We are a compact team working from a single studio space in Colchester, Essex. All correspondence to and from the practice is circulated around the entire group, so that everyone knows what is going on. We have weekly meetings where each project is reviewed by the entire group, as well as monthly “white days” when we put project work aside, share information and look at the wider social and cultural issues that affect the way that we work.
Our team is stable, we aim to keep our employees for the long term. Because we work as a single studio we are able to vary the number of people working on a project according to it’s needs. Over the life of a project we will vary the number of people working on it according to it’s needs.
We use management software tailored to the architectural profession to resource and monitor our projects and programming software to manage timescale. Our drawings are produced in Vectorworks 2016, which gives us 2D and 3D CAD capability. With ongoing CAD training and support, our practice is BIM Level 2 compliant and we hold the capability to share drawings with other consultants and communicate by email and cloud based resources to our clients.
We use these capabilities to move our projects forward but still allowing time for proper reflection, aiming to deliver good quality and enjoyable buildings within an agreed timescale and budget.
