Architectural design


You could say architecture is in our DNA – our senior architectural designer has studied blueprints since his carpenter father used to bring them home when he was a lad. Certainly our passion for property design and our understanding of quality building are inherent in all that we do.

Across domestic extensions, heritage properties – including Listed and conservation projects – and as lead designers for multiple housing developments, our sympathetic yet practical approach to design ensures our clients’ projects remain on schedule, within budget and are completed to a high standard. We work continuously in the public and private sectors and our architectural experience includes a specialism in educational buildings.

Our knowledge of Planning and Building Regulations legislation ensures our approach is realistic, achievable and compliant, without compromising the tenets of good design and a high quality finish.

On every project, our residential and commercial property sales team is able to advise on the financial implications of development, whether your vision is to extend, convert or sell-on. This enables us to support our clients by evaluating whether a project is likely to yield a return on investment, assessing a site’s suitability and ensuring contractual requirements are respected and adhered to.
