“I’ve worked with SPACE Designed Solutions for over ten years. Lee and the team are extremely professional and make constructing new builds and extensions a very simple process

A step-by-step guide to how we work

Free Initial Consultation

A site visit and meeting is usually needed to meet to assess the project. This is without obligation, and will be followed by a written Fee Proposal from ourselves, which we look for agreement to before commencing works fully.

Survey & Sketch Scheme

We will measure the site/building and interpret your instructions to produce a scheme we feel best fits the brief. This allows SPACE to get to know the task at hand and test ideas, as they present themselves, which we then present to you for comment. From that work, your brief, and our joint discussions, we are then able to agree a scheme in broad principle.

Detailed Design

Principle direction agreed we will then prepare detailed scaled drawings showing the scope of works for you to appraise. We look for and encourage feedback.

PLANNING PERMISSION

We then submit on your behalf the scheme for Planning Permission describing the underlying approach and justification behind the proposal. Grant of Planning Approval confers the legal right to carry out the development on the land/buildings in principle, in accordance with the approved design. Please note some small schemes do not require planning consent.

Building Regulations

More detailed drawings and written specifications are prepared to describe the scheme technically. We submit these to the relevant Building Control body on your behalf. Building Regulations Approval as per the detailed drawings and specification signifies that the work carried is at least to the national minimum standards. You will need this on all but the simplest projects.

Tender Action / On-Site Supervision

We can competitively tender the project for you, or negotiate with a chosen builder, as you decide. We are also able to monitor and advise on the project once the project gets on site. We have been doing this sort of work for over twenty five years now and have gained much experience in seeing a project over the finish line.

  • “Through word of mouth, we heard about SPACE Designed Solutions and weren’t disappointed. We immediately found Lee approachable and he LISTENED to what we wanted to do; sympathetic to our ideas and helping us to develop a fab design which met all our needs. His input was invaluable to our cause - in no way imposing his own ideas but advising us to eke out the best options all round. Now in building phase and looking forward to his ongoing guidance - Happy customers.”

    - Jill & Alex Hone

  • “SPACE Designed Solutions have worked in partnership with our school for many years. Lee listens to the brief and creates amazing designs which are always within tight budgets and space restrictions. The children love working in their new classroom, which is bright, airy and innovative. The group staff room has been cleverly designed to allow both children and staff a relaxed and workable space which has multiple uses. Lee makes the best use of design elements, researching new materials to best fit the design.”

    - Sally Linsley Headteacher, Warcop School

  • “Lee Page and SPACE Designed Solutions have been instrumental in enabling my business to double in the last 6 years; not just with practical sympathetic designs which work in the National Park, but also with navigating through the increased complexities and constraints that come with an SSSI and Listed building site.”

    - Colin Hindle, Granny Dowbekins, Pooley Bridge

  • “I delayed my project for quite a while trying to find a really creative and proactive architect who thrived on the quirky and the unusual.  Someone who would appreciate a demanding client who knew what he wanted.  A friend introduced me to Lee and, as they say, the rest is history.  The finished job is exactly what I dreamed of.  One other important thing - Lee has excellent trade contacts who all work to same highest standards.”
