Where To Start? The R&B Builders Guide



Quite often people literally don’t know where to start, this is easier than you think. – Call Our Team

Sometimes on smaller projects you will not require any architects plans, planning or building control. I (Brett Phipps-MD) can advise you on all of these, this quite often can save you a lot of money and time.

If however you wish or need this service we have architects and structural engineers who we highly recommend.

“Nicola Richardson is a Chartered Architect based in Islip just north of Oxford offering a professional and bespoke service to her clients. Nicola set up the practice in 2011 and has more than 12 years experience working within the construction industry as a fully qualified architect. She gained experience whilst working for an award winning practice in Buckinghamshire as an Associate Architect. During that time she worked on a wide range of projects from small residential extensions to large commercial developments, schools and offices.

R&B Builders have worked alongside Nicola on a few projects most recently a large 2 story extension. R &B have chosen Nicola as a recommended Architect because she provides a clear package of drawings with a detailed schedule, once you have reached this stage we would be able to give a fixed price for your project, the benefit of having a detailed schedule it there is no confusion as to what is and is not included in the price, this will give you confidence there will be no unexpected costs during the build.”


John Martin is a Chartered Architect and is based in the same village as R&B Builders, what makes things very easy for us is the detail that he works to and the simplicity to his drawings. Once I have these it is a lot easier to work out a price and to build your new house extension or loft conversion. We have worked with John on a number of projects in and around Marcham and John also has a mountain of experience with planning and building control which enables us to give wise advice on your ideas.

“Adrienne Anderson Associates ltd is based in Abingdon Oxfordshire, Adrienne is our recommended structural engineer and would take up the job of producing a calculations package for the structural part of your build, most commonly she would take the architects plans and do the calculations and provide details about the sizes of steels and timbers to be used. Adrienne has worked with us on a variety of size projects. Sometimes it has been just a single steel beam for removing a wall and other times it has been a full house reconstruction with multiple aspects.”

After you have had the plans and calculation done and decided to employ R&B Builders we will arrange the building control officer, they will then liaise with us at given points through the project to check the build is meeting standards, on completion after their final inspection you will be issued a completion certificate.

If you have these serviced already in place or have been recommended someone already we are quite happy to work to any architects drawings and calculations.

Please contact myself and I can help take the stress away from your project.

Regards Brett.
