Whether you are building an extension, designing a new home or improving the energy efficiency of your house or office, Collier Reading Architects have a broad skills palette and provide a wide range of architect services in Somerset. We will identify the services to be provided in our agreement and our fee will depend on the scope of this appointment, which could include some or all of the following services.

At our free initial consultation we will determine the level of service you require and we will be able to advise on the feasibility, likelihood of planning permission, construction processes and overall likely costs. We generally only expect a cup of coffee and a cream cake for this advice! We will then set out our fee proposals for consideration and only commence work when clear instructions have been received.
