Our clients needed an architect in Ashburton, Devon to provide them with a Full Architectural Service for their New build residential development of 18 flats.
The Ashburton Cattle Market site is situated in the heart of Ashburton, surrounded by historic and listed buildings. We have designed 18 apartments, housed in two blocks, split over three storeys. The timber structure will be clad with a combination of coloured render, slate hanging and local stone, designed to blend in with the local vernacular architecture. The design was developed in conjunction with the Environment Agency to address the inherent flood risk issues within the area.
Detailed consultations were held with Dartmoor National Park and the Town Council before submission. The application received unanimous support at the planning Committee meeting and was praised for its sympathetic design within the heart of this historic town.
Construction is due to start in Summer 2010.
I have no hesitation in recommending van Ellen + Sheryn Architects to any prospective customer. My experience was excellent – great service without fault, and very good value for money. If I need to employ an Architect again I would engage van Ellen + Sheryn without question.
van Ellen + Sheryn offered a flexible and scalable service from initial consultancy, through design and application, and even including project management of the build, according to our needs and budget.
Our project was quite modest in scale, nonetheless the company were thorough and professional in every way, paying great attention to all the details, and showing full understanding of the many regulations, procedures and formalities that had to be observed for planning and building compliance.
Van Ellen + Sheryn made the entire process very simple and easy to understand, explaining all the steps in plain English, providing valuable advice while interpreting our wishes and needs to deliver a design we were very happy with, and delivering or facilitating the planning applications, engineering drawings, surveys and consultancy with the builders and various other agencies, so that the project ran smoothly, on time and without stress.
Thank you van Ellen + Sheryn!
