The process that we follow is dependent on the requirements of your project. All enquiries initially arrive with the Directors who then allocate staff and resources to develop and deliver the scheme. You will find all of our team professional and collaborative, keen to work with you to realise your project. 
A typical process we may go through on a design & build project could be as follows: 


A potential client makes contact - often this is repeat custom, recommendation, or driven by a similar project seen on our website or social media. 
An initial informal conversation ascertains the broad requirements, and we then arrange a site meeting with an appropriate senior member of our team. 
We discuss the work onsite, testing ideas, looking at site practicalities and developing the brief. 
Next steps are agreed - usually a priced proposal and timeframe, often with costed options depending on requirements. 
Appointment, agreeing any form of contract to be used, payment schedule, guidance on applicable legislation and permitting etc. 

Design stage 

Often the design stage can be accurately priced, while the construction phase may be provided as an estimate until a detailed design is agreed. 
Our design team would produce an outline design with construction costs for initial feedback and approval. 
Amendments to the design as requested, followed by proceeding to detailed design. 
On approval of the final construction drawings and specification we can then produce an accurate quote for the construction phase. 
On instruction, we then commence application for any statutory permitting requirements, dependent on the particulars of the scheme. 

Construction phase 

Upon obtaining any necessary permits the work can commence on site. 
Morton : Pattison will produce all relevant health and safety documentation, advising you of any responsibilities and managing the preparation and site processes. 
Regular progress updates will keep you informed, including site meetings with you if required. 
We ensure that our supervisory and site staff have the appropriate skills, knowledge, training and experience to deliver your scheme safely to the desired high standard, price and timeline. 


The end of the project would involve meeting with you onsite to ensure that you are happy with the work and to identify any additional or finishing items that are required before we leave site. 
We would then close down the site, make good and start to plan your next project.
