Social Responsibility

We try to make a positive difference to local communities and the wider environment, raise awareness of causes and encourage community spirit. The practice and staff are encouraged to participate in a wide range of local events with many supporting local charities

Young Professionals

With a programme of work placements and work experience for school children, we assist with the personal and professional development of future generations.

They experience working in a fun and professional office, learn how to use 3D modelling software, Computer Aided Design (CAD) and are often taken onto construction sites.  We mentor school of architecture university students and employ RIBA Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 students, actively supporting them throughout their studies and examinations.

School visits and Careers Fairs

We actively engage with the next generation, inspiring young minds and future architects.

We regularly visit local schools to give inspiring talks and assist in design workshops.  At secondary school level, we attend career fairs and engage with students considering a career in design, engineering and architecture.

We have joined up with Ecologi – an environmental organisation that facilitate the funding of carbon offset projects and tree planting around the world.
