free consultation, where we meet at the property to discuss the vision for the project. This initial meeting allows us to understand the client’s needs and preferences, setting the foundation for a bespoke design solution.

Understanding that each client is unique, we offer additional meetings, including visits to potential properties. These meetings are crucial in crafting a tailored design brief that reflects the individuality of the client and the distinctive character of their future home.

As part of the collaborative process, we encourage ongoing dialogue throughout the project. We believe that communication is key to ensuring that the client’s aspirations are met and that any concerns are addressed promptly. Our goal is to create a seamless and enjoyable experience for our clients, culminating in a space that they love and are proud to call home.

Design Development and Execution

Once we have established a clear understanding of our client’s desires, we move into the design development phase. Our services encompass every aspect of design and build, from concept design to obtaining planning and building control approvals, to detail design and on-site attendance during the construction phase. We provide comprehensive support, ensuring that the design is not only aesthetically pleasing but also practical and sustainable.

Our team offers expertise in creating detailed 3D visualisations, allowing clients to envisage their project before any construction begins.

During the construction phase, our project team plays an integral role in the on-site execution, overseeing the progress and quality of the build. We coordinate with all members of the project team to ensure that the project remains on budget, adheres to the timeline, and meets our high standards of build quality.
