STAGE 1

Planning & Design

This pivotal initial stage lays the groundwork for the entire project, ensuring a solid foundation for future success. Through meticulous planning and comprehensive analysis, we pave the way for seamless progression into the construction Detail and compliance stage.

 

Key services provided during Stage 1 include:

 

  • Understanding of client brief and requirements

  • Evaluating client budget constraints

  • Examination of construction preferences, including environmentally friendly considerations such as eco-building methodologies

  • Conducting a detailed measured survey of the property

  • Generating existing drawings to accurately depict the property's current state

  • Developing proposed drawings, offering up to three design alternatives

  • Facilitating client meetings post-draft designs to ensure alignment with their vision

  • Providing concept views and immersive VR experiences for enhanced visualization

  • Management of planning application submission and liaising with relevant council authorities throughout the process.

  • Upon successful planning approval, seamless transition to Stage 2 of the project timeline. In the event of planning refusal, collaborative efforts are undertaken to address concerns, potentially revising proposals or pursuing appeal options. Should an appeal be initiated, additional services, whether in-house or outsourced, are provided to support the process.

 

It's essential to highlight that completing Stage 1 does not obligate you to proceed to Stage 2. We understand that circumstances can change, and you maintain the flexibility to decide whether to move forward to the next phase. Your satisfaction and peace of mind remain our top priorities throughout the entire journey.

STAGE 2

Construction Detail & Compliance

In this crucial second stage, our focus shifts to the intricate details of construction and ensuring compliance with regulatory standards.
 
Key aspects of our Stage 2 service include:
 
  • Internal Alterations and Finish Details: We provide clients with the opportunity to refine internal layouts and delve into the specifics of finishes. This allows for a tailored approach to electrical and plumbing layouts, ensuring optimal functionality and aesthetics.
  • Development of Planning Drawings: Building upon the original planning drawings, we further refine them to incorporate detailed construction specifications, including annotations and notes essential for building control submission.
  • Review and Revision: Following refinement, the drawings undergo thorough revision and are re-issued to the client for review. This ensures clarity and alignment with the project vision before proceeding to the next stage.
  • Building Control Submission: With careful attention to detail, we submit revised drawings and supporting documentation to building control authorities, whether local councils or private entities, for comprehensive review and approval.
 
Stage 2 represents a pivotal phase in the project timeline, where careful attention to detail and adherence to regulatory standards are paramount. Our commitment to excellence ensures that your project progresses smoothly while maintaining compliance with industry requirements."

STAGE 3

Specification & Build Prices

In this pivotal third stage, we focus on finalizing specifications and determining the build price. Key aspects of our Stage 3 service include:
 
  • Client Consultation for Finish Selection: We arrange a meeting with the client to discuss finish preferences and determine which elements will be excluded from the builder's price, such as purchasing kitchen or bathroom goods, and selecting floor finishes etc.
  • Builder Selection Process: Clients are given the opportunity to choose three builders from our approved network to receive tender invitations.
  • Creation of Basic Specification: We develop a basic specification to provide builders with necessary details for fair pricing. A lower-level summary sheet is issued to the client for review and potential adjustments.
  • Tender Issue and Meetings: Upon completion of the specification, all chosen builders are invited to tender. Tender documentation is distributed, and meetings between the selected builders and the client are scheduled.
  • Price Analysis and Summary: Following receipt of tenders, we conduct a comprehensive price analysis. A tender analysis summary is compiled and sent to the client for review.
 
At this stage, our focus is on ensuring that specifications meet client expectations and that builders are provided with accurate information for pricing. Through careful analysis and transparent communication, we strive to facilitate informed decision-making and progress smoothly towards the next stage of the project."

STAGE 4

Build Supervision 

In this crucial fourth stage, our focus shifts to overseeing the construction process and ensuring project success. Key elements of our Stage 4 service include:
 
  • Builder Selection Confirmation: Upon client selection of a builder and confirmation to proceed to Stage 4, written confirmation is provided. Successful and unsuccessful builders are notified accordingly.
  • Contract Drafting and Finalisation: A JCT contract is drafted, outlining payment terms and establishing the project start date. Both the client and builder are requested to sign the contract, ensuring mutual agreement and clarity.
  • Pre-Works Condition Survey: Before commencement of building works, a basic condition survey is conducted on retained elements closest to the works. This safeguards against potential damage left unrepaired post-completion.
  • Ongoing Project Monitoring: Throughout the construction phase, JAGMA conducts weekly project reviews and maintains regular communication with the client to ensure satisfaction and address any concerns promptly.
  • Payment Valuations and Quality Checks: Payment valuations, as per the contract terms, are undertaken alongside regular quality checks to ensure adherence to standards and compliance with specifications.
  • Scope Alterations Management: Any significant alterations to the scope of works are reported to JAGMA for assessment, allowing for necessary adjustments to the contract sum if required.
  • Finalisation and Handover: As completion nears, building works undergo thorough snagging for quality control, with any remediation works addressed promptly. A post-works condition survey is conducted, followed by full handover to the client, including sign-off documentation.
 
Stage 4 encompasses comprehensive build supervision and project management, ensuring adherence to timelines, quality standards, and client satisfaction from start to finish.
