NWD is a team of architects, architectural technologists, Designers, Principal Designer and a certified Passivhaus Designer 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 that they not only look fantastic and sit harmoniously within their setting, but also perform perfectly in their role after being constructed to the highest standard.

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

Our team has over 120 years of combined experience 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 a myriad of 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 recommend a number of skilled professionals to you.
