Robert Davies John West Limited handles projects across the UK and overseas. Our services range from feasibility studies and appraisals, concept and design development, through procurement to final completion and in-use assessments.


We have a proven track record for the successful delivery of a very diverse range of projects that includes institutional, commercial and private work from refurbishment and extensions to listed buildings to retail and commercial developments. We are involved in a number of projects in the developing world where we bring our expertise in appropriate technologies and community participation to the fore.


The continued success of the company relies not only on providing services that fulfill our clients requirements, both on time and to budget, but ultimately in the creation of architecture of the highest integrity, drawing on both our design philosophy and the environmental issues that play an increasing part in all our lives.

All of our staff are professional and committed individuals, each bringing skills and experience that enable us to deliver a complete range of architectural services.


A huge welcome to Gareth Sewell MCIAT who has joined us from the BRE to lead BIM and head up the technical team and also to Olufunke Agboola (Architectural Technologist) to support Gareth.
