Over the last 16 years Spawforths Architecture team have worked closely with their academic clients to prepare Outline and Full and Reserved Matters Planning Applications  for many new and refurbished academic facilities , sports facilities, administrative support facilities and student accommodation.  Working closely with our in-house Planning team  we have the broad range of skills  necessary  to secure planning permission on even the most complex of sites including greenbelt, conservation areas and works to listed buildings.

We offer  our Clients a full architectural service including  concept development, detailed development and project management and coordination of the wider design team. Conversely we can tailor our services  to work with an external project manager/lead consultants.

We work collaboratively with the wider design team, coordinating their outputs to minimise the risk of conflicting information being prepared thus ensuring construction proceeds on site with the minimum of disruption.  

Following the submission of an application we  monitor its progress and liaise  with the  Planning Officer  and the design team to discharge conditions.
