Healthcare Architectural Services


Residential Architectural Services


Mixed Use Architectural Services

We have extensive experience in designing leading-edge facilities and a deep understanding of the challenges involved in complex phased refurbishments. We can draw on our knowledge of the latest developments and advances within the healthcare field to ensure the highest quality results through all stages of a project’s development from concept, briefing, design development, construction, and post-occupancy.

Our human-centred approach to architecture, landscape, and interior design combined with detailed clinical planning has led to the successful delivery of healthcare spaces that improve patient dignity and well-being, whilst increasing staff satisfaction, productivity, and long-term viability.

Our specialist team of healthcare and dental architects:

  • Design high-quality environments for patients, staff and visitors within very tight financial constraints.
  • Demonstrate in-depth understanding of patients, medical practitioners, visitors and wider public needs and requirements and the ability to translate this into the design of our healthcare projects.
  • Incorporate sustainable design principles into projects to minimise environmental impact and promote energy efficiency.
  • Bring construction management experience, resulting in an in-depth understanding of both the architect's and contractor’s perspective in terms of delivering a building project, ensuring a painless delivery process for end users, project managers and estate teams.
  • Offer flexibility in approach to various building types including conversion of existing buildings such as former retail spaces, with the ability to transform these into specialised medical facilities (Meditail).
  • Bring an understanding of a range of environmental conditions that can have powerful healing and calming benefits, including environmental control, natural light, colour, views, artwork, aroma, sound, texture and materials.

As experts in residential design, our wide-ranging work spans new-build houses to retrofit and refurbishment of historic listed buildings, with a focus on delivering a smooth client experience through all stages of the project from design and planning to delivery.

We aim to facilitate and guide clients on their journey:

  • At the earliest stages of each project, we spend time with our clients, listening to their aims, objectives and aspirations - and their budget expectations.
  • At the concept stage, we work closely with our clients to understand their vision and requirements to create a bespoke design brief and budget programme.
  • Bringing their vision to life is facilitated by drafting initial sketches, drawings and creating 3D models.
  • At the planning stage we oversee the design development process and create detailed drawings, maintaining regular communication with local authority planners and inspectors. Many of our projects involve the conversion, extension and conservation of Historic and Listed Buildings, which our specialist team can navigate on our client’s behalf.
  • On-site, when required, we manage and coordinate the build’s design team, suppliers & specialist subcontractors to ensure smooth delivery.
  • Upon completion, we conduct final inspections to guarantee quality standards and liaise with the design team and contractors to provide all certifications required for a timely handover.
  • Using our creativity, innovation and problem-solving skills we will add tangible value while achieving, and in most cases surpassing, our client’s expectations

Successful commercial projects require a clear initial understanding of the client’s brief, business goals, future growth plans and long-term sustainability objectives. With this information in mind, we tailor our project delivery strategy to embrace all architectural and interior design services including development appraisals, feasibility studies, planning applications and interior design product procurement.

We are experienced in undertaking full design and build strategies, including:

  • Working closely with clients to understand their vision and requirements.
  • Overseeing the design development process, and ensuring that all project specifications align with building codes and regulations while meeting client expectations.
  • Bringing a commitment to delivering sustainable and retrofit design solutions where possible.
  • Collaborating and coordinating with stakeholders such as contractors, engineers, and suppliers during construction to ensure smooth delivery.
  • Conducting final inspections to guarantee quality standards before handing over the project.
  • The broad range of commercial projects we have completed includes an office development in a historic area of Glasgow involving a sensitive and thoughtful restoration of an A-listed townhouse combined with careful strategic alterations to create flexible working spaces. We have provided full architectural services support for several restaurant chains.
  • We have a passion for designing buildings with community engagement at their heart, which is a joy to live, work and socialise.
  • Identify and design to suit the ongoing shift to a low-carbon economy and work beyond the legislative and regulatory minimums to future-proof investments.
  • Develop a highly contextual solution within existing site boundaries to create architecture that is respectful to existing historic buildings while also recognising the wider, evolving urban landscape.
  • Deliver the best value to clients through a clear understanding and extensive experience in construction management and providing the necessary detailed drawn information required to achieve quality, seamlessly on site.
  • NVDC can demonstrate a wide experience in designing mixed-use developments within complex site constraints requiring special attention and forethought with method statements, sequencing of work, and fall-back positions, detailed in advance of any work.
