Working with the right experts is essential when navigating either a new build or home renovation. Here's why...

No matter how clear your vision, there can be many hurdles, many of which unseen and unexpected, that you’ll encounter when building a new home from scratch or taking on an extensive renovation. The best way to anticipate and plan for these problems? Employ an experienced and agile architect.

From the ground up

Any architect worth their salt knows that no two projects are ever alike. Each comes with its own unique set of challenges, whether physical or budgetary, regulations-based or with the scope and management of the project itself.

Working closely with an experienced and visionary architect, such as those at Shaw & Jagger Architects, means you can clear many of those hurdles before the build even starts in earnest.

Turning ideas into technical reality

Shaw & Jagger is able to turn your ideas into plans that can then be realised, with a team of architects who can suggest adjustments, offer ideas you might not have even thought possible and navigate potential issues ahead of time.

That’s particularly important when you’re looking at building or changing a home in greenbelt land, conservation areas or an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. They also specialise in achieving planning approvals for projects, knowing what works where and looking for solutions for tricky proposals. They’ll undertake all the necessary consultations and commission any vital reports as part of their inclusive approach.

A trusted track record

Being able to see previously completed projects is a great way to build trust in an architectural firm, and Shaw & Jagger has a truly impressive portfolio that displays its skillset and versatility to the fullest.

From complete designs of new buildings to renovations, extensions, furniture design, refurbishment and more, its track record takes in scheduled ancient monuments, stunning marriages of contemporary design with traditional materials and a breathtaking Passivhaus build. All are testament to the benefits of an architect-led project.
