We are able to offer a comprehensive range of Architectural services tailored to our clients' needs

Clarke Butterfield Architects is able to offer a range of the services both in-house or via its links with directly appointed external consultants. In addition, it operates from a studio in Shepherd's Bush which is shared with five other practices and therefore has access to a wider range of resources, by agreement, when required.


Quick delivery to agreed timetables

We are able to respond quickly to initial enquiries and then agree a project programme for delivering required information to meet deadlines, be it for the submission of a Planning Application or for the production of Construction Information. On larger projects we are used to working with our client's in-house teams or external Project Managers to deliver information to programme requirements.


Personal service backed by up-to-date technology

The individual personal service that we offer to our clients is backed by the latest in current technology. We are able to offer quick sketch schemes in 3D visualisation through to 2D drawings or 3D models.


A practice offering a full range of services

We offer a full range of services to meet our clients needs. This can either be a full traditional service from feasibility to completion on site or can be for one stage, for example for the production of construction drawings only.
