The ethos of Colman Architects is to work closely with Clients and use our extensive experience in Master Planning, Offices, Residential, Retail, Leisure, Interior Design, Mixed Use and repurposing to create sustainable, thriving, active environments in both new build and existing buildings.

The size of the firm, between 20-25 architects, enables the board of Directors to have an intimate knowledge of every project from start to finish. The strong senior management team has developed over many years and every person is an expert in their respective field. They are responsible for the practice’s reputation for quality control and hands on management.

We will work with you to make every opportunity the best it can be.

This has been developed over our 25+ years of successfully delivering construction projects and follows the principles established in the RIBA’s Plan of Work.
