In a world increasingly concerned about the environmental impact of our actions, PCMS aims for the most energy efficient methods of construction. We specify natural or recycled materials wherever feasible in order to ensure that our projects are as environmentally friendly and as carbon neutral as possible. This is part of the eco-friendly approach that informs our design on both existing and new buildings.
Residential designs follow the Code for Sustainable Homes. For commercial and public sector projects, PCMS benchmarks designs against the BREEAM criteria.
Spending money wisely is a priority for most of us, and at PCMS we ensure that the designs we produce for you can be built affordably. The energy efficiency measures we integrate into project designs results in lower running costs for our buildings.
With PCMS, you will know the fees involved from the outset so that you can budget accordingly, and there are no hidden charges. At PCMS we also understand the importance of fixing as many project costs as possible. This includes our fees.
We charge a fixed fee based on the estimated construction cost and the work involved. Whereas some companies will continue to charge additional sums if the project is delayed or goes over deadline, PCMS delivers projects for the quoted fee.
This is just one of the many advantages of using PCMS for your architectural design and project management services. Please contact PCMS for a more detailed discussion of the fees on offer to you.
