traditional service…. contemporary design

Wylie Shanks as Chartered Architects provide an architectural design service covering all building types.  It is a medium sized practice employing architects, architectural support staff, and administrative personnel. The practice provides services throughout Scotland from its offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh, offering added value through innovation and quality of service.

The firm has successfully executed a very large and varied range of commissions since formation of the original partnership in 1912, from small building jobs to multi-million pound major developments, with particular strengths in conservation, industrial, healthcare, education, commercial and residential sectors.  The many awards that the practice has gained demonstrate its design skills, and these skills are applied to all commissions received.

Project management, space planning, computer aided design and full design team services are also provided.  Through its extensive experience the practice has developed a proven ability to render a sound architectural service on projects where cost and programme deadlines are of paramount importance.  Providing strong leadership to design  teams selected for appropriate skills or working within pre-selected teams, the practice offers a contemporary and pragmatic approach to projects and design solutions.  In providing a design, the aim is to produce architecture suited to its time and place, whilst being responsive to its site, context and use.

A combination of design skills and a proven record of preparing design and production information on many projects over a great number of years highlights the total professional capability of this practice.  We successfully combine contemporary design with traditional customer focussed service through the use of best and sustainable practice.

big enough to cope…. small enough to care
