consultant team

Giles Arthur Architects has developed long standing working relationships with structural engineers, quantity surveyors, energy & sustainability consultants, chartered building surveyors, heritage consultants and other specialists who can be called upon as required by the nature of the project.

Giles Arthur Architects is working specialist consultant teams on several larger scale projects in the North East and the Borders, thereby allowing the practice’s experience to be brought to bear on some exciting, challenging projects.



Giles Arthur Architects offers a ‘no-obligation’ initial site visit and client consultation in order that we can demonstrate our commitment to the process from the very first meeting. Thereafter, structured, fixed-price fee quotations are prepared for consideration; clients can thereby be assured that the projected fee outlay is known from the outset.

No VAT is payable on architectural fees.
