Practice Update

It has been an enjoyable, challenging and rewarding 2013 to date for AV Architects undertaking many new commissions whilst overseeing projects that have moved away from the drawing board and onto site and construction.

As we reach the 3rd anniversary of the companies incorporation we are pleased to have updated one or two of these projects on our website in recent weeks and envisage adding to this portfolio shortly.

One project published of particularly note is the Nursery extension and refurbishment at Swain House Primary School. The project represents our work in the educational sector which we haven’t managed to publish previously despite working on many projects over the last 2 years. Working as part of a design team appointed by Bradford based Project Management partnership Smith Parson, we have enjoyed the challenging yet very rewarding work in this sector. Our work in this field includes several refurbishment projects in primary schools across Bradford and Keighley with the most predigests schemes being undertaken at Swain House (Contractors – The Together Group) and Parkwood Primary Schools (Contractors – Bermar Building) in which early years classroom and nursery environments have been transformed. Other smaller projects that have been delivered at Reevy Hill, Strong Close, Nessfield, and Ashlands Primary School and feasibility work at many other schools in the region have maintained a healthy workload to manage. Working in this sector presents different challenges, not least tight deadlines, but also a variety of architectural design and technical matters to embrace. As noted the work is very rewarding and it is a pleasure to see the great transformation of spaces that will have a significant benefit to many pupils who attend these school.

Other work AV Architects have been involved with recently includes several house extension and renovation projects for private Clients and two more new build dwellings in the local vicinity. We look forward to posting photographs and more detailed descriptions of some of these projects shortly as several of these are approaching completion. Of particular interesting in this sector of our workload we have a intriguing contemporary dwelling in the setting of a listed building which is approaching completion, a swimming pool and garden room project and the development of a new dwelling and facilities in a beautiful setting at Farview Fishing Lakes.

Also in the pipeline we are looking forward to delivering a new development of flats in Haworth following recent planning approval and other housing schemes that are at feasibility stage. We have also been commission for a couple of project associated with Listed Buildings. This continued and varied workload is encouraging and we look forward to developing our portfolio and experience further in 2014 which proves to be an equally challenging and hopefully rewarding year.
