Project Consultancy Services

VPR offers flexible consultancy for those wishing to run their own restoration or conversion project. We are happy to accompany you giving assistance were and when it is needed and leaving you to get on with what you can. It may be that all you need is a two hour meeting to run through plans, identify problems and get advice on specific issues at the start of the job. Or maybe you want us to provide specific services. These could include drafting:

  • Project design and project feasibility documents
  • Architectural plans
  • Building Schedule
  • Detailed scope of works (literally a list of everything to be included and budgeted for)
  • Schedules
  • Tender documents and personal policy (how are contractors to be employed)
  • Tender documents and drawings for bespoke items
  • Budget projections (how much is it going to cost and when will you need the money)

We can also help you with:

  • Material procurement
  • Planning applications
  • Liaison with building control
  • Liaison with utility service providers
  • Site visits
  • Quality control and contract management
  • Health and safety assessment and implementation
  • Dispute mediation
Project consultancy

We are in the process of buying a student let to convert back into a family home. The work required is quite substantial and includes the removal of internal and external walls and installing a dormer. Justin provided invaluable ideas and insight into how to approach the project and quickly helped us understand what can and can't be done. We now have a clear picture of what we want to achieve.

Case Study: Subdivision

Cumberland Road, Headlingley, Leeds

Flagged on the internet as an imposing stone house in Headingley requiring full renovation, Cumberland Road was a prime example of a problem property.

The first floor was a separate leasehold dwelling and the sale lot consisted of a sprawling basement and ground floor that had been shoddily divided into a warren of student rooms.
