I am a Registered Architect who provides all Architectural Services from the beginning of a project through to completion /certification / handover.

My focus is on the design and build of first quality projects for varied Clients on varied sites. 

I work with tried and tested consultants as required by particular project needs - Engineers, Ecologists, Hydrologists, Fire Consultants, Safety Consultants, etc. 

I have a very good relationship with Builders and work so that the entire process, from beginning to end, is an enjoyable one for all concerned.

All Clients for whom I have completed a project have been more than happy with the results. Many of them will enjoy the result - their home - for the rest of their lives.
