Beyond the traditional services of the architect, we are accustomed to being employed as planning consultants when clients require help to navigate the way ahead either before a development has been initiated, or more often, when the going gets tough and the need to disentangle a planning conundrum has been identified.
It can make all the difference to important decisions, to know the planning context of a project at any given stage as a means of evaluating and managing risk for the future, and predicting or avoiding potential costs. The Spanish scene can be mystifying to the outsider, so one vital skill which we offer is the ability to throw light on the situation which you find yourself in, by grappling with the relevant legislation, talking to the authorities, and giving you a clear perspective of the factors involved in planning applications and approvals. This type of role is not easy to define exactly, since by its nature it varies according to the peculiarities of any given context and problem.
Given that we are able to offer planning consultancy as a specialisation, our expertise as architects will inevitably give you the advantage of being able to see solutions that are not only going to work legally, in line with planning policy, but are also going to lead relatively seamlessly to an architectural proposal.
This versatility is always going to ensure that you are offered an integrated approach and the best value when it comes to both consultancy and design development.
