From Our Website

Aricab Architects is a client focused design studio with an impressive track record delivering domestic and commercial projects on time and on budget. The business is located in Shrivenham near Swindon in Oxfordshire. The services offered include feasibility studies, Planning and Listed Building advice, Planning Applications, Listed Building Applications, Building Regulation Applications and Project Management to completion. We have experience in private and social housing, self build, industrial and commercial developments, healthcare and education and nursing home developments.

We have a core policy of investing in and developing the skills of our professional staff through continuing professional development which keeps us abreast of changes to legislation and technical advances particularly in the areas of sustainable development, planning law, Construction Health and Safety and the Equality Act (formerly The Disability Discrimination Act). We use the latest computer technology which allows us to provide clients with an efficient and cost effective service. Our computer system allows us to produce 3D models and "fly through" animations which enable our clients to visualize their projects at an early stage in the design process.

Our commercial clients include Honda (UK), Wilson Tool International, Bathwick Tyres Ltd., RAC, Brick Kiln Car Bodies and Wicklesham Commercial Properties. We have experience with new build office, factory, shop and warehouse developments. At Wicklesham Farm, Faringdon we have been involved over a number of years converting and extending a number of traditional stone barns to offices, including a Grade II listed barn.

We offer the self build client advice about obtaining Planning Permission, construction costs, selection of building contractor and utilising either traditional or timber framed construction methods. We provide a personal design package ranging from "Permissions Only" (obtaining Planning Permission/Listed Building Consent and Building Regulations approval) right through to a complete Project Management Service. We also provide planning and development advice to Private Developers for both new build and conversion projects.
