Gareth Andrews studied Architecture at the University of Nottingham, and has been working in the construction industry within Northern Ireland and abroad for over ten years:
- Registered Architect with the Architects Registration Board (ARB) since 2005.
- Chartered Architect with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) since 2006.
- On Construction Domestic Energy Assessor (OCDEA) as member of the BRE accredited scheme.
As a Project Architect in commercial practice, Gareth has considerable experience in a wide range of projects of varying sectors, stages and scales - from domestic extensions to large-scale residential developments with values over £100m; from commercial fit-outs to an award-winning six-storey headquarters for a regional charity. Gareth has worked on projects in the UK, Ireland and Romania, bringing a creative and sensitive design approach to fulfil the requirements and meet the aspirations of each client. Please take a look at my CV and some examples of my work in architectural practice.
We are pleased to offer a range of architectural services including Feasibility Studies, Architectural Design, Planning Applications & Building Control Applications for residential new-builds and alterations & extensions. We also work with non-domestic clients including churches and charities for refurbishment and remodelling. Please contact us to discuss your project or aspirations and arrange a free initial consultation.
Gareth has gained expertise in all relevant aspects of graphic design, modelling and computer-aided design visualisation including massing models, animations, visual impact studies and photorealistic montages.
Images & studies can be produced to help clients visualise designs and also to aid negotiations with the Planning Service and other statutory authorities.
After many years' experience of collaborating with energy assessors in domestic and commercial projects, Gareth committed to becoming an On Construction Domestic Energy Assessor (OCDEA) through experiential learning and qualification. This allowed Gareth to study his interest in responsible low-energy design and, critically, to be able to provide a holistic approach to sustainable design where these important considerations are not simply a means to an end, but are fully integrated into the design process.
