Architectural Design

We offer our clients the full range of RIBA plan of work stages from inception to completion

Architecture is our primary function where we offer our clients the full range of RIBA plan of work stages from inception to completion. We are equally at home masterplanning your development, preparing outline design solutions that meet your needs, submitting detailed planning applications, producing tender and construction package information and managing your projects on site.

One of the most valuable contributions which CHQ offers its clients is the provision of a fast and efficient feasibility service. Through many years of experience CHQ have tailored this service to meet our client’s needs and expectations.  

Although we specialise in the retail sector we are proud of an extensive client list covering many other sectors of the construction industry including commercial, industrial, leisure, health care trusts, residential developers and government organisations. 

As Architects, CHQ never underestimate the importance of good design, but we know that this has to be combined with awareness of client expectations, effective management, sound technical ability and pragmatism. CHQ Partnership has a long standing reputation for producing and delivering innovative, sustainable buildings within budget and on programme. With this said we are always looking for ways to further improve our services and our Managing Director has often attended MIPIM conventions (The leading real estate event) to keep us aware of future designs and extend upon our knowledge as a company. The link for the latest MIPIM convention can be found below.
