Case Studies

Barn conversion

This project is currently being constructed and will see a Dutch Barn converted into a new dwelling. The steel frame and blockwork infill walls will be wrapped in timber cladding. The glazed areas of the façade maximise the views from this property.
We have provided a full range of Architectural services including initial sketch schemes, planning and building regulation packages and continued support to the client throughout the build.

Commercial property extension

David James were instructed to design an extension to an existing commercial property to enable the existing client to continue to grow on site. As well as designing the extension we also provided full planning and building regulation packages for the client.

Private commercial client

Powersystems UK Ltd commissioned DJP to undertake the role of lead Design Consultant, Contract Administrator and Quantity Surveyor to overhaul and extend their headquarters in Yate. A first floor extension was constructed creating new open plan and individual offices along with a gym and changing room. The existing first floor office was then redesigned to create a new reception and entrance area. Extra car parking was also created. The office remained operational throughout.

Private dwelling

David James and partners were approached, and instructed to help create a new home for one of our clients. As well as designing this distinctive dwelling, we also took care of the planning and building regulation requirements. Our in house design team are able to provide a full range of Architectural Services to suit the clients' individual needs.
