At our core are the values applied to all our projects and services we provide.
Corporate Architecture provides a range of architectural services on projects both large and small, commercial and residential, across the UK and abroad. Our team combines a mixture of age and experience with youth and innovation. From initial design through planning, building regulations, contract management and completion, we have the in-house skills and expertise to work with our clients in any specific area they need.
Corporate Architecture Limited was founded by Managing Director Malcolm Foulkes-Arnold in 1983 and after a merge in 1985 to form the Foulkes-Arnold & Weston Partnership, in 1994 began its current incarnation as Corporate Architecture Limited in, with Director Richard Coppock joining in 1996.
Since those early days, the practice has progressively expanded its client base, today enjoying a varied workload of projects, with an abundance of returning clients, demonstrating a high level of satisfaction as a result of the strong working relationships we achieve.
‘PrimeLife Ltd has worked with Corporate Architecture for circa 16 years and appointed them as Architect and lead consultant on developments ranging from £500k extensions, to £12m new care village developments. Throughout that time, the team has worked with us to understand our requirements and aspirations, as well as fundamental compliance and standards we must adhere to within our sector. Quality and deliverability, on time and on budget has been our mantra, and it has been a pleasure to work consistently with the same key individuals since first appointed many years ago. With more projects in the pipeline, we continue to mutually benefit from this relationship’. Simon Van Herrewege – Prime Life Limited
In 2013 Jason Edwards and Gemma Bell, two long standing members of the Corporate Architecture team became Associate Directors, with Jason forging strong client relationships and acting as lead consultant for a variety of projects in particular residential house building and Gemma taking the lead in managing client accounts and the business function as a whole.
In 2019 Charlie Drucquer was promoted to Associate Director and Umesh Mistry joined the team as an Associate Director. Both bring a wealth of experience through various sectors of the Construction Industry, with Charlie predominantly working within the Residential and Commercial Sectors and Umesh within Commercial, Hospitality, Retail, Sports and Leisure sectors.
Corporate Architecture has a low staff turnover, with staff of all levels actively contributing to projects. The company continues to nurture young people through its apprenticeship scheme, which has seen the company proudly awarded Apprentice Employer of the year in 2016 and current member of staff, Jack Geary, gaining the prestigious Student of the year award in 2014.
Jack has since progressed his education achieving a First Class Honours in 2019 in BSc (Hons) Construction Management at Demontfort University and is continuing to further his role as a key member of the team at Corporate Architecture.
Currently, three members of staff are training as Apprentices and studying at college; Harvey Lloyd, Dotty Harriman and Thornton Bennett-Wilkinson. To date more than 18 young people have gone through the company apprenticeship scheme.
