If you are thinking of starting a building project, whatever its size, then it makes sense to consult a professional. An architect, such as Wastell & Porter, will guide you through the design and building process, will listen to your needs and preferences, and we will help you translate your vision into reality.

To any building project, no matter how small, we can bring three essential qualities:


Whether you are looking for tradition or innovation, boldness or understatement, an architect can lift your project out of the ordinary. Anyone can alter a building. It takes a professional to do it with flair, imagination and style.

Value for money

An architect will find the extra light and space you didn’t know you had, suggest materials you hadn’t thought of and help you find a suitable contractor at the right price.

Freedom from worry

Architects are not only designers, they are trouble-shooters. They will guide you through the complex procedures of planning permission and building regulations. They will attend to detail and will monitor the contractor’s programme of works through to completion.

An architect can provide better value for money. Professional attention to detail will save money both immediately, through the most efficient use of space and the careful selection of materials and finishes, and in the long term through careful environmental design, energy efficiency improvements and future maintenance costs.

Step by step, always with your consultation and agreement, we will lead you through the entire process from inception to the completion.
