Added value architecture
As an employee-owned firm, all our staff have genuine understanding of our commercial clients’ opportunities and pressures. Rather than simply offering architectural drawings, we apply our detailed local knowledge to provide strategic advice on specific business objectives:
- Identifying sustainable approaches for retailers diversifying into new ventures
- Developing hotels and hospitality venues to attract new audiences
- Delivering rapidly for manufacturers urgently requiring more space
- Advising local landowners on maximising value for sale and development
- Collaborating with housing associations and developers to optimise site potential
We want your project to bring significant benefits to your business and support your sustainability goals. By thoroughly understanding your objectives we provide robust advice on the most appropriate balance of quality, time and cost for your plans.
Our priority is to develop trusted relationships to support our clients through each stage of their growth, so we carefully consider the short-term and long-term impacts of any approach. We are particularly sensitive to the logistical issues facing businesses transitioning from their old premises to a new build.
With extensive experience in the practicalities of financing, planning regulations and sustainability, we adopt an innovative mindset in our recommendations of design and materials.
Holistic whole-project approach
We have considerable experience with nurturing projects from inception, including finding sites and making connections between stakeholders such as landowners, developers and consultants. This has been valued by clients we’ve supported over decades as they become multi-site businesses, as well as by businesses from further afield which are newly expanding into the area.
Respected in the industry for our collaborative and respectful approach to all stakeholders, we are the architect of choice for many. Our understanding of project cashflow helps us lead productive conversations with partners to propose practical delivery models for our mutual clients.
We work flexibly to accommodate different procurement routes including those where we manage the tendering for contractors, or design and build procurement used for larger developments.
