Listen, understand and deliver
We walk a mile in a client's shoes and speak their language. Good results comes from excellent working relationship. You will be able share a wealth of experience. We believe in a collaborative approach with contractors. We also consider that design and technical ability, as well as contract administration skills, are paramount to the one stop service.
From our core activities we bring experience
Our commercial work ranges from office design to factories. We are also veterinary architects. Our residential work is in the area of bespoke developments. Community halls, sports facilities, colleges, schools and nursing homes also belong to our portfolio. If the project you have in mind is not in the list, just contact us.
We create visionary projects built and designed around you and your needs
Architects are trained in analysis and spatial problem solving. A good design is process driven and should exceed the sum of its parts. We have become very adept at finding innovative solutions and conduct "lesson learned" with clients, so that future projects benefit from experience.
The office bristles with new technologies
The ethos of the practice is to make sure that the clients understand the design i.e. no misunderstandings. To this aim, we use CGI visualisation and virtual "walk throughs" Building Information Management (BIM) softwares to design buildings. For those in the public sector we have considerable experience in delivering BIM lead educations projects.
Knowledge is power and as backyard Wiltshire architects we like knowledge. As commercial architects, we understand that information is key to decision making and if we cannot help you, then we may know of people who can. This principle of collaborative working is core to our approach. As a part of collaborative working we have worked with contractors at the design stage to value engineer projects.
Local inside edge
We are Swindon architects serving the community and we have a productive working relationship with the local authorities, contractors and developers alike. However most of our work extends along the M4 corridor reaching up into the Cotswolds and down to Hampshire and Berkshire. For example as Reading architects we have undertaken residential work and in Hampshire we have built community halls.
