GILNA ARCHITECTURE offers a full range of services for our clients and can conceive and deliver projects through to completion. In each project I seek to develop the scheme in tandem with the clients through constant refinement and variations to ensure the best solution is reached and all options have been explored. This is achieved through sketches, 3D models and ongoing discussion with the client, consultants and builders.

I work on projects of all scales- each project brings its own challenges and opportunity to deliver a unique solution for you the client.


This would normally be split into 4 stages. Each stage is billed separately. You may decide to hire Gilna Architecture on all stages or a limited service.

The professional fees charged by an Architect are normally calculated as a percentage of the construction costs (standard services). An initial fee estimate is prepared based on the Client’s budget / project complexity or outline costs/sketches prepared by the Architect.

A fixed fee for the duration of the project can also be agreed between the Client and Architect. Payment of the architects fees are due upon approval of the various stages by the Client. Standard domestic work has four stages as outlined above.
