Our integrated residential design and build service covers Bristol, Bath and the surrounding areas.
Our integrated design and build approach encourages innovation, enhances design quality and delivers greater value for money.
INTEGRATED DESIGN & BUILD
View Living was created by a partnership between an architect's practice and a firm of builders to address the fundamental shortcomings associated with traditional methods of project management in the residential sector.
A successful building project depends on the collaboration of many partners: the client, the architect, specialist designers and consultants, the builder, subcontractors, suppliers and statutory authorities. View Living's design and build approach integrates all members of the team from stage 1 and retains their expertise beyond handover to deliver appropriate aftercare. Genuine collaboration from the early project stages reduces the risk of human error, saves cost, encourages innovation and enhances design quality.
VALUE FOR MONEY
The management of financial risk is dependent on the elimination of uncertainty. This is achieved by collating and preparing accurate information and incorporating the practical experience and prices from specialists before the design is completed.
View Living's integrated design and build approach ensures surveys, site investigations and consultations with specialist suppliers and subcontractors are carried out at a much earlier stage. This ensures the design and cost plan are accurate.
In addition, provisional or approximate prices and inflated costs to cover risk can be eliminated. Our approach reduces uncertainty, minimises financial risk and allows us to deliver greater value for money.
Our in-house design team includes corporate members of the Royal Institute of British Architects, registered members of the Architects' Registration Board and chartered members of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists.
The design team is supported by engineers, town planning experts and specialist consultants such as ecologists and highways engineers.
The design process follows a strict quality management system based on the international standard ISO 9000:2015. This ensures all aspects of our service are delivered to the highest standards.
CONSTRUCTION BEST PRACTICE
The expertise of our in-house construction team is included in the process from the beginning which allows practical knowledge of construction techniques, products and materials to be fully incorporated into the design. This makes the solution easier to build saving time and money.
An integrated design and build process facilitates a faster, more effective workflow, with enhanced coordination and cost control.
Our construction team is lead in-house by an award willing firm of builders with over 30 years relevant experience. They are supported by approved subcontractors with a proven track record delivering challenging residential projects.
Many clients have a keen interest in environmental sustainability and want to minimise energy use. We acknowledge the services we provide can have a significant impact on the environment. We carefully consider the selection of materials, site waste and recycling and strive to build with the highest levels of insulation and air tightness. Our designs are prepared in consultation with experts to integrate the latest sustainable technology and best practice construction techniques.
We relish the challenge creating sustainable homes. This can only be achieved when the client and all members of the team work collaboratively and share the same aim. Our experienced integrated team of designers and builders will ensure your sustainable objectives are successfully delivered.
