In the UK, getting planning permission at the first attempt is rare
Catastrophic technical errors are too common and what should be simple design tasks somehow become wildly overcomplicated. Planning consultants and architects give you conflicting advice and all too often you are left feeling patronised or ignored by the experts you are paying.
And you may discover that schedule and budget overruns are considered so standard for construction projects that nobody seems to feel it’s worth trying to prevent them.
We don’t think that any of this is inevitable, still less acceptable. Instead, we believe that technical thinking and creative enthusiasm with the right blend of expertise, experience, and imagination make a real difference in meeting the challenges of building projects.
For this reason, we are committed to an approach that puts a wide range of skills and hard-won knowledge at your disposal.
Oriented towards our founding values, the whole idea of Urbanist Architecture is to put you in a position where you don’t have to experience the frustrations, unnecessary expense and confusion too often associated with trying to build something in the UK.
