Working with an Architect for your Home


The first thing we do as architects is ask questions, listen and understand what you are trying to achieve. We will work with you to develop your project brief and finalise the budget. It is essential that you agree this before starting the project.

We will develop solutions and propose ways to reduce costs whilst coming up with a design that will increase the building’s value.

OIA will guide you through a whole range of processes  from coming up with an initial design to seeing the project through planning and construction to completion based on the RIBA plan of work which is available on request

OIA Architects will provide a full range or advice and ideas for your new home with supporting cost advice and planning implications, within a brief written report after the initial consultation.

A useful document from the RIBA  to give advice on the process for appointing an architect can be obtained from the link below:-


At OIA our initial consultations range from £250-£500 depending on the size of project. This fee is donated to our charity of choice Help for Hero’s. Initial telephone calls or video conference meetings are free of charge for a call of thirty minutes.
