Highland architecture can help assist with your building project if you are in highland that includes inverness, dingwall, muir of ord, beauly, alness, or if you are over on the west coast we carry out work in gairloch and lochinve also, in fact just about anywhere in highland! Lennox Boyd is a chartered architectural technologist has 30 years experience working in architects' offices in the north and north east of scotland. Lennox has worked in both residential and commercial architectural sectors, in moray, as well as in highland.
The responsibilities of engineers and architects often overlap. Both professions are integral to the design and construction of structures, such as buildings and bridges. Architects design the space to meet client needs, as well as the aesthetic appearance of the inside and exterior of the building. Engineers' main responsibility is to ensure the design is safe and meets all appropriate building codes. Engineers concern themselves with making buildings safe and functional by selecting structural materials, determining the structural members of the design, and specify the electrical, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and plumbing systems.
If you have a new build project or an extension or loft conversion project in mind then you are no doubt looking for a good architect or architectural technologist. Over the past few years I have been involved in a lot of projects all over the Highlands not just locally in Dingwall or Inverness. I have worked over on the west coast in and around Ullapool Gairloch and Lochinver especially. I have worked with many architects in the area, it is good to have competition! Colin Armstrong has probably the biggest private architectural office in the highlands and has produced many interesting projects.
A recently completed house in Achiltibuie, this house has been finished to a high standard by local joiner Neil Mackenzie. The design has Siberian larch cladding and large south facing windows offering a fantastic view out over the atlantic. A log burning stove and high quality oak finishes throughout give this house a real luxury feel. Solar panels have beend used to provide hot water to property. A recently designed house in the beautiful and rugged Torridon area, this house design mimcs a traditional house that has been sympathetically extended over the years.
We live in an exciting and turbulent time. One of great innovation as well as great uncertainty. Fun fact, did you know that an ancient Chinese curse was to tell someone that you "hope they live in interesting times." Well, we certainly live in them now, and we need to be ready for anything if we're going to get through them. Becoming energy independent is a step in the right direction for that. To be energy independent means that you don't need to rely on the grid to power your home. Now, there are different levels of independence that different people will require.
If you are considering a building project and want to know how much it will cost for professional fees, then our guide below will help you budget. I know how frustrating it can be to get a hard and fast quote from an architect or architectural service firm, after years of being in practice - I know how much the job will cost. So I have given indicative costs below. Once we have had a chance to discuss your project in more detail then I will send you a fixed fee quote. Please note that we do not have to apply VAT to our professional fees (under the threshold) saving you a massive 20% on our competitors.

Having no previous building experience we searched the internet locally for a architect and after reading the reviews. Lennox has provided an excellent service for us so far and he has been extremely patient and accommodating in every. We have renovated several properties over recent years and dealt with 4 different architects, none of which were worthy of recommendation. Lennox however has restored our faith. From the very first meeting he has dealt with our proposals in a professional and efficient manner, preparing plans extremely quickly.
