Integrated Architecture is a new practice created through the merging of two well-established practices, Heath Avery Architects and Astam.
The new company draws on the complementary skillsets and professional qualifications of both companies in order to provide all aspects of the architectural design and professional construction service under one roof. These services include: architectural design, structural engineering, mechanical and electrical engineering and cost consultancy.
Integrated Architecture was specifically conceived to provide customers with an architecturally-led approach to construction design and engineering based on the industry best practices outlined in the government’s BIM framework (Building Information Modelling). The BIM framework, which comes into force in April 2016, stipulates that all public sector construction projects adopt sophisticated Building Information Modelling (BIM) technologies, processes and collaborative behaviours in order to drive up the efficiency of projects and promote industry best practice. By adopting BIM Level II into the new practice, Integrated Architecture can bring the best practices of large-scale public sector projects to all customers, irrespective of their size or sector.
Our core sectors are care and education but we also have a track record in residential and commercial projects.
Integrated Architecture is a architecturally led multi-disciplinary practice which has been created through the merging of two well-established local practices, Heath Avery Architects and Astam. The new company aims to provide customers with a range of architectural disciplines in-house, eliminating the additional cost, risk and inconvenience of engaging with multiple suppliers. We also adhere to BIM Level II compliance in order to deliver industry best practice for all clients on all projects.
In-house disciplines include:
- Architectural Design (RIBA architects)
- Conservation Architecture
- Quantity Surveying
- Mechanical, Electrical and Public Health
- Structural Engineering
