About Josef Architecture

Hi, Joe here again... So here's a little more information about what I do and how I might be of help to you.

I have worked in domestic construction for over 25 years. Early in my career I worked as a Project Manager, running residential refurbishment projects with values in excess of £1M. Between 1998 and 2014, I owned and ran a medium sized building company specializing in domestic extensions and loft conversions etc.

I started Josef Architecture in 2006 to run alongside my building company and offer architectural design support to our clients. Since then however, things have changed and I now provide a whole host of building consultancy services to homeowners that may be looking to improve, extend, or even build their own abodes.

Some of the services I can help you with are as follows:

Planning drawings and consents
Building regulation drawings and approvals
Structural calculations
Building cost projections

Planning home improvements is not just about good design. There are so many things to think about and simply hundreds of pitfalls too. I am here to help every step of the way. I will work with you to ensure your project is designed well, it's within your budget and, if required, I can help you select a reliable and skilled builder to make your dream a reality.
