why choose us?

Why choose a trained architect?

  • Chartered architects (RIBA/ARB) undergo seven years of rigorous architectural training – the longest training period of all the professions, even doctors! Anyone can alter a building but it takes a trained architect to do it with imagination and professionalism.
  • Architects bring impartial and creative thinking to projects, both small or large - whether you are adapting or expanding a building or constructing a new building.
  • They also have the skills to guide you through every step of a project from initial design, to planning, and throughout the construction process to completion.
  • Architects add value, maximise impact, functionality and future marketability of a building through imaginative and good design and their ability to maximise space, optimise light and choose the right materials.

Why choose Ian Minter Architects?

  • Principal, Ian Minter, is a qualified chartered architect, ARB registered and a RIBA member with over 25 years’ experience working at partner level on both domestic and commercial projects for a practice which features regularly in the UK’s Top 100 Architects

  • To support your project the practice offers a range of complimentary services - Project Management, CDM, Fire Risk Assessment & Fire Safety Management.
  • To give you peace of mind, RIBA members, are obliged to carry professional indemnity insurance.

Architecture is really about well-being. I think that people want to feel good in a space… On the one hand it’s about shelter, but it’s also about pleasure.
