At XAMI we pride ourselves in delivering a one-stop architecture and design service from initial concept to completion.  Our only goal is to provide our clients, with a highly professional service that fully meets - and exceeds - their expectations by producing highly refined architecture that is tailored to your requirements. We pay attention to the smallest details to deliver excellence in full collaboration with you at all stages.

Stages of your project

The architect you choose should have a rigorous approach to project planning and management. We follow the latest RIBA plan of work. This proven process assures that the work is done methodically, comprehensively and to the highest possible standards.


Concept & Design Development

We provide a free initial consultation either by phone/zoom or by visiting your property, if you wish. Then we take a detailed brief from you and provide a range of very realistic 3D-images and suggestions of how we envision your requirements.  Once you have chosen which direction you would like your home to look like, we prepare detailed architectural drawings.


Planning Applications

We apply for planning permission to the council (planning authority) on your behalf.  We negotiate with the planning department to ensure that the application has a smooth and rapid progression through their rigorous processes. Our success rate is second to none


Building Control Applications

We apply to the planning authority or private building controllers to provide oversight of the structural changes to your property. We prepare all party wall documents and agree them with party wall surveyors.


Tender Development

We work in close collaboration with structural engineers to determine the best way of achieving our designs. The engineer produces structural drawings and calculations based on our detailed architectural drawings. When everything is to your satisfaction we invite tenders from builders who can be suggested by yourselves or whom you chose from our suggestions of trusted builders whose high standards we have experienced and supervised for our previous projects.
