Geirsson Design Ltd. provides a personal & professional architectural service in the south of England and further afield, across a wide range of building typologies. Each project is met with the same dedication and attention, whether it is big or small, and strong emphasis is put on collaborative approach with clients leading to bespoke solutions that surpass the clients' expectations.
The practice has enjoyed a good track record in achieving consents from Local Planning Authorities for its clients, which have consisted of both national and local property developers, as well as private individuals. The practice offers full architectural services in connection with its projects, as well as tailored services to meet individual client requirements. These services include:
• Feasibility Studies
• Concept Design & Site Planning
• Planning Application drawings & documents
• Drawings for Building Regulations approval
• Construction Information & Tender documents
• Tender Action & Contract Administration
Clients will also benefit from the practice's ability and experience in employing different architectural styles such as contemporary, traditional, Arts & Crafts and Art Deco across a variety of project types. These projects include private houses, large apartment buildings, commercial developments, alterations to listed buildings and interior design.
Geirsson Design Ltd. has considerable experience in the design of retirement housing developments, including assisted living housing. For this specialist field the practice is able to draw on the director's background in this housing sector, having worked as a Design Manager for a nationwide development organisation specializing in the retirement sector. Further background experience includes corporate buildings, interiors and school buildings. The practice will also undertake outline landscape designs in connection with its architectural projects, which often demonstrate a strong bond between the two disciplines.
Each project is developed as a three dimensional model from its concept stage and considerable resources have been dedicated to developing effective in-house 2D/3D CAD capability, which has been developed further to conform to Building Information Modelling (BIM) workflow. This 3D design approach, does not only allow the Architect and the Client a better understanding of the design, but results in a comprehensive set of drawings linked to the 3D model, as well as producing 3D presentation (CGI) images. BIM workflow has enabled the practice to take on projects that are normally associated with larger practices.
The practice is able to network with and draw on the resources of another local architectural practice when required and this relationship has resulted in collaboration in connection with the school projects shown in the Portfolio section of this website. Geirsson Design Ltd. also has networking links with a prestigious Interior Design firm with offices in London and Lymington and this resource can be promoted in connection with specific projects.
In the past few years, resources have been allocated to identifying potential development sites in and around the New Forest, and many of these sites have actively been promoted to local property developers.
