Our Experience

We have worked extensively within the built environment on a wide variety of projects over many years covering architecture, building surveying, structural engineering, and construction management, offering a complete and integrated package.

We are problem solvers, highly skilled and creative professionals who will ensure our buildings are sustainable, practical, and stable, by utilising our combined architectural design, structural engineering, and building surveying knowledge.

We are both professional members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS),  professionals qualified to the highest standard. Building Surveyors work within the construction industry dealing with design, building survey reports, maintenance, repair, refurbishment, and contract management.

We have comprehensive experience of managing projects from inception to completion, providing Professional Consultants Certificates for new builds requiring a mortgage and certification. We can also act as Contract Administrators, to carry out this vital role on your behalf.

At this time of a Climate Change Emergency, a sustainable design approach is paramount. We are passionate about the environment by designing and influencing others of the urgency to reduce our carbon emissions and work towards a more sustainable and low carbon world. Sustainable solutions play a role in all our design projects. We are currently working towards registering with The Society of the Environment (SoC) to further indicate our credentials in this field.
