Commercial Architects Practice - Graham Handley Architects

We are an award winning chartered architects practice based near Cambridge. We are creative, collaborative and responsive.

As an RIBA Chartered Practice with over 30 years commercial and residential architecture experience we understand how to help you get the most from your project. We are particularly adept at developing one-off architectural design solutions to deal with constrained or sensitive sites. We will help you focus on opportunities rather than dwell on difficulties!

From the early beginnings of a project - even before a site is acquired - through to handing over a completed building we act as development consultants to provide a comprehensive service. Our architecture services are always tailored to your specific needs.

For commercial architecture projects we undertake site appraisals, feasibility studies, planning applications, architectural design, construction drawings, project management, interior design and contract administration. We have built up a network of good local contacts and can help you put together a team of professionals to ensure your project will run smoothly. Our considerable experience of negotiating with local planning authorities means that, whatever the nature of your project, we are highly adept at maximising your chances of gaining planning approval.

Our commercial architecture experience has encompassed offices, retail shops, restaurants, hotel and leisure facilities, laboratories and warehousing. Our client base ranges from a food testing sensory laboratory to an optometrists' practice. We particularly enjoy working with a building’s end-users to understand your processes and develop an architectural design that not only meets your requirements but helps you do your job better and maximises your investment.

Above all, we listen. Your priorities are our priorities.
