Commercial ArchitectureView our services
‘We require from buildings two kinds of goodness: first, the doing their practical duty well: then that they be graceful and pleasing in doing it.’ John Ruskin
What we do
The Commercial Architectural Service involves taking a client's brief then designing and managing the process of the delivery of a building.
It can be a new building, housing project, alterations, or conservation of an existing building.
The Service can be divided into specialist areas from feasibility studies, planning permission submissions, building warrant submissions, construction drawing packages, tender documentation and contract administration. Partial services may be appropriate if a project is not proceeding from start to finish as a whole.
We also offer a specialist architectural service where we act as Executive Architects. These tend to be on large scale projects working for concept architects, project managers and clients from outside Scotland, who are unable to deal with local planning or building control officers, or be on site to see a project through the build stage. We can manage the project,using our expertise to ensure the concept architect's design is realised with exacting precision. Click here for more detail about Executive Architecture.
We understand the importance of our relationship with you the client. The architectural process thrives on placing a high value on personal service. Clear roles, responsibilities and points of contact are set up. All concerns are taken seriously, whether about design, a cost matter or any other point.
