When you appoint an RIBA Chartered architect you are employing someone who has undertaken seven years of training - no other building professional is trained in design and construction to such a level of expertise.
An architect will help you achieve your aspirations and vision, and add value to your project through good design and sound construction management. As an RIBA Chartered Architect I can help you realise your objectives and guide you through the design and construction process. I will handle the paperwork and bring value for money, peace of mind and imagination to your project, while keeping it on track. Please see my Price List for modest extensions, garden rooms, loft conversions etc.
The practice offers a comprehensive architecture, interior design and masterplanning service across a wide range of commercial and specific non-commercial sectors. A full interior design service can be integrated into an overall architectural commission or can be provided as a separate specialist service. Our scope of service on any project can be tailored as necessary from a full traditional architectural service with overall management responsibility, to a partial service to suit the particular circumstances and client requirements.
Planning advice and masterplanning experience covers major strategic sites of regional importance, down to development sites simply accommodating a number of individual buildings and associated infrastructure. We are equally capable at producing attractive and commercially viable masterplanning solutions for green/brownfield out of town locations or town centre locations with their unique constraints and challenges.
The Bunting Partnership was formed in 2012 and is run by myself Catherine Bunting. I qualified as a Chartered Architect in 1988 and was a Director of Banister Storr Associates, Architects and Planning Consultants, before joining The Ratcliff Partnership in 1998 as an Associate Director. My design experience covers a diverse area of expertise including private residential, sheltered housing developments (including special needs accommodation), educational, retail, hotel, office, military and residential interior design as well as refurbishment projects. My practice, whilst based in Cheshire, operates throughout the North-West. I am committed to achieving buildable and cost effective solutions and I am alert to opportunities to deliver 'added value' whether that be via efficient planning/space use, material selection or buildability and any associated programme benefits. My practice is an RIBA Chartered Practice with £1M Professional Indemnity Insurance cover. I can undertake projects ranging from small domestic schemes, through one-off houses up to large commercial projects.Get in Touch!
