David Cox Architects provides architectural design services.
We “use our imagination and experience to add value to sites and buildings” through the planning and design processes, and the construction stage. The team works across the housing, community and commercial sectors and creates designs which extend beyond the ordinary.
Our mantra for this year is
David Cox Architects places a continued focus on fostering teamwork and the wellbeing (mental and physical) of our employees by supporting each other throughout our working lives.
From a client perspective, we believe the client is the most important member of the design team and we are passionate about creating a personal service with a dedicated focus on their needs.
We work in partnership with a network of local businesses who we recommend based on previous relationships, track record, “zero-harm” H&S mission and shared goals to deliver exceptional quality. By bringing local business into the process, we contribute to the skills and employment opportunities fostered in the City.
Our environmental targets include zero environmental incidents, maintaining a “fabric-first” approach on schemes, analysing our long-term approach to meet net zero carbon and continuing our pledge to the UK-wide initiative “Architects Declare”.
During the initial stages of a project, we obtain the brief from the client for the project. We have introduced a sustainability questionnaire to understand and challenge a client’s environmental desires for their project. This promotes the client to engage with environmental issues from the start and encourage sustainable design.
David Cox Architects are focused on promoting good design across the industry and place an emphasis on raising design standards across the region.
We have been proactively developing the business with existing clients and have been targeting schemes located outside our usual North West boundary to allow for a broader geographical area.
We are passionate about inspiring the next generation of architects. We achieve this by attending school careers events, by offering student work experience placements and by tutoring at local Universities.
Private residential client:
I’ve dealt with lots of architects throughout my career and DCA blows other architects out of the water.
DCA is a very professional set-up. They have good wider knowledge and want to create the best solution. It’s not a copy and paste design, or a standard approach.
