About Us

Over the last 20 years, we have worked on over 1,500 projects and have the know-how and experience to create a unique solution for your architectural project.

Most of our commercial clients and residential property clients have never undertaken a building project before, but rest assured we will hold your hand throughout the process. We take a flexible, friendly approach and work closely with you to deliver architectural solutions that you will love.

You may not know what is possible to achieve with the space you have or the budget you have set, but we pride ourselves on finding out what you want to achieve and exceeding your expectations.

Why not give us a call for an informal chat about your commercial or residential architectural design requirements?

Your initial consultation is always in confidence and at our expense with no obligation to continue, you have nothing to lose so why not call or email us?

As specialists in gaining planning approvals for a wide variety of commercial architectural projects and residential building designs, we have established excellent working relationships with local planning authorities. We will only present designs we believe are capable of gaining planning approval, using our experience and knowledge of local planning guidance we have enjoyed a near perfect success rate.

bi Design offers a straightforward and fresh approach to residential and commercial architecture alike. We quote for every project based on the time taken to deliver the right design solution, therefore each quote is bespoke, like our clients and our designs.
