Construction Advice and Support
We provide Architecture services and undertake projects of all sizes, from extensions to loft conversions and basements to new builds. Offering the full service to achieve planning consent with the Local Authority and then developing the drawings ready for construction. We pride ourselves on offering sound advice through the planning process and consideration to the client’s budget during the design stages.
Having one point of contact from the initial concept to completion on site is massively beneficial as working with different companies can be confusing and hard to control.
We can also produce CGI’s and 3D models of the scheme to further assist with the clarity of the space and design. Visuals are also very helpful in improving the chances of success for challenging planning applications, such as ones within the Greenbelt or Conservation areas.

CONSTRUCTION COST MANAGEMENT
“OUR SCHEDULE OF WORK SERVICES CONTROL THE CONSTRUCTION COST BEFORE THE PROJECT STARTS AND ENABLES THE CLIENT TO COMPARE PRICING EASILY.”
A common issue with comparing quotes from various builders without a detailed Schedule of Work spreadsheet is that each builder will be pricing the job in their own pricing format. This means the client has many different quotes with no way of comparing like for like. This often leads to different assumptions, quantities and ultimately variations during the build. Our Schedule of Work pricing documents break down all elements of the build. The builders price each line item so comparing tenders is extremely easy and ensures nothing is missed.
The second advantage to the Schedule of Works is that we can check the costs and work with the builders to reduce certain prices or recommend different products/specification. This helps to reduce the overall build sum.
Once costs are agreed the Schedule of Works is then used as a reference document throughout the build when requests are made for payment by the builder. Work stages can be checked against progress and payments made to represent what has been done to avoid the client from over paying.
“We used the extremely detailed specification provided to go out to tender for the building project. This gave us control over the budget and enabled us to compare quotes easily.”
RESIDENTIAL BUILDING PROJECT MANAGEMENT & BUILDING CONSULTANCY
“THE ADVANTAGES OF APPOINTING A BUILDING PROJECT MANAGER & BUILDING CONSULTANT IS INDEPENDENT SUPPORT AND ADVICE BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THE BUILD.”
Minniedale Projects specialise in residential building project management and building consultancy, helping clients prepare their projects for construction and managing through to completion. We provide independent advice and support sitting between the client and builder. We operate in Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire consulting on extensions, loft conversions, basement extensions, and new build/self build projects. Our services protect client interests while working fairly with the builder and suppliers.
The pre-construction stages of any build are vital to it running efficiently, on time and on budget. If you are about to undertake a build project and need expertise on how to get it started, the costs, appointment of the right builder and management during the build, a building project manager and building consultant is the best way forward.
A majority of our clients appoint us as they are unsure on the stages to get their scheme built, what the costs are and who/what is needed in the process. They also don’t have time to invest in running the project and to make sure their best interests are shared by the builder. Minniedale Projects offer peace of mind with our Cost Control, Contract Administration & Project Management services during the build with a focus on quality and attention to detail.
