Your Trusted Design Partner

With over 30 years’ combined personal experience in the commercial and community sector, the practice has been able to deliver a wide range of projects. These range from large scale operations in the vehicle retail industry to renovations of Grade II listed properties, retail refurbishments, church buildings and upgrading local theatre.

Understanding Your Requirements

A commercial property venture is driven by organisational needs. That’s why our first step is always to understand those needs and work out the implications for your architectural requirements. We’ll discuss everything from corporate identity to IT requirements, land constraints to budget in order to create an initial brief.

Meeting User Needs

During this discovery phase, our job is to ask questions and offer you a professional perspective on aspects such as space efficiency, cost effectiveness and how to meet your business model. Together we’ll look at the needs of your end users – your customers, employees or visitors – so we can create a space that works for them both now and later on it life, future-proofing your investment.

Site Specific Solutions

We don’t believe that mass market development is fit for purpose or sustainable. That’s why in all commercial development projects – whether residential, retail, office or warehouse – we will always offer a site specific solution. You might need the support of an Architect for the duration of your project or to fulfill a specific task.

Next Steps

Having thoroughly explored the brief and discussed ideas we will provide a written quotation for your consideration. The fee proposal will be set out with approximately seven stages, each of which counts as a separate commission. Once we’ve received your signed Client Acceptance form through, we can get started with either a measured building survey or by engaging a topographical surveyor on your behalf. From there, the design process will begin and the journey to developing your business or enhancing your community building is underway.

Our full range of services

From concepts and visualisation to urban design, master planning to heritage statements, contract administration and buildings regulations. We are available to support you with a range of technical services. These can be included within a larger project remit or provided on an individual basis to suit your needs.
