Products & Services

Architecture

We offer a range of architectural services for a variety of building types and situations.

MIXED USE PROJECTS
We provide architectural services planned to deliver your building on cost and on schedule. We are client focussed and will communicate with you regularly. It is important to us that your project works for you. We have years of expertise in producing design solutions and in many different building types including workspace, retail, educational and leisure.

TRANSPORT PROJECTS
We are ideal architects for rail projects in the UK, as some of our staff have decades of experience in transport infrastructure, buildings and master planning. With our network of engineering and other collaborators, we can tackle a wide variety of rail projects, from refitting accommodation in small stations to master planning studies for major projects.

RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS
We design house extensions, bespoke new build and other types of residential projects. When addressing a residential project, it is paramount to understand the client’s requirements, and also to look at the opportunities the site gives us. We have experience both with traditional and heritage materials and also with modern minimalistic design. We provide assistance in the tender process if required and can also do site checks during the works, for example.

CONSERVATION
If you require a listed building consent, or your site is in a conservation area or an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) or greenbelt, we can usually assist you with suitable plans and negotiations. Meetings with Conservation Officers and others in the planning departments of Local Authorities are often necessary to look at what may achieve consent.

Other services include

• CHANGE OF USE & OTHER TYPES OF PLANNING APPLICATION
• BUILDING SURVEYS
• FEASIBILITY CONSULTATIONS
• GARDEN LAYOUT DESIGN

Customer Testimonials

Helen Brunskill worked in the capacity of ‘Team Leader’ managing architectural and engineering teams to provide design solutions and progress design to the completion of Riba stage D and E for three underground stations enhanced refurbishment projects.

These were complex design projects and Helen provided a professional client interface ensuring quality was paramount at all times, and as a design priority; that interfacing of the various design disciplines and architects was managed to provide a full integrated design solution.


I will tell all my friends that if they are looking for an architect with empathy and integrity they should give Brunskill Design a call.


We were really impressed with the way Brunskill listened to what we wanted and worked with that whilst also injecting creative ideas to help produce a really strong design. We are delighted with the outcome.

We decided we needed to reorganise the plan of our large house in the Conservation Area. We wanted to see what Brunskill could do for us. They came up with an idea that has transformed the way the house feels, rearranging space to enable us to plan for our future needs as well as current wishes.

They provided a comprehensive coordinating service, providing very detailed plans and specifications for the Builder. We felt this was worth the fee in keeping things organised and to a very high standard in keeping with the Victorian property. All the building regulations aspects had been checked beforehand. They also arranged the Building Contract and introduced the builder. So, even when one of our suppliers had problems, it went smoothly and everyone who see the house really likes it.


Working with Brunskill Design was our first experience of hiring architects. We needed advice including how best to create an entirely new living space, how to bring to life the remainder of an old Victorian property to how to select and manage a team of surveyors and builders. Helen and her team provided support and guidance throughout an 18 month process. They have created a beautiful modern living space that embraces the garden and is a wonderfully light place to be even on a gloomy day.

Though modern, it complements the traditional feel of the remainder of the house, and the two come together through careful attention to detail. Brunskill Design also undertook the project management, liaising with the planning department, building control and the team of builders. Weekly visits to the site by Brunskill Design ensured high quality standards were met throughout, and the risk of a project over-run was tightly managed. We couldn’t be happier with the end result, which simply could not have been achieved without the contribution of Helen and her team.
