Initial Meeting

RIBA Work Stages 0-1

The design process will begin with an initial meeting at our offices or on site depending on client preferences. This meeting will lead to design briefing that will define the objectives for your project. We will help you to define your brief and advise you on the best way forward for your project.

Outline Design

RIBA Work Stages 2-3

During the design process the client will be fully involved with the projects development. We will discuss each and every aspect of the design proposals as well as providing drawings, material samples and 3D rendered perspective images to help illustrate the design. When the client is happy with the design a Planning Application is submitted at the end of this stage.

Detailed Design

RIBA Work Stage 4

The design process begins with a meeting at your property. This initial design session lasts for either half a day or a full day, depending on your requirements. We will help to define your brief and advise on the best way forward for the project.


RIBA Work Stages 5-7

At this stage we will continue to develop your project from planning approval to technical design using detailed drawings, schedules and sections to describe the proposed works. These will be submitted to the local Building Control Authority for approval and will also form part of the tender package if a competitive tender is to be carried out for your project.

"As we live outside of Northern Ireland we have the confidence to entrust OJQ to manage all aspects of the build to turn-key finish." BA&SE Higgins – Southend-on-Sea, Essex
