what we do


At r+m we are passionate about working with our clients to realise their vision. Our design response evolves from a thorough understanding of the site.

The design process from the initial concept through to detailed design and project management ensures our clients aspirations and vision are achieved.

We offer a fully integrated design service at a variety of scales to suit every budget.

Typically this includes:

  • site inventory and analysis

    Establishing our clients brief and gaining an understanding of the site.

  • preliminary concept design

    Initial development of ideas and opportunities for the site through a series of sketches and plans.

  • design development

    Further development of initial ideas into a finalised design. This stage may also include design reports and a project costing.

  • detailed design and contract documentation

    Preparation of detailed drawings and specifications to enable the finalised design to be priced and built. These are often required by Local Authorities when consents are required.

  • building consent and tendering

    This stage involves us calling for, obtaining and reporting on tenders. Any necessary building consents are obtained during this stage.

  • contract administration during construction

    This includes the administration and observation of the construction of your project. This may include site visits, communications with contractors, issuing of instructions and payment certificates.
