Our Approach

“Excellence in design through knowledge, experience & understanding.”

Architecture is our passion, and at BHB we are committed to delivering outstanding & innovative designs that benefit the user, enhance the environment and inspire the wider community. Drawing from 90 years of experience & knowledge across two practices, we work across all sectors at all stages within the design and construction process. Projects have included feasibility studies, master planning, detailed design, project management and contract administration. By drawing on our combined experience and knowledge we are able to offer our clients a unique and holistic service, tailor-made to the individuals’ requirements & the nature of each project.

We strive to provide a service that is second to none and in testament to this we are proud of the long-standing relationships we enjoy with many of our clients.

Our Philosophy

“Architecture is more than just good aesthetics. It is the impact our designs have upon the lives of the users and wider community.
We strive to understand our client’s objectives, articulate the vision and deliver great buildings and spaces.”

Scope of Services

BHB Architects offers full architectural & lead consultant services that encapsulate all stages of the RIBA plan of work, from initial feasibility studies & options appraisals, to detailed design / production information, contract administration on site & final handover of the completed project.

Interior Design

BHB Architects offers in-house interior design services for both existing architectural and standalone interior refurbishment projects. Our team of designers work closely with clients to ensure their ideas are seen through to reality within their commercial expectations. Working within a chartered firm of architects enables the team to fully integrate both the interior and exterior design into a coherent co-ordinated solution.

Principal Designer

Under the new Construction Design & Management regulations (CDM 2015), a Principal Designer (formally CDM-C / Planning Supervisor) is required for all construction projects and is to be appointed by the client during the design phase. Principal Designers are integral members of the design team who will plan, manage, monitor and co-ordinated issues relating to health and safety. BHB have successfully carried out this role across a varied project base and offer this service in-house to any new or existing client.

Building Information Modelling (BIM)

BHB Architects are committed to the collaborative BIM working environment and have the appropriate procedures and competent staff in place, to ensure the highest quality of coordinated design output, providing real benefit to the Client, Consultant and Contractor organisations alike.

In addition to the BIM outputs generated as part of our Architectural service, BHB Architects have recently been appointed as specialist BIM consultants by main contracting organisations, in order to   coordinate and manage whole development models on behalf of the end users. This process has developed our in house capabilities significantly.
