About Us

His practical background, coupled with a desire to create buildings, places and spaces which people can enjoy, has helped him design and build a large range of schemes from houses to hospitals, tea rooms to temples. 


He has created numerous award winning buildings.


Robs training and varied experience ensures he designs buildings which are functional, aesthetically pleasing, and above all readily constructed.


Out of the office, when he can find the time away from his family, Rob enjoys to go sailing and can often be found at weekends drifting somewhere offshore!

Chris is a Chartered Architectural Technologist, who has a deep understanding of how buildings are put together and how the latest changes in technology and legislation affect the designs.


He has nearly 20 years worth  experience within the industry starting out as junior technician.


Having worked at all levels has enabled him to fully develop his skills and understanding of the whole process.

He is also a registered energy assessor and believes that the buildings we are constructing should be as sustainable and energy efficient as possible.


When Chris is not in the office he can be found either mountain biking, or family time permitting restoring his old VW camper. He is hoping to complete this before he is as old as it is!
