Architectural design and construction project management

PCMS Design offer the following services: architectural design, CAD plans and drawings, planning permission and building control approvals, specification of works, appointment of building contractors, construction project management, interior design, feasibility studies, structural calculations and technical specifications. 

With an established track record in designing and managing construction projects across the education, community, residential and commercial sectors, PCMS Design brings a high level of expertise alongside the friendly approach you'd expect from a small firm of dedicated professionals. If you are planning a home extension or new build, a school, village hall or community centre development project, or would like to transform your office or commercial premises, then we can help. 

With a free initial consultation and transparent fee structure, we work to ensure that your project is delivered on time, with the minimum of fuss and disruption. We take away the stress of planning application and approvals processes by liaising directly with Planning Officers, and work with you to select contractors who will fulfil your project requirements.

Sustainable design

PCMS Design is committed to the cause of environmental sustainability in all of our operations and design decisions. Sustainability is always at the forefront of our thinking: from the earliest design concepts, via environmentally aware specifications, and within the construction process. 

Because environmental considerations are increasingly important to any building project, PCMS Design always endeavours to specify the most eco-friendly construction materials to ensure a sustainable build. We stay up to date with innovations that come onto the market, and can offer ideas to include in your build that will potentially cut the costs of running your home or building. 

When planning your design, we will always consider the use of renewable energy sources to generate heat and hot water, such as ground or air source heat pumps and solar panels. Most of our public sector projects now feature ‘green’ sedum roofs. The options available will be fully outlined and discussed with you in advance.
