Harper Sperring was established in 1949 and has since developed a strong reputation for high standards and attention to detail not only during the design stages, but also in the contract stages. This ensures a greater quality finish of works completed on site for our clients to enjoy.
We’ve developed a wealth of design and management knowledge during the practice’s lifetime, which has been passed on and enhanced through it’s succession of Partners. Our current Principal, Paul Rees has worked at Harper Sperring since early 1999, joining shortly before qualifying as an Architect and registering as a Chartered Architect.
Firstly, we’re registered with ARB (the Architect’s Registration Board) and as such we adhere to their ‘Architects Code: Standards of Conduct and Practice’. Secondly, we’re a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Chartered Practice and our proposals are aligned with the RIBA Plan of Work 2013. Along with our experience, this plan provides a clear sequential process which regularly minimises costs and time.
Our commitment is to provide the optimum solution to our client’s needs with well thought through imaginative designs and carefully detailed information. This minimises confusion on site and ensures a smoother construction process, reducing stress for all involved.
Your project is important to us and we approach every project with the same level of enthusiasm and commitment, irrespective of whether it’s a refurbishment, extension or new build; for a small or large project, in any sector. We understand that your project is important to you and we enjoy sharing in that excitement along the way. We know that bad design and construction can be detrimental to the value of your property as well as your quality of life.
Most projects require more than preparing drawings for planning and building regulation applications, as there are a lot of other regulations to comply with, that aren’t widely known. We’ve learnt the success of every project lies within the client appointing the right design team and following the right path. That’s why we always advise potential clients to ensure they’re appointing the appropriately experienced and qualified people on their project.
