What an Asba architect can do for you

ASBA Architects are all locally-based independent practices who spend most of their time assisting clients like you. Apart from design skills they are also fully trained in building construction, project management and contract law, making them the ideal source of help and advice that is needed to make your project a success.

ASBA is a national network formed and run by locally-based chartered RIBA architects, who specialise in the design of one-off houses and domestic altercations. So if you are thinking of building your own home or improving the one that you already have, an ASBA architect can help you.

ASBA architects offer independent advice from experienced architects on all aspects of the design and construction of homes, including finding building plots and development opportunities, providing highly creative design, dealing with the planners and building control officers, and finding and managing building contractors.

You decided how much or little assistance you need. They can oversee your complete project, or just help at those times when you feel that you need professional support.

Maximum choice


There is a huge range of products and materials available in the UK. ASBA architects offer imaginative solutions, adapting house styles and construction methods to suit you. They can design any type of house, giving advice on the suitability of brick, stone, concrete block or timber construction for your project. They can also provide advice and information on the many exciting opportunities to customise your project and make it your own.

Designed around you

Your priorities and particular needs are the starting point as ASBA architects work with you to design your home to match your requirements aspirations and budget. Their creative ability will ensure that the fixtures, fittings and interiors that you choose reflect your personality and style. Using an ASBA architect gives you the opportunity to create a home as individual as yourself.

Working with you all the way


ASBA architects can act as an independent advisor at all stages of your project, whether you are buying land or paying contractors. Their aim is always to obtain you the best quality for the most competitive price. Unlike many designers and package companies, they do not take undeclared commissions from builders, suppliers or manufacturers for choosing their products or services, but instead, obtain competitive prices and pass any savings made on the build cost of your house directly to you.

Value for money

Good design by a skilled ASBA architect will mean your money is used to its best possible advantage. Effective project management means that competitive prices are always obtained from contractors. Simply ensuring that the process of inviting tenders is managed well can save you £10,000s when compared to inviting prices from builders without a proper set of drawings and specifications. The use of independent advice from a trustworthy source is not only cost-effective but also improves your chances of a problem-free project.

All ASBA Architects all have a particular interest and skills relating to the design and construction of homes, whether refurbishment, extension or new build.

Formed in 1992, the network is non-profit making and is run by its members who spend most of their professional time working with families who have not carried out a building project before. Because all the member practices are based in their own local area, they have extensive knowledge of the local authorities, other consultants who may be needed such as structural engineers and where to find the best building contractors.

To ensure a high standard of service and accountability, all member practices must have an architect in a senior position, who is also a member of the Royal Institute British Architects (i.e a chartered architect). They also have to demonstrate a track record of working on domestic projects and thorough experience of small scale alterations to private houses.
