We provide full architectural services from conception through to completion. The design stages include an initial feasibility study, planning and technical design drawings.
We can help you find a suitable builder by inviting tenders on your behalf. We will then appraise and report on the tenders to help you decide which quote to proceed with. This will save you time and reduce the stress of finding a builder. We will work with you every step of the way to ensure that you get the best possible outcome for your project.
A Building Contract is a document that outlines the total amount you will pay the builder for the building work and includes all the arrangements for the work, the conditions which all parties must follow and much more. As a contract administrator, we organise meetings at agreed intervals, carry out visual inspections, certify interim payments and advise on the final Construction Cost.
We offer low energy design services using Passivhaus principles to create energy efficient buildings. We use the PHPP (Passivhaus Planning Package) to analyse and optimize a building’s energy efficiency, ensuring the highest standards of energy performance.

What our clients have said about working with us...
"After being sorely let down by another local architect we asked Artis Architects to step in and take on the architectural design for a kitchen and WC single storey extension at the rear of our house. From the start Sheena proved very professional listening attentively to our requirement, answering questions and providing constructive suggestions. She produced three initial drawings very promptly including a wild card outside the brief which we decided to take forward. Final drawings were produced progressively as we developed the detailed plans.
Sheena also handled the approvals and liaised with the Engineer for the structural specifications, with aplomb. During the building she was quick to answer further questions as they arose.
We have been very happy with Artis Architects who are a pleasure to work with. Sheena is very professional and patient, communicates clearly and produces results promptly. We are very pleased with the end result and would not hesitate to recommend Artis Architects."
