The Practice

To survive since 1946 in the choppy waters of the building industry does show a fair level of commitment as a practice. Enthusiasm as a personal trait is an important measure of our employment policy as is a willingness to give as much attention as is necessary to achieve a high standard.

The practice is shared by Tina Gough and Colin Haylock and employs four architectural staff supported by our Practice Manager. Previous partner Robin Dower is our Expert Consultant. By retaining a small workforce we feel better placed to maintain the high quality of work our clients have come to expect of us. Able to work independently, or collectively as a team, we are well equipped to tackle a wide range of projects.

Spence & Dower

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.
