What we do
Gary Johns Architects exist because we want to improve peoples' lives through our buildings, and we want to enjoy the process of designing and delivering our projects.
Our process is set out within our BS 9001 quality assurance system. We follow this process for each project, irrespective of size or type. There are three key steps that must be defined before we can commence any project:-
Defining your brief
Defining your budget
Understanding your budget is as important as understanding your brief. There is no value in us designing a building that you cannot afford to build. If we are concerned that your brief is not deliverable within your budget, we will endeavour to let you know as soon as it becomes apparent.
Defining your programme
Our main role as architects is to communicate our ideas and designs from conception through to completion to all stakeholders of a project. We can do this through a combination of skill, experience and technology.
BIM (Building Information Modelling)
All our designs begin life in 3 dimensions using Building Information Modelling software (BIM), allowing us to quickly explore design solutions and convey them to clients, planners, consultants and contractors. Effective decisions can be made throughout the design process, increasing the likelihood of getting onto site quicker, and keeping costs under control.
Our clients also have the advantage of having an intelligent model to interrogate post construction, enhancing their ability to maintain their buildings into the future.
