Surfacing from Covid 19

As with many architect practices we are mainly still working remote from our main office to better protect our staff. Nevertheless, we are busy with projects of all sizes, types and at all stages of the building process. Here is a flavour with an update on just three of these.

Our two major Heritage Lottery funded projects are proceeding apace:
Work has started on site at Grade I Listed Union Chain Bridge, the oldest traffic carrying chain suspension bridge in the world. Sadly, the 200 year anniversary celebrations of it providing a key transport link between Scotland and England had to be celebrated ‘on-line’.
English Heritage’s project ‘Belsay Awakes’ will shortly be going out to tender with works expected to start on site in Spring 2021.

Detailed work is well underway on our Scheduled farmstead in Northumberland which will provide six new dwellings of varying sizes. Consent for the work was achieved during ‘lockdown’.

I joined the practice in the 1980’s. It was known then as a practice of integrity and professionalism, creating quality designs through friendly personal service. What has changed? Workload is slightly different now, responding over the years to shifting economic conditions, new concerns about climate change and client expectations, but our underlying philosophy about the way we choose to work remains the same.
