Alexander & Thomas Architects was established in 1992. As a practice we are committed to the highest standards of design, providing places which are both delightful and highly practical. All projects are developed uniquely from two key generators: The brief reflecting the clients requirements and the site itself.
Alexander and Thomas Architects have consistently used innovative construction techniques, from designing entirely new bathroom / wardrobe pod units for compact student bedrooms, to new timber frame technologies for housing. We have developed low cost robust high insulation strategies and energy saving lighting.
Alexander & Thomas Architects is an equal partnership between Hugh Alexander and Sioned Thomas. A & TA also collaborate with other Architects under an innovative office sharing arrangement which has been the subject of several seminars and lectures.
As a practice we have worked with numerous community groups and on community based schemes which have involved high levels of consultation and design development alongside residents, users, staff and other involved parties.
Alexander & Thomas have previously carried out works for Housing Associations and a major rebuilding programme at the University of Bath. We have extensive experience of working with Listed Buildings and a wide variety of construction techniques with an emphasis on green technology and energy saving building methods. Designs have been produced for thermal mass projects making use of solar gain as well as innovative large section timber frame buildings.
We have also carried out a number of improvement projects for individual householders with the assistance of Renovation Grants and Disabled Facilities Grants. They have involved working with Local Councils as well as bodies such as SureStart, Care & Repair, Homewise, Single Mothers Group, Asian Health and Social Care Association and others. Alexander & Thomas are an approved agent for Bristol City Council funded works.
The practice has produced numerous feasibility studies leading to funding and construction of projects as well as expert reports, surveys, inspections, maintenance audits, claims assessment and other construction related documentation. We are also able to provide a project management facility.
