Common Ground Workshop work closely with our homeowner & residential clients from the outset of every new project, taking time to fully understand and develop the client’s brief and to ensure that all aspirations and client specific requirements are captured. So that a project can get off on the best possible footing, once appointed we undertake an on-site meeting and building survey and endeavor to quickly build a detailed understanding the site so that the budget and the outline spatial brief can be tested and firmed up. This reduces the chances of any unforeseen surprises later on. 

Our process

We understand that house renovation and development is often the largest investment that our homeowner clients will make in their lifetimes, and accordingly, each project is overseen by one of our company directors from start to finish to ensure that the budgetary, aesthetic, sustainable and specific lifestyle aspirations of our client are being met and carried through at every stage of a project.  

We keep our clients informed and fully engaged throughout all RIBA work stages and utilise our extensive residential and interior design experience to develop designs that delight and that maximize value. At every stage we undertake regular project design and development meetings with our clients to ensure that the resulting scheme proposals are aligned with the brief and are to the highest possible standard, surpassing expectations and giving our clients confidence in their investment. To ensure the highest quality of service throughout the life-cycle of the project, Directors Jack and Mark will oversee the development of the works to ensure that the client’s ambitions and needs are never compromised and that a clear line of communication is retained as the project grows in complexity.

Being both a design focused and a commercially minded practice we are in the best possible position to guide our clients through the design, statutory, technical and construction process and to project manage the cost, programme and the main contractor during the construction works.

To date we have achieved a wide variety of outstanding homes for our clients and would love to hear from you if you are considering a new project. Please contact us for more information on how we can help you to realise your dream home.
