NWD is a team of architects, architectural assistants and technologists located in Kelsall, just east of Chester. We typically work across Chester, Cheshire, Wirral and North Wales. We also serve clients nationally and occasionally internationally.

We have an excellent set of design and technical skills that we apply to both existing and new buildings. This ensures they not only look fantastic and sit harmoniously within their setting, but also perform their role excellently and are constructed and perform to the highest of standards.

We work for residential clients, independent businesses, national chains and provide ongoing services to numerous private estates.


Our Approach

We have a broad range of experience and always use it to its fullest. From an initial free consultation, your project will be headed up by a director in the business, who will continue to oversee it until the completion of works.

We can tailor our approach and how we work with you depending on whether you are an experienced operator/ developer or are extending a house for the first time. Our services will also be tailored to your needs and budget accordingly.

We will fully explain the process relevant to your scheme. We will identify critical items or targets, and will identify additional resources that will be necessary to achieve your goals.

Listening is key. We have a great deal of knowledge and experience and will always use it to guide you, but we are not led by our egos. We respect the fact that the project is yours and that you will always be more committed and invested in it than we can be. We will always listen to your ideas and aspirations and design to your brief.


Progressing A Project

A director and, where appropriate, other members of our team, will sit with you and discuss your project in great detail. We will identify critical information, such as design requirements, scope of works and budget. We will then formulate a project brief and from that will work up a project plan. The project plan will identify our scope of works and associated fees for each stage of the RBA plan of work. Complementary services, such as tender and contract administration, project management and Principal Designer will also be covered and all will be detailed in the agreement we provide to you.

Each and every project remains the responsibility of one of the directors. They, and other members of staff that will be involved in the project, will deal directly with you and are always available to contact. A successful project is reliant on excellent communication between all parties and we always prioritise this and are proud of the reputation we have with existing clients.

We have over 120 years of combined experience in the office and we utilise all of this through the various stages of concept design, planning approval, building control approval and construction. We are also experienced in dealing with myriad consultants who are often necessary on projects. Should you have consultants in mind, the chances are we will already have relationships with them. If you do not, then we can suggest plenty of consultants for your consideration that we have had good experiences with previously.


Our Office

Architect Office interior.jpg

The office was created 40 years ago and has operated out of the same building in Kelsall ever since. We have always provided services to a range of sectors and continue to do so.


NWD is located within a large single workspace which means that all members are aware of all projects and can keep abreast of things as they develop. We are an open office and operate as such. We discuss projects openly, which keeps members informed and also provokes conversation. This allows ideas to be bounced around and frequently improves the result of our designs.

We enjoy the range and scale of clients we have. Our door is always open during office hours and we are happy to welcome new visitors to discuss your aspirations and see how we work.
