Environment

E-ten Architects were founded with the specific purpose of providing energy efficient buildings through design rather than just technologies. This stems from a belief that energy efficient and environmentally sound architecture doesn”t have to cost more, it should encompass all aspects of the design, materials and methods of construction into a holistic solution. In the Practice operations too all staff recognise where possible, that environmental management of the business can provide a significant contribution to minimise our environmental impact. All members of staff are actively encouraged to offer new methods and ideas to improve the Practice operations and policy regarding its environmental responsibilities.

Quality

E-ten Architects are a registered RIBA Chartered Architects and as such are required to maintain quality management procedures. We have developed a system to meet the BS EN ISO 9001: 2000 certification, an important recognition for quality that is supported by the Government and recognised worldwide. In undertaking the quality management procedures we are able to ensure our clients aspirations and expectations are met with the aim of achieving client satisfaction.

The Quality Management System incorporated within the Practice procedures includes all aspects specific to processes of design, project management and contract administration. Our aim is to ensure these processes are clearly identified, regularly monitored and recorded, and remain effective.

Design

Our aim is to offer creative solutions suitable of responding to the project budget, site constraints and the brief. While we seek to create buildings that minimise energy consumption in both construction and occupation we remain acutely aware that some projects have limitations to the extent this can be achieved. The optimum solution is always sought, marrying elegant and stimulating design to the client”s aspirations, budgets and constraints of existing buildings.

The aim of the practice is to create a sense of enjoyment in the work we undertake for both the employees and clients. Creating buildings that will last for generations should be reached through the joy of the creative will, collaboration and passion to create beautiful spaces and objects. Buildings to be used and enjoyed while interacting positively to the surroundings and environment.
