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 experience with producing 3-dimensional building modelling for every project. BDK Architects design using state-of-the-art CAD technology. At the design stage, we will provide you with a Virtual Building Model for exploration on your own computer and also life like, virtual reality three dimensional images. The ability to comprehend the end result at such 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 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. This resulted in an inherited asset worth £650K, with an increase to £1.25M once we had secured planning consent. Our client went on to sell the site for a substantially enhanced property value and is an example of where BDK Architects realised a significant 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.
