Approach

Peak Architects are a design led practice. We believe the success of any project is in exceeding the aspirations of our clients whist considering the external influences that may impact upon a project (cost, programme, planning and site constraints).

Central to ‘our approach’ are the following principles, which we apply to all projects and at all stages of the process:

Collaboration  The success of any project is the quality of the team and its collective approach; we will guide, motivate and control this group from start to finish.

Client Consultation  Central to each project is the client, through continuous dialogue we will articulate the client’s vision and exceed their aspirations.

Design  Good design is central to the role of the architect, it must inspire but it need not take more money or time or be attention seeking.

Affordability  Determining budgetary constraints at the outset of the project is important, working within this budget and controlling cash flow are essential.

Integrity  We act in a professional manner; treating all parties with the courtesy and respect expected…engendering ‘trust’.

Deliverability  Understanding materials and applying good detailing are essential in the delivery of high quality buildings.

Pro-active  We are pro-active not reactive; we encourage a ‘can do’ attitude.

Sustainability  Sustainability is an integral part of good architecture; we aim to design buildings that are best prepared for future changes whilst considering their impacts from inception and construction to operation and beyond.

Knowledge  We are committed to best practice through continued learning.

Flexibility  Flexibility in use and ease of potential adaptation in the future are key considerations in the design of all of our projects
