Commercial, Industrial & Agricultural Packages

New-build effluent plant housing, Lancashire

RIBA Stage 1-5 architectural packages and design consultancy services for commercial, industrial and agricultural buildings.


As a technologist I’ve been designing industrial sheds for nearly 20 years, and very rarely are two ever the same. Each client’s needs are paramount to the successful delivery of industrial designs. Whether the units are pre-fabricated modular or traditional construction,  planning, building regulations and tender packages are available for all such projects.

Our list of industrial clients is growing due to the successful projects we’ve completed to-date. We are well experienced in delivering projects requiring specifications over and above building regulations to meet the needs of insurers such as FM Global. Our professional indemnity policy recognises our need and covers us for the delivery of fire-safe cladding systems, units requiring high rates of ventilation, or buildings with higher levels of trade effluent.


Commercial architecture is fast-paced and needs to be of the highest quality. Businesses investing in property need to see a return on their projects, and this needs to be factored into the earliest stages of design. 

Our range of past commercial projects is vast. Taking the fundamentals of building design and combining it with the operational requirements for each business hits the spot where design briefs are mastered.
