Hertfordshire Architects Ltd (HAL) is a local architects' practise which values working with local people & businesses. We cover many areas throughout Hertfordshire including Hertford, Stevenage, Welwyn Garden City, Royston and St. Albans.
HAL have now been established for over 8 years with a large portion of work commissioned through recommendation.
At HAL we acknowledge the importance of developing a brief with the client and working with them on an interactive and personal level. No matter how small the project, we are motivated by the opportunity to enhance, improve and make a difference to the environment that you live or work in. We will offer a competitive fee combined with a professional and friendly service.
Full professional indemnity insurance is maintained and you have the reassurance that you are working with a chartered member of the RIBA.
We offer a full service from pre-application advice, full planning applications and building regulations drawings.
Your project could be a building change of use, domestic garage or loft conversion, home extension or an entire new build. We would be pleased to offer a free, no obligation initial consultation (within a 10 mile radius) to discuss your requirements. Please do browse our website and contact us to discuss your future project with Hertfordshire Architects. We look forward to hearing from you.
Professionally qualified architects are the best placed people to ensure your project runs smoothly and you get the results you want.
As well as producing drawings and production information for planning and building regulations approval, architects will provide all the information and services needed to guide you through the design and construction process, ensuring you are aware of your statutory obligations and provide guidance on building within proximity of boundaries.
The reassurance offered by a professional architectural company such as HAL should not be underestimated.
Current government guidance states that everyone should work from home, unless they cannot work from home.
Therefore face-to-face site visits for initial consultations have been temporarily suspended as these can be carried out remotely. Instead, fee proposals for most projects will be still be possible as follows:
- Photographs of the existing property and a brief description of the work/home improvements to be carried out should be emailed to us (with appropriate labelling).
- If there are any existing floor plans of the property, such as estate agent details or record plans from previous extensions, it would be helpful if these could be emailed over too.
- If there are any further queries, these can be dealt with over the phone or by email.
Site survey work can not be carried out remotely whilst working from home. Therefore, preventative measures to reduce risks to the lowest reasonably practicable level have been set up to allow site surveys to be carried out in other people's homes during COVID-19.
Further details will be provided/discussed with the client prior to arranging a site survey.
All office based work will continue as normal.
