Chris set up Water Lane Architects in 2011 to provide architectural design services for clients through all project stages. The practice works across East Anglia, with projects from Cambridge to Chelmsford, and with most projects being in north Essex, clustered around Colchester.
Drawing on 30 years' experience across many sectors - from residential to commercial, education to defence, leisure to industrial - Chris's specialism remains in ecological and low energy/ low carbon design.
Since setting up Water Lane Architects Chris has been a lecturer in concept design and a part time architectural tutor to architecture students at Anglia Ruskin University; the next generation of the profession.
Water Lane Architects' projects include new house design, large extension/ alteration schemes for private houses, and commercial schemes (offices, retail), as well as working for building contractors to provide technical design for design and build schemes. Project costs typically range from £50,000 to £2,000,000.
