Enhancing Property Value:

Whether you want to achieve an ultra-modern, traditional or exquisitely sleek design for your home BDK Architects will provide you with a fabulous solution. We have a strong reputation for high-end Award Winning designs, delivering added value. Underlining our approach is Enhancing Property Value, so our Clients ends up with a result that is more than they expected adding real value to their property. One of our particular attributes is our expertise with producing 3 dimensional building modelling for every project. BDK Architects design using state of the art CAD technology, from which we will give you a Virtual Building Model for exploring at leisure on your own computer at design stage, and also provide life-like virtual reality three-dimensional images. The ability to comprehend what the end result will look like at an early stage is an important benefit our Clients enjoy, appreciate and find immensely valuable.

BDK have expert knowledge of Planning Policies enabling us to give you authoritative advice about what is likely to be acceptable for your house or site. For example we have recently advised an owner of a large house in the Green Zone on Island Plan Policy supporting
sub-division into several smaller dwellings. This has the potential of enabling owners of large houses, which they are finding difficult to sell, to down-size at the same time realising Enhanced Property Value.


On another Green Zone site we designed an exclusive modern four-bedroom house replacing a run-down bungalow, resulting in an inherited asset worth £650K being increased to £1.25M when we secured planning consent and our Client sold the site for substantially Enhanced Property Value. Another great case where BDK Architects realised a substantial enhancement of Property Value for our Client.

It makes sense to consult BDK Architects about realising your High-Value Dwelling, starting with our
Clients Brief & Blueprint Service.

BDK Architects will guide you through the Process:

Consult BDK Architects: We assist you with defining your desires and objectives for your project, identifying the risks involved and imaginatively and expertly interpreting your ideas. Confirm BDK Architects appointment for your project.



Secure Statutory Approvals:  We will prepare the information for and seek approvals needed before your project can be built, including making application for Planning consent (covering the projects compliance with Planning Law & Policy) and Building Bye-Law consent (covering the projects compliance with technical, practical, health & safety and functional requirements). Then you are set to progress onto the final stage:



Prepare an Exciting Design: We will work with you developing a design that imaginatively realises your objectives, optimises your investment, is economic to build and run, and brings you years of comfort, delight, enjoyment and pleasure.



Undertake the Build: Realise your project with BDK managing construction phase including selecting suitable builders, obtaining competitive prices, entering into a water-tight contract, monitoring on-site progress / quality standards / safety, agreeing valuations / payments, arranging input of other design specialists, and overseeing construction co-ordination to successful completion. Occupy & enjoy!



Initial Consultation (Complimentary at no charge and no obligation to proceed):

We do not make any charge for an initial visit, or meeting, to discuss your project or building needs. During this initial consultation we will generally identify your requirements, suggest possible options, explain the process of developing the project and the approvals required, and give you some new ideas! If you then want to proceed with us further we would be delighted to arrange an appointment and together embark on a journey of discovery.

Explore your Virtual Environment:

Long before construction work starts our Virtual Building Technology can give you a truly three-dimensional appreciation of how the completed project will appear and feel. BDK Architects don’t just prepare two-dimensional plans, elevations and sections – we actually assemble a virtual building using our state-of-the-art CAD technology from which both a Virtual Building Model or more conventional two-dimensional drawings are produced. From this you will really discover the physical appearance of your building.


We can give you full 3D tours of the project and even give you a Virtual Building Explorer CD (VBE) for you to explore on your own computer and tour your project at leisure - in virtual reality ! This is a great design aid and also makes it far easier to read and appreciate the scheme than two-dimensional drawings.


Interior Architecture:

BDK Architects employs staff who have gained Interior design experience, in addition to our core Chartered Architects and Assistants, so we have the expertise and capability to successfully realise an attractive interior design solution as well as addressing the architectural aspects.
