HANZO - DREAM DEFINE DESIGN / gb  / en  / Practice / Guarantees

As a RIBA Chartered Architecture Company, we follow a strict code of practice.

Our Architects are ARB registered, guaranteeing their high level of education as well as experience.

We are BIDD registered interior designers. To achieve this, we provide many client references as well as have projects examined by BIID assessors.

We hold £10 million in Employers’ and £5 million in Public Liability, plus £2 million in Professional Indemnity insurance. The result is total peace of mind at both ends of the spectrum.

At the end of Project, you will receive :

Six months defects warranty.


Ten years Work Warranty as well as the deposit Protection backed by the UK leading insurance company

or Ten years LABC warranty for the new build property.

Also, we can provide various up to


25 years warranties


for roofs, windows and other parts of our work. These guarantees will be provided by the manufacturers or suppliers of products installed on-site by our trained team

Building a property or reconstructing existing housing is probably the most significant investment you will ever make. If anything goes wrong, it can also become the most expensive. We reduce your risk by enforcing guarantees in case the unplanned occurs.

Your property will be in the safe hands when you choose us.

Warranties differ from insurance by concentrating on the quality of work and covering the cost of complete or partial rebuilding.


Upon client request, HANZO.Design will provide an insurance-backed warranty that includes the first 10 years of the life of a new house or 10 years structural warranty for refurbishment projects.
As per standard practice, new homes are exposed to specific risks, which usually appear in the first two years after completion. This may include walls cracking, penetrating damp, drain function, etc. Also, it is a standard requirement if any sort of finance is involved. Our warranty (known as ‘latent defects insurance’) covers these risks for your home to give you ultimate peace of mind.


Alternatively, HANZO.Design can provide clients with an architect’s certificate instead of a warranty. This document is a signed statement confirming that the house has been supervised during the build period and constructed under accepted building practices. An architect’s certificate has legal validity for six years.
