We've worked in the architecture and building construction industry since 1987 and so have gained a vast experience of the industry as a whole.
We work in the residential, care sector, commercial and industrial sectors designing new-build and conversions schemes, and have excellent working relationships with the many local planning and building regulations teams.
We have over the years forged close relationships with other key consultants working in the construction industry. When required these consultants can provide specialist advice to clients in areas such as Town Planning, Structural Engineering, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Surveying and Architectural Illustration.
We have experience of listed buildings and development within conservation areas.
We also have experience in building surveying and general building consultancy including measured surveys and property condition surveys.
