  1. Hi everyone, I am an Architect, and would love to answer any questions you have on planning, design, construction etc etc. I am starting a blog called AskAnArchitect, and will feature the answers on the blog too. Kind Regards, Oli
  2. Hi Everyone, My name is Waj, I am an Architect and I have been working with property developers for several years now, on both domestic and residential block scale projects. I have been researching into property development for the last couple of years now, the PropertyHub website, podcasts and the book Property Investment for Beginners by Rob Dix has been most useful in my research. I intend to make my first investment towards the end of 2021, my interest lies in buying and flipping properties as my experience is in adding value to existing buildings. If anyone wishes to know
  3. Dear Property Hub community, My name is Luis, I'm a Spanish Construction Engineer that has lived half of his life already here in the UK. I'm passionate about property investment, for now I've done mainly buy to lets and a couple flips. I'm MCIOB, so charted construction manager and I've got my own small design and build company in partnership with an architect and a Surveyor. I'm also working my way into becoming a residential valuer through RICS. almost there, but not just yet! I would be very happy to help anyone interested in investing in property so I can learn a
  4. Hi everyone, I've been a member for a while and not really used it to its full potential, so wanted to do an introduction. Our mission is to change lives by bringing wellness into homes through property development and design.

She has over 10yrs experience from new builds, conversion, commercial, etc. From London to Midlands. Our property business is called Wellspace Properties, and looking at doing development focused again on bring wellbeing
  5. Hi All, I'm just starting out near Cambridge and am looking to build my team to help me along the way. I'm looking to do some conversions, so will be needing: 1. Planning consultants 2. An architect 3. An innovative mortgage broker 4. A tax advisor / accountant with good property knowledge. We've really struggled to find reliable people when doing our main house, so Any recommendations or notes of those probably best avoided would be very gratefully received! Thanks All, appreciated!
  6. Hi Property Hub, I'm an Architect with three properties in London. I'm new to the forums, although, I have been a podcast listener for years. I would like to offer my professional skills to unlock potential development sites across the UK. I have worked for small and large London architectural practices creating one to hundreds of homes at a time and would like to help other forum members with any of their projects. I'm also looking for a little advice/mentoring on growing my own portfolio. Happy to talk. Sav.
  7. Hi All I am looking for recommendations for an architect in the Bristol area. I have a 3-bed end of terrace with large enough land for another, same size, property with parking. I'm looking for someone to produce plans and give me some direction/advice on what to build (e.g. flats/house etc). Any help would be very much appreciated. Paddy
  8. Hi I'm and architect who used to work for a niche eco-housebuilder. I have been advising developers on sites for so long that I now find I know more than they do! I started by buying an office for my practice through my SIPP (which can also borrow), then got planning permission for flats on unused garden ground. Now building 4 flats, sold one before it started, keeping one myself as a btl, 2 yet to sell. This isn't the easiest route but it's a great way to use your pension savings to get into property. The profit is being used to seek more sites and high yield opportun
  9. Hello, I am an interior architect with a passion for essentialist design and Tao philosophy. I am just at the beginning of this journey - becoming a property investor. Being interior architect for the past eight years with a project around the world I gained experience which I found relevant to start investing myself. Earlier this year I spotted Rob's book, and since then I am considering to start this journey. That's from me. Wish you all one incredible, exciting journey in property investing. George
  10. Hi guys, I'm in the process of purchasing a disused doctors surgery in Bromley which we're hoping to convert into a single residential dwelling. Does anyone have any experience with RIBA endorsed architects or structural surveyors in Bromley or near that they could recommend? Thanks in advance! Ricky
  11. Hi everyone, I own (along with 2 co-owners) a site in Catford (South East London) which is currently commercial. We want to get planning permission to make the site residential, increasing its value, and then sell to a developer. So we'd like to engage a company to draw up plans and deal with the planning process. Having never dealt with a project like this I'd be grateful for any advice or comments - should we engage an architect, or a chartered town planner? What would the difference be in practice and are there any other options? Roughly how much should we expect to pay?
  12. Advice needed - Are there any savings in developing multiple identical units? I am looking at adding an additional storey to a row of townhouses. I have received a quote of 10% of the build cost from an architect. Is it reasonable to charge the same price for multiple units even though the design will still be the same for each unit or should I be getting a discount? Thanks
  13. The two types of semi-detached house are either linked by garages, or living room/bedroom. What is the logic of the two designs? Why would architects/builders choose one over the other? Thanks
  14. Hi all, Are there any Architects on here that also do their own property-flips / developments? Or do anyone have a contact of any architects that specialise in smaller Refurbishment / Loft Conversion / Extension projects that they can recommend in the London area? Thank You
  15. Hi all, I'm an architect, working in London. Hopefully I can therefore contribute my thoughts on design and planning issues! I'm also a somewhat of a data geek, and am working on ways to analyse the London/UKproperty market with GIS. I'm new to property investing, but I am hoping that 2016 can be my year! Thanks! Ben
  16. Hi folks Just dropping-by to say "hi" and introduce myself, I've come here via the excellent podcast (after browsing Itunes for Property Development Podcasts) I trained as an architect and have been working in the industry now for 5-6 years or so... Lots of experience with planning approvals, project development, pricing, technical specifications etc... and plenty of on-site experience too, but never for myself (typical eh?) I've completed projects for friends in the past and remain on good terms with all my former clients, and have managed to realise incredible wealth and value f
