It’s been a busy summer here at 1 Kings Heath Wharf, so busy in fact, that I am booked up for the rest of the year. If you have a project in mind and you really can’t wait, go to the RIBA website and find another architect. If you are thinking of a spring or summer build for 2016, let me know and I will put your name on the list. I will come out to you closer to the time. Although you might be disappointed at the waiting time, it’s not fair on my existing customers to put their work to one side while we talk about your scheme. The shop runs on reference, so the service has to come first.
It’s not just me either, my approved inspector is starting to turn work away and my local builders are busy busy. In fact I held back some of my tenders from August to September: you (usually) only get one go and I wanted to avoid any “no thank you” prices. It wasn’t so long ago that we were all scratching around for work, now we don’t have enough people to push a wheelbarrow.
Update 22 October 2015 – three of my schemes now have good competitive prices, a big relief for my very patient clients. I also have a nice scheme in Kings Heath ready to go to tender and three contractors ready to bid. Good luck guys and don’t forget to read the spec!
