DESIGN

TEAM

Design Team was founded in 2014 to meet the growing demand for Fixed Fee Architectural Design services in the UK. We passionately believe in the importance of good Design – but recognise this process needs to be kept straightforward and affordable.

Our solution to this need is our unique range of Fixed Fee Design Packages. Each package contains everything you require to Tender your scheme to your chosen contractors. The full bundle includes everything from the initial Design options, planning drawings, build regulation pack and the full structural engineering – all in one handy box, and of course with a fully Fixed Fee so you are able to budget from the outset. 

With an experienced in-house team of Architectural Designers, we have over 1,000 successful planning consents under our belt. We offer a Free Design Consultation call to get the process started – and in most cases we endeavour to get the Measured Survey booked at your property within 3 days of your instruction. Wherever you live in the UK, give us a call and we’ll get the exciting process of extending your home underway!

Dan Davidson
Design Director
Dan Davidson
After university Dan began his career as a marketing graduate at Sainsbury's before moving to Barclays for a period of 10 years, this culminated in his role as Corporate Director in Business Services. He designed and built his first extension in 1999 for his family home in Dulwich. At this stage, it was very much an interest and a hobby and it wasn’t until he built his second extension five years later that he recognised there was scope for a company that specialised in home extensions. His love of property and beautiful design lead him to set up Design Team, a design studio that focuses on elegant, architectural inspiring design that is affordable and straightforward. He is a trustee to the Board of Groundwork London, which supports local economies to promote sustainability and provide young people with support and employment opportunities
