We seek to add value at every stage whether we become involved from the initial briefing and conceptual stages or taking on an approved scheme through detailed design or managing the process onsite.
KODA architects work collaboratively with all members of the team throughout the RIBA work stages. We pride ourselves in working collaboratively work the wider design team whether it be planning and other local authority representatives through the professional network and onto the site progress, working with contractors and future purchasers to maximise the outcomes for all.
Agreeing the Brief
As part of our ongoing process we work together closely with our clients to meet their brief. We ensure that the brief meets with the constraints and opportunities with each site as each site is different. The brief is a developing document which may change as the design process continues. Were always happy to consider a new approach to take full advantage of the site.
Meeting Budgetary Requirements
The team at KODA architects work closely with our wider team. Once a concept design has been developed we would work with our professional network in establishing a outline cost estimate for the project. At this early stage the design is easy to change to meet with budgets making a calculation of return quickly scoped out.
Developing the Design
Working together with KODA architects approved and established team of consultants and in house specialisms, our process is one of collaboration where we can add value to each stage of the proposal. Developing the initial design is where as architects can put the most added value in to a development. It's not all just about squeezing in as many units as possible but about establishing communities and places maximising market appeal.
Planning and Statutory Approvals
The team at KODA architects work closely with local authorities through designing schemes which meet with local and national planning policies. Where applicable we would expand out team to work with professional planning consultants.
With building regulations increasing and more pressure on the environment that surrounds us, we have a greater need to protect what is there. KODA architects have a strong commitment to the environment which helps limit the negative impact of new developments in our landscape.
Detailed Design and Construction
Meeting the balance between fine architecture detailing and design against cost effect buildability can be a challenge. However drawing on our many years of experience we are thinking about this critical part from the outset to ensure that the finish product meeting with the outcomes set at our initial meeting and achieve maximum market values.
Return and Review

This is demonstrated through many clients using us time and again as their chosen architect and lead consultant.
