Community Architectural Services

Our Community projects include Village and Community halls, Youth Centres, Schools, Healthcare centres, Doctors and Dentists surgeries, Nurseries and Child care facilities.

We recognise community and social projects are often limited by a lack of funding, we can provide assistance and advice with grant funding as well as some limited services on a ‘no grant no fee basis’ to help get your project started.

A ‘value engineering’ approach is often needed to balance the requirements of these projects against available funds, using a combination of our experience and skills and our contacts with builders and other consultants we strive to find solutions which give our clients ‘best value’ in the long term whilst also providing sustainable solutions.

Please get in touch for a ‘free no obligation meeting’ to discuss your requirements. We can offer you the following services:

  • A comprehensive Design Consultancy on all building related matters
  • Assistance with grant applications
  • Site and building surveys
  • Feasibility studies
  • 3D modelling and visualisation
  • Expertise in Listed buildings and conservation areas
  • Planning consultancy
