Figura creates high quality living environments at a reasonable cost.
We have had 40 years experience doing this as Planners, Designers, Developers and Contractors.
We have worked speculatively for ourselves, as Design Builders for the Self Builder and as Consultants for Developers worldwide. We offer a personal service, which can be tailored to your needs, whether you are a large developer or an individual homeowner. Our principal studied Architecture at Cambridge UK, before teaching Architecture at Massachusetts Institute of Technology USA. At MIT he also ran a US government research project into sustainable development within a protected watershed near New York City.
The practical and financial experience we have gained as developers and contractors gives us the edge when planning and designing to a budget.
Our Services for the Homeowner
For the Homeowner Figura can help you analyze the way to make the most of your home and then advise on alterations or extensions designed to achieve this. We can provide a planning and design service and can construct your extension. In many cases, we have prefabricated the extension in our workshop, so that the impact of construction on your lifestyle is minimized.
Our Services for the Self-builder
Figura can help you evaluate the potential of a site for your new home. We can then provide a complete planning and design service and we can construct your new house. This could be just a weathertight shell for you to finish yourself, or it can be a complete turnkey service. We can provide project management and we can monitor the construction process, providing detailed progress reports as work proceeds. Our complete service can include interior and landscape design.
Our Services For the Developer
Figura can provide feasibility studies, to evaluate the potential of a project before it is undertaken. We use our team of Cambridge Professionals to underpin these studies, which can be used for fund raising. We have worked on large projects in many countries.
We can undertake all Planning and Design work, through to working drawings and specifications if required. This will include all negotiations with Local Authorities.
