We embrace technology and are constantly striving to be at the forefront of new developments.

Using Building Information Modelling (BIM) software to generate a 3D model of your property, means we can assess how it will look and function from the outset. This technology enables us to carefully analyse structure and form, ensuring potential mistakes are remedied before arriving on site. We can even link the model to a virtual reality headset to allow you to walk around your building virtually prior to build.

Planning is one of the most important stages of a project, and we’re well-versed in the rules and regulations involved in this vital process.

We can help steer the whole planning permission procedure (including retrospective applications and appeals), as well as advising on building control and whatever else it takes to get your project out of the ground. As well as designing your property, we can help to guide you through any applications, approvals and negotiations with statutory bodies which might be required as the design develops.

06Interior Design

At Ercle we work holistically to ensure that the whole space works for you, interiors included.

We believe that a property’s interior design goes hand-in-hand with the architecture itself and the two elements hold equal importance. Space planning, furniture and joinery designs, lighting design and interior finishings are all crucial aspects when creating buildings with character both inside and out. We offer a complete interior design service to ensure that the vision is able to continue through into the living spaces of your abode.

We start with a deep understanding of a building’s heritage and interpret the historical context when redesigning listed buildings.

We work sympathetically with the building to bring about a space which looks forwards whilst not forgetting its past. We love the challenge of incorporating modern insertions into a historical setting to show the clear definition between old and new.

Visualise your project

A integral part of architecture is understanding the spaces we inhabit and by using computer generated models alongside virtual reality we can envision these spaces before they are even built. We can then in real time, alter the built form, testing choices and accurately seeing the results of these design changes
