Community building projects
The practice has a long-standing relationship with several Church of England Dioceses, and also undertakes commissions for other government bodies, charities, educational and community groups. In some cases, such as the Court Service or the Caravan Club, the client has long experience of commissioning buildings, and we work within their established systems and procurement structures. In other cases, such as the Kingsclere Youth Centre, we work with organisations that are new to the process, and we can offer advice in assembling a brief, and managing the project to completion.
