Office is based in Kingston South West London. All staff are computer literate and are encouraged to develop an understanding of most CAD packages. AutoCAD is the preferred two dimensional package, with Vector Works in tandem with Photoshop and Artlantis for three dimensional work. The good old pencil and felt pen are also encouraged as a medium to portray ideas and develop details. As most offices, staffing levels fluctuate to cater for project work loads and our relationships with other disciplines enable large projects to be dealt with in a professional and efficient manor. Each project is programmed and staffed to accomplish deadlines under the supervision of a director.
