Life slowly returns to normal.

After a very strange 18 months for all of us it would seem that life is slowly returning to some kind of normal.

We have worked remotely throughout with only our Office Manager being furloughed, and as a team have continued to support our major clients as they worked through the pandemic as best as they could.

Sadly, our major sporting project was cancelled at the last moment, days before contractors were due to start on site, as it required public funds that just don’t exist at present. We are still hopeful that it will be revived in some form in the not too distant future.

We have continued to work closely with various regions of Taylor Wimpey and our sites at Crawley Down and Turner’s Hill, East Grinstead are both progressing well. Our phases at Andover for Taylor Wimpey West London are very advanced and in places nearing completion.

Over the first two quarters of this year we have supplied production phase information to Taylor Wimpey South Thames for 136 units based on national standard product at Copthorne, and to Taylor Wimpey West London for 44 bespoke units, both of which are due to start on site in the very near future.

Our bespoke team have produced planning and production phase information for two new large private dwellings on Hook Heath, Woking for Luxuria Developments, which are nearing completion and after a successful planning appeal two more bespoke designs in Woking for the same company.

Our bespoke team is currently working on a new 3500 sq foot luxury home for a private client in Cranleigh, following our successful scheme at Warrens, a few years ago in the same road.

Our work on the Grade 2 listed Leybourne Manor continues for Taylor Wimpey South Thames with the restored, original roof trusses now being installed, it is anticipated that the building should be water tight for the first time in a very long time in the next few months.

Among other smaller projects we have provided production phase drawings for a refurbishment and mansard to form three flats in SW12, and planning designs for a glazed link and orangery to a Manor House near Alton.

We are beginning to see more new enquiries from the larger housebuilders and are much more optimistic for a stable second half of the year and 2022.

We are sad to say goodbye to our office manager, Elaine who has retired after 17 years with us, we all wish her a really happy and relaxing time with her recent granddaughter.

We have a couple of vacancies within the office and would be pleased to hear from anyone interested in joining our team. The roles would best suit Part 1 or Part 2 architects and we have long experience of helping similar candidates pass through these phases to the next level of their careers, however we would be delighted to hear from any level of experience. We also offer the opportunity for flexible working for applicants looking to return to work on a part time or reduced hours basis. If you are interested in finding out more please contact us at
