I don't just design four walls and a roof, I create total environments, interiors and exteriors, that satisfy functional needs and are exciting, dynamic spaces in which to work and live. Whether you are remodelling, adding on, or building from scratch, I can guide the way. Working with contractors and other construction professionals, I can help you achieve a well-designed project that meets your needs and works within your budget and time frame. We are available to solve problems, save you money, and make your life easier.

Most building projects start with a want or need. "I need more file space in my office." Or, "We've outgrown our house." But how does that need or want get translated into square metres and three-dimensional space? That is what I have been trained to do, solve problems in creative ways. With my broad knowledge of design and construction, I can show you alternatives and options you might never think of on your own. Need more room for your growing family? I can show you how to enlarge your home so you don't have to move. Have a limited budget? I will look for ways to make your project cost effective and meet your cost budgets.

Let's face it, building is a long process that is often messy and disruptive, particularly if you are living or working in the space under construction. I look after your interests and try to find ways to make that process go smoothly. If your project requires engineering or other specialist design or consultancy services, I can coordinate teams of experts so you don't have to. I deal with complex planning applications and ever changing Building Regulations or Scottish Building Warrant. Based on your requirements I can help you find local qualified construction contractors and make regular visits to the construction site to help verify that the project is being built according to plans and specifications.
