At Carter Jonas we understand that clients often need to see a realistic interpretation of a proposed space, whether it is a small extension, an office interior or a new build, before moving forward. Having an in-house 3D rendering service allows us to provide a strong perception of the space that is being designed. We can engage with the client in a way that just would not be possible without the use of such technology.
We will explore alternative design approaches through feasibility studies and sketch designs, selecting the optimum solution that best suits your needs. The creation of a bespoke tailored solution for your living, working or recreational needs will require your full involvement. Your architect should identify imaginative solutions that meet your functional requirements, yet lift the mundane to become something truly special.
Taking on the project management of your build is a balancing act of objectives. You can think of this as the self-build triangle, with the three points being time, money and quality - which all affect each other.
Should one point run over you can expect a detrimental and often costly consequence as a result.
Fortunately Our experienced project management teams are comprised of experienced and professionally qualified construction experts and highly trained junior staff and graduates, who work together to achieve the successful delivery of any building project.
