Before starting extensive renovation work, an extension, or a new chalet building project you will need to turn to a design professional - someone with the right credentials and experience to help you create a total environment, interior and exterior, that satisfies your specific needs. Extensive forethought about a project before the hammers swing ensures you get the building of your dreams, no compromises.

During his time in the Alps Andy has had many planning applications approved in Samoëns, Morillon, Verchaix, Taninges, Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval, La Riviere Enverse, and La Clusaz. 

Andy has joined British RIBA architect Tom Searby to create an architectural practice here in France. Both Andy and Tom have extensive experience of the French system and whether you need a new planning application (permise de construire or declaration de prealable) or an amendment or addition to existing permission, they can help.
