Our People

Our team, led by four Directors, have extensive experience and knowledge in the design, documentation and construction of scientific facilities. Their backgrounds and their areas of expertise differ, but as a team we have the breadth and depth of experience required to deliver first class facilities that not only look good, but are practical.

When working with us you will soon appreciate that we are people who have a passion for architecture and a strong desire to find the best solution for our clients.
