About BR Architecture

BR Architecture is a family run Business which has been running for 20 years. Barry Richards has over 25 years of experience in Architecture and has worked with a number of local and national firms in the past on Residential & Commercial Projects.

The company prides itself on offering our clients a very Personal Service. The bulk of work comes from Repeat Customers and recommendations proving a high regard of BR Architecture and the quality of service provided.

Being a Family Business and understanding the difficulties of juggling Work and Business, we fully understand the need for flexibility and can offer consultations at reasonable times and places to suit you. This approach often proves more productive, and we are more than happy to arrange meetings early in the morning, in the evening, weekends or even after the children have gone to bed.

Once the Initial Meeting and the Measurement Survey has taken place and the Plans have been completed, a meeting will be arranged, again at a time and place to suit the client, this will afford us the opportunity to explain the Drawings and answer any questions. We will ensure that every client understands the Proposals and is completely satisfied prior to submitting any proposals to the Local Authority.

It is important that you use an Architectural Designer with experience and a proven track record, as the Design and Plans Stage is the most important part of any Building Project.

Whether you are looking to Build your Dream Home or add an Extension to your House or re-configure your Internal SpaceBR Architecture can help guide you through the process.

Our Services

BR Architecture provides a Design Service to Business or Home Owners in an accessible, easy-to-use, customer friendly format. To get your project off the ground you will need an initial site visit to discuss your proposals – (Free Advice). BR Architecture will then advise you on your project regarding ideas, design, costs, what approvals are required etc.

A benefit of being “on site” during the meetings is that we will be able to visualize the desired work, have access to measurements and generally get a feel for the space, which can prove difficult when looking at plans and photographs.

Upon your approval, BR Architecture will carry out any Measurement Surveys and Draw up Plans as Existing. From our Initial Meeting and Design Brief, we will produce Sketch Scheme Designs and Planning Drawings for you Approval and Submit a Planning Application on your behalf. Once Planning has been granted we will take your project through to the Final Design Stage and produce detailed Building Regulation Drawings and submit a Building Regulation application to Building Control.



With BR Architecture you receive a very personal service.

It is imperative that you, the client, fully understands the design/plans/drawings and we explain in detail the full scope of works before moving on to more detail designs.

Some people have a clear idea of what they are looking for from day one, were as others need more help and inspiration. We will work with you to ensure that your dream becomes a reality.
