About FKDA



1 (Manchester)


Below £100k to over £5m

FKDA are able to provide a range of architectural and interior design services, from the preparation of planning applications, to the full design and procurement of a building project.

With the ability to undertake projects in a number of different sectors, we strive on the diversity of the projects we have undertaken and continue to be involved with.

We can also carry out a variety of project sizes, from £50,000 to £15 million. These include house extensions, where a client may be looking for a more demanding solution to finding additional light and space, feasibility studies for complex mixed use developments, and complete new build projects where we can assist in managing the construction.

For each project, irrespective of its size, we develop strong working relationships with the client, other consultants and the building contractor. Through our professional approach to the design and construction process, we endeavour to deliver designs that are innovative yet functional, adding value to the ordinary.

Although there is often a demand from clients and their backers for a practice to be of a large size, we believe there are many strengths a small practice can provide, such as a real commitment to projects, the hands-on involvement of senior staff throughout the project, and the ability to be flexible and adaptable.
