Testimonials

The books are fantastic. I wish I’d bought them sooner. There really is a lack of literature regarding architectural detailing in the uk but thankfully I found these books. They are the perfect resouce for any architecture student. They give a great overview of materials and importantly state the underlying principles of detailing with clearly explained details.

Phil - Architecture Student

I don’t think I have ever seen such a comprehensive resource and clear cut explanation for architectural details!
I wish you the best of luck and look forward to seeing your future work, the 3d models are top notch and critical in spatially understanding the construction methods.

Alex- Architectural Technologist

I have to say it is a really great resource and reference guide, and is very well put together. The sections at the front of the book (Functional Requirements) is particularly useful, and has joined the small collection of architectural and construction guides/handbooks that I refer to when I need my memory jogged or details/specifications clarified.
All of the drawings and details are well put together, clear and concise. Again a great reference.

Matt - Architect

I have found the residential book extremely useful , I was recommended it by a tutor for a module I was doing and this was just before I started work in practice so it gave me a head start for my new job getting to see all similar details from your book in real life situations. Thank you!

George - 3rd Year Student
