The idea of creating your own one-off just for you planned and constructed house is becoming more and more popular in the UK.

Coupled with the political wish to provide more land for self-builders, the next years will see many changes in the traditionally developer led housing culture. The German housing market is in this sense completely different, it is “normal” for a Client to acquire his/her piece of building land and then choose their own Architect and construction companies to complete their dream of their own home. Naturally this has been led by differing Planning Laws linked with differing roles of the Architect within the whole construction phase.

Over recent years more and more German construction companies have entered in to the UK’s construction industry. Most of them have a long tradition within the German “kit-home” market and they offer differing “products” which may appear some what confusing at times. This is exactly where we can help you. Having worked within this area together with many of the main players in the market we can offer you:

  • Initial discussions about whether this is the right way for you.
  • Advise on whether a plot would be suitable for what you are trying to achieve.
  • Independent advise of which kit-home company may be right for you.
  • Provide initial sketch proposals which can then be used for further discussions with a kit-home manufacturer.
  • Introduce you to the various kit-home providers and advise you on which one would be correct for your scheme.
  • Act as Agent for you throughout the whole construction process.
  • Provide you with Architectural services such as Planning Applications or Building Regulation Approval.
  • During the construction phase we can work together with you acting within a Controller function.
  • Advise you on the various phases of construction and how this works efficiently using the “German way”.
  • Help organise the required Utility connections at the right time.
  • Organise any required permissions (such as road closures) for your kit-home to be delivered and / or erected on site.
