We are a long-established architectural practice with beginnings in Southampton in 1922, and since 1952 in Coventry. We have a broad spectrum of experience covering all sectors but with a particularly strong portfolio in retail, commercial, education and leisure schemes.
Our varied projects range from small refurbishments up to large re-development schemes and have been for both private and public sector clients, working under both traditional and Design & Build forms of procurement.
The Practice’s main objective is to provide our Client with a thorough, professional service: listening to and understanding their needs, applying initiative and imagination to establish and develop the project brief and objectives, giving comprehensive, clear advice throughout the duration of the project.
Our record of reselection by established Clients illustrates how our commitment and professionalism is translated into performance - assisting our Clients achieve their design aspirations as well as their programme and budget requirements.
A key principle of the practice is our ‘hands on’ approach in which the direction and control of the architectural service offered on each project is maintained by a partner from inception to completion. We believe our proactive, systematic, meticulous style of management makes a significant contribution to the successful completion of the projects we undertake. Our clients benefit from the comprehensive design information we produce, as well as our rigorous contract administration.
We strongly believe that being open to finding new ways of working and following a collaborative approach to construction projects is important in delivering a high-quality build.
