Hi, I’m Mark Blood, an Architectural Designer with over 25 years experience in the Construction Industry. Qualified in both building construction and civil engineering, I established my own Architectural Design Company after having previously worked in both the private sector and in local authority.
I am an experienced and innovative designer, and also have a wealth of knowledge and experience in Town Planning and Building Regulation legislation and procedures, and submit well over 100 Planning and Building Regulation applications on behalf of my Clients each year.
I provide Clients with a professional, personal and competitive architectural design service for all types of building project, residential, commercial and industrial, with particular emphasis on small to medium-sized projects for new-build dwellings, residential conversions, home extensions and property renovations.
Whether you are designing your new dream home or extending and renovating your existing property, my wealth of knowledge and experience in Architectural Design, Town Planning and Building Regulations will ensure a successful and cost effective solution for your building project.
I offer a full and flexible range of design services covering all aspects of the project design from the initial idea and concept right through to the inception of the building works.
I have established an excellent reputation and working relationship with local authorities, property developers and industry professionals in the Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire and Leicestershire areas. I have previously partnered with both Derby City Council and South Derbyshire District Council under the Architect/Designer Partnership Scheme, and in 2007 I received the runner up award in the East Midlands LABC Built-in Quality Awards Scheme for Best Partnership with a Designer/Architect.
I have a long-standing and on-going working association with a select number of local industry professionals including reputable building companies and specialist consultants (structural engineers, planning consultants, land surveyors, energy assessors and health & safety consultants).
All of my design drawings are produced to the highest level of quality and accuracy using the latest industry standard CAD software.
Please note also that unlike many smaller architectural service providers, all of my design work and the services I provide are covered by comprehensive Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance policies.
