Aiming to achieve the client expectation is our sole focus at Quantum Chimney Services and our pre-design advice service is perfect for enabling options to be proposed, identifying potential limitations or restrictions that can impact the desired outcome and finding solutions that can work within the constraints of a property or budget.
Typically, our pre-design advice service will be a meeting with all relevant persons, from clients, to architects to listed building officers, along with access to any associated plans or drawings so we get a full understanding of what is desired to be achieved and any initial limitations. Whether your looking to install a wood burning stove or construct a new open fire we are able to assist. If the project is refurbishment and renovation, we ask this meeting take place on site. We then offer an initial overview of the proposals and general points for considerations.
For some clients, this is enough to provide clear direction and feasibility and our involvement may end at this point. For the large majority of clients, we then become further involved in ongoing design, assessment and specification, setting out all options and the potential implications of each, so that a sound decision on what is best for the property and its future occupants.
For refurbishment / renovation projects, this initial pre-design service leads to flue condition inspections (or ‘CCTV survey‘ as it is commonly referred to) and a full report being provided, where a full assessment of the existing fire openings, flue shafts and chimneys has been undertaken and any potential issues not previously considered have been identified.
Whether your project is a small single storey extension on a domestic terraced property, a large renovation of a period property or a new large scale development, Quantum Chimney Services can assist.
