Kevin Balch

Kevin acts as a project lead on a range of projects – from small design-led listed building extensions to large multi-consultant teams on projects with a build cost ranging from £70k to £12m.

Over the years, he has built up considerable skills in dealing with the complexities of briefs for clients who may not necessarily have got projects off the ground before. Many of these projects have involved sensitive planning and listed building permissions; building large extensions within the protected greenbelt zones or major alterations to Grade II and Grade I listed structures.

Because of the bespoke design nature of most commissions, many of Kevin’s projects involve the full RIBA workstages from inception to completion, where clients particularly value the quality of the built design.

He is interested in innovative solutions to complex problems, understanding how we can do more for less and procuring responsible architecture that is a delight to inhabit or pass through. A key aspect of this is understanding what clients actually require and then making it happen.

Kevin is comfortable conveying ideas through hand sketches but equally capable with the major software packages, with a keen interest in photography and digital manipulation.
