WHO WE ARE
MCA will saves you time, money, and cuts out the stress of property development.
MC Architectural Design, located in Hampshire, offers a comprehensive service of in-house Architectural and Building Construction Services, Although different from what many homeowners are used to, our unique design & build method enables us to do so much more for you than the traditional approach of separating the client, the architect and the builder.
The more we know about your development the stronger our offering becomes to you, and the most efficient way of doing it. Beginning with your wish list and budget goals, our design & production teams work together to move your project from concept through construction in a predictable, schedule-driven manner. Our systems and services make everything streamlined without the hassle.
Our team of professionals will work together to ensure that your deadline is met, and if there is an issue along the way we can get it sorted in-house before it becomes a problem. Why spend time coordinating multiple services when you can enjoy an efficient streamlined service from MCA?
We also offer a pick and mix approach where you can choose the services you need, from planning application, technical drawing package, quantity surveying, or solely the building works, all tailored to save you stress, time and money when undertaking your project. This approach means you choose only the services you need.
We would love to have a chat with you and let you know a little bit more about how we can make a big difference to your project. There’s nothing to lose but a whole lot to gain by using MCA!
The journey always starts with you. It’s your project, your home.
So, before we can start any design work, we make sure we know what you want to achieve. You become a fundamental part of the design process so a initial phone chat with you or an email just to understand who you are and how we can realise your vision and help you achieve your final goal.

Planning - Design - Develop
"The journey always starts with you. It’s your project, your home"
Before we can start any design work, we make sure we know what you want to achieve. You become a fundamental part of the design process, so an initial phone chat with you or an email is needed to understand who you are, and how we can realise your vision and help you achieve your final goal.
Our Design & Build Service
We offer the following tailored packages to suit your needs and requirements as we appreciate you may already have the architectural plans drawn up and may only require our building services.
This is our Planning Package. This service provides you with a dedicated Architectural Designer who will meet with you at your home to discuss your requirements & objectives.
During this meeting we help you understand the appropriate application required to support your planning application. We make no charge for this initial meeting, therefore use this time to your advantage, have your questions prepared and any ideas you have at hand.
If you decide to appoint us, we will come back to carry out a measured survey relevant to the application and from this we will create “existing” plans. Based upon our concept discussions, we will prepare your draft scheme, and once agreed, we will prepare the proposed plans.
We will submit the plans on your behalf, and will monitor the progress of the application sparing you the nitty gritty headaches that come with this 8 weeklong process. All you’ll have to do is pay the initial application fee! Should the Planning Officer require reasonable amendments, we will in most instances prepare amended plans without additional charge.
This is our Building Regulations package. This service is for you if you are experienced & skilled in running & administering a building project. It may also be for you if the works are minor, for example, replacing a window with patio doors or a simple garage conversion, or if you have a builder in place ready to do the works.
Building Regulations are a set of standards for design and construction that apply to alterations of existing buildings and most new builds. The standards are very detailed, and include consideration of materials and workmanship requirements, structural matters, fire safety, sound insulation, energy conservation and access to and the use of buildings. This extra detail can make it easier to price a job more accurately, so accurate estimates can be obtained from a good set of Building Regulation plans.
Because of the level of technical detail required, and the number of professionals involved, it’s best to wait until you’ve received planning approval before starting these.
This is our One-Stop Shop Package. This package is our Planning, Building Regulations, and Construction services all rolled in one. This service is for you if you don’t want the ‘Hassle’ of dealing with a builder or you would simply like to reduce your risk during the construction phase of your building project, perhaps with work and family, you simply don’t have the time to deal with everything.
This option is our most requested as more and more of our clients do not have the capacity and time, and would rather spend this time with their families. Our current property developers use this service to their advantage, not only to receive a fixed price (enabling to firm up their project costing), but also to save time (because they believe their time is a valuable currency).
