Design & Build

Crawford & Co. Construction offers a comprehensive architectural design and build service, designing your scheme from initial concept to fully costed design. Our architectural design team tailor the design to suit your individual style and budget, and have the experience and knowledge to successfully navigate the planning process. We create exceptional living spaces, designed, constructed and meticulously planned to maximise contemporary living requirements, while emphasising your own personality, taste and design flair.

Our design fees are extremely competitive and the fee structure very simple. We charge a fixed cost for concepts and planning, then a further fixed cost for the construction package. Once the build goes live, all project management fees are covered within the build price, making the Design & Build route a very cost-effective choice against a traditional Architect / Contractor model.


We start the design phase by conducting a measured survey of the site. We may also recommend that some searches are done. These could include statutory utility searches and legal searches to identify any restricted covenant or easements that could impact the project. Following these investigations we’ll then draw up suggested designs to an agreed client brief. This conceptual stage is a very enjoyable collaborative process where we work with you to refine the optimum layout for your needs and maximise the potential of your property.

Once the concepts are signed off we submit the relevant applications and manage the planning process throughout.


Prior to commencement on site we prepare a detailed technical drawing package for construction and building control approval, integrating the structural engineer’s drawings and any other specialist information. Once the construction pack is finalised we produce a fully itemised and costed scope of works.

Our approach is to work closely with our clients, making all critical decisions before the build goes live. This enables us to then hand over a comprehensive pack to the construction team. They know exactly what they are to build and you know exactly what it is going to cost.
