I am a Chartered Architectural Technologist, registered with the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technology, (CIAT), with over 25 years experience in architectural design offices preparing designs for many different building types. In 2012 I started my own company. Since then we have grown to a staff of six and have completed design work with a total build value of £8 million.

We specialise in providing services to domestic clients and have obtained over 300 planning approvals for our clients and over 400 building warrants. We are passionate about providing great design that is bespoke to each client at an affordable cost.

We were fortunate to know the owner and cannot recommend their services enough. DDS created the best use of our property and enabled us to get the most out of the floor space. In addition details & advice on areas such as lighting & layout were excellent and helped us visualise the property before work started. This in turn saved money & time which is never a bad thing. Great also with liaising with suppliers, builders and anyone working on the project. Never had an issue with flexibility and being firm where necessary on any modifications that were considered along the way.
