About WS-Design>Who we are and what we do

We understand the emotional and financial investment behind every project.
During our initial consultation, we take time to listen carefully to what our client needs
from their project and explore their ‘wish-list’ in depth.

We encourage our Client’s input and involvement throughout each stage of the design development
process and feel this is a good way to make sure we design a scheme that you are going to love.

Our aim is to really understand our client’s requirements so that we can create design solutions
that are exciting and meet their expectations. We also love maximising any potential hidden within
a property and by providing a quality design and planning service (within your timescale and project budget),
we can help achieve this.

Our personal and professional approach ensures that our client’s needs are met, the Local Authority
standards are satisfied and respect is maintained for the built environment.
