Our services

Alongside a full architectural service, we offer a series of supporting services to help our clients  deliver their schemes successfully.

Principal Designer

  • We offer an in-house Health and Safety Service. Stephen Draper RIBA RMaPS is a qualified Principal Designer and Director at Willmore Iles Architects.
  • We understand the importance of safe working on ‘live sites’ and particularly the issues around campus environments.
  • The majority of contractor clients recognise the advantages of a coordinated design and CDCM function and choose to appoint the practice for the Principal Designer role.

Interior Design

  • We offer a full interior design service for schemes, working with specialist partners, to suit our clients needs.
  • We provide high quality, viable solutions that meet the whole-life costing requirements of a particular scheme.

Building Information Modelling & Management

  • We use Revit 3D Modelling software for all major projects, allowing collaborative working and integration across the disciplines as required.
  • We are working at BIM Level 2 with collaborative modelling on all of our major projects. We are seeing the integration of model outputs with pre-existing CAFM (computer aided facilities management) and asset management software.

  • Andrew Iles has a Masters in Town and Country Planning and takes practice responsibility for steering projects through the planning process.
  • The research undertaken for his master’s thesis ‘Maximising the benefits of masterplanning in higher education’ has proven valuable when integrating projects into the context of existing masterplans, helping institutions prepare residential masterplans and delivering beneficial consents for our clients and their institutional partners
