Build 2018 Architecture Awards 16 ased in Cumbria, Chetham Architecture Design is registered with both the Architects Registration Board and the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists. The company specialises in bespoke extensions, conversions and alterations to existing buildings throughout Cumbria and Lancashire. Brimming with expertise, CAD can provide the full-range of architectural services from conception through to completion, and Tim Chetham makes sure himself that clients are kept up-to-date throughout the whole process, operating with transparency and integrity. Versatile and adaptable, the firm’s offerings include Building Surveys, Planning Applications, Listed Building Consent, Building Regulations Approval and Contract Administration. Adopting a personal approach to each individual case, Tim guides the clients through each stage of the building process, ensuring that customers’ expectations are constantly exceeded. Due to vast array of services that the firm offers, CAD’s projects range from barn conversions and renovations of historic buildings, to updating 1980’s bungalows, showing Tim’s adaptability, however, many projects are domestic extensions, on a tight budget. Tim told us how it feels to have been selected as the Best Architectural Design Practice 2018 in North West England, and also for working on the Best Cumbrian Residential Extension Project, Rawe Cottage. “Honestly, it is nice to receive recognition for this type of work, which is often in the shadow of the larger and more glamorous projects featured in the architectural press. However, good design at this scale can make a real difference to both the occupants and the wider environment.” Evaluating the projects that he has undertaken since CAD was established, Tim tells us about two renovation projects that he is currently working on, and why they are interesting, particularly from the view of an architect. “Currently, the architecture firm is involved with several renovation projects, including two 17th Century Farmhouses, and this is important to Tim, as historic properties such as these have often had many inappropriate alterations over the years, most of which need to be remedied. This can range from poor quality materials, which are damaging the existing fabric of the building, to the ‘stylistic’ errors of the time.” Making sure he always manages to reach the right result, Tim is careful that he is sympathetic to the historic nature of the property and setting, whilst making them suitable for modern living. In the cases of the projects Best Architectural Design Practice 2018 – North West England & Best Cumbrian Residential Extension Project: Rawe Cottage Chetham Architecture Design (CAD) is a small architectural practice, located on the edge of the Lake District National Park, between Kendal and Lancaster. WE profiled the firm as we go behind the scenes to find out more about the company’s ongoing success and current projects.
