Architectural expertise on your doorstep:

Apex Architecture Ltd is a multi-disciplinary Architectural practice consisting of Architectural Technologists, Architects, Technicians and Surveyors, led by Richard Jones, Charlie Vine and Jon White.

We are a Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists registered practice with offices in Cheltenham, Monmouthshire and the Forest of Dean. Our expertise in construction technology means we balance creativity with practicality to design buildings that are both beautiful to look at and a pleasure to live or work in.

Having a reputation for high standards of design, which create schemes tailored to suit the budget, we work hard to maintain the highest standards of service to our clients, who are both developers and private individuals. Our staff are experienced in a range of projects from housing schemes, to self-builds and home extensions. We also specialise in barn conversions, heritage properties and listed buildings.

Our services include obtaining planning and listed building consents, detailed design for building regulations approvals, contract administration and delivering the final building.

We are happy to discuss new projects with prospective clients and explore how we may be able to help and guide you through the process, so please make contact with the team and find out how we can assist you.

Thinking Buildings are a creative, design & ideas led architects practice. Our team of talented designers deliver fantastic quality projects throughout the UK from our Oxfordshire and Derbyshire studios. We combine beauty and function to deliver buildings which our client’s love.

We provide architecture, master-planning, interior design and project management services. Our practice has worked hard to develop its reputation for great architecture and its client focused approach. This has been acknowledged through repeat commissions, client recommendations and testimonials.

Our portfolio of work covers all types of residential (with a recognised expertise for high end houses for private individuals), developer (including Housing association), schools and commercial projects.

Robothams Architects are a RIBA Chartered practice designing buildings for a wide range of clients in the education, residential and commercial sectors.

Our practice is managed by partners, associate directors and associates, providing a well developed structure and clarity for clients.  Each project is managed by a senior member of staff and is designated a director who reviews progress and manages resources to ensure excellent service delivery.  In support the company employs a range of architects, technicians and administrators to work on every project.  By forming defined teams that balance design and technical expertise clients benefit from teams with ongoing knowledge of a project or institution providing continuity and certainty.

Whilst placing a strong emphasis on ‘hands on knowledge’ we also actively support training and academic achievement. Of our 22 staff over half have chartered status within either the Royal Institute of British Architects or British Institute of Architectural Technologists; or are graduates from an architecture related degree course.  A regular programme of continuing professional development (CPD) seminars keeps everyone abreast of the latest legislative and technical innovations, and staff are encouraged to attend external seminars and conferences.

Information Technology has increased productivity, visualisation and the quality of our service overall.  Using Revit and AutoCAD as the primary tools we have developed a sophisticated system of drawing filing and archiving, facilitating the sharing of knowledge and promoting team working.  Both in-house and out sourced visualisations give our clients a far greater insight into the proposed scheme long before work actually starts on site.

Stride Treglown is an employee-owned architectural practice of over 300 people.

The practice was started in 1953 by two architects, Ray Stride and Gerry Treglown.

Ray was a stickler for detail, buildability and process, while Gerry was a socially adept, creative powerhouse.

Their personalities live on and define who we are today.

We’re professional. We’re creative.

We are not driven by ego. Instead, we focus on the needs of our clients and the people that use our projects, creating inspiring, sustainable spaces that genuinely work.
