Our practice has four fully qualified Architects led by Nicholas Warns who are all experienced in historic building repairs. They are supported by a strong administration team and junior technical support. We can also provide an in-house CDM Principal Designer service, if required.
Our clients are at the heart of the services we provide – (demonstrated by the high number of repeat clients we have).
You are offered a free of charge initial consultation (which is normally an hour at our city centre office) where we will discuss your requirements, to ensure that we fully understand these, and also set out the services that we can provide.
You will then receive a detailed proposal outlining the agreed services and associated fees. Once accepted a detailed programme with dates for delivery will be issued (and an architect appointed who will communicate with you throughout the project and ensure that any agreed changes are accommodated.)
We provide for our clients the best combination of modern business systems, technical services and digital resources – featuring strong project and budget management; precise architectural surveys and digital modelling; historical and archaeological research.
Our team have excellent specialist knowledge of traditional materials -leadwork, stone and flint, stained glass and metalwork, pantiles and brick, lime mortar and decorative plaster, carved timber beams and thatch roofing.
We deliver high quality results through collaboration with professional experts and skilled artisans, historians and archaeologists and use of the best traditional materials and innovative techniques. We also have excellent Computer Aided Design systems and digital media facilities to support our work.
