Architectural Services

We can provide a one stop service, taking you through the design process into the production information stage and on site. Drawing upon our experience of tried and tested solutions based upon previous successful projects, as architects our aim is to guide you through these stages with the least possible stress.

We provide a wide range of services which cover most client's needs. Our key strengths are not building type driven but process driven. Good architects are analytical. The three most important services we provide are listening, understanding and providing solutions. We work with a wide range of consultants which enable us to leverage their skills and bind them into a well-rounded design team.

Our approach is collaborative, we work with many organisations contractors and alike to produce client-facing solutions.

We are SME and it is a major reason for our repeat business. We have greater flexibility in approach and determination than our larger rivals. This combined with lower overheads allows us to plough back a greater proportion of our fees in to the design.

Please note clients who now commission construction works small or large will now have to appoint or take on the role of Principle Designer under health and safety regulations. OC Architects can also be appointed as principle designer.

  • Refurbisment - Architectural Services

    Refurbishment

    Refurbishment and changing the use of a building done correctly can transform a building, its financial fortune and the live of its users. It is also on balance a cost effective solution and where green credentials are important it scores well. However refurbishment is tricky and experience count. Because of the work we have done and our reputation a high proportion is repeat business refurbishment work. One of the benefits of using an architect is design pays.

    Design, first Impressions matters; standard architect's drawings can be hard to read. We use the latest 3D design programme so that you can engage in the design process. See it, walk through it and contribute at every level before it is built. We can also leverage the technology and collaborate with consultants to produce integrated design models.This gives the client confidence that his consultant's work is coordinated and speeds up the design process.
