TENDERING - Two of our current projects have just received their tender offers. One of these tenders received two offers for a +£100,000 project that were within £140 of each other!!! Incredible tendering. Thus confirming that if quality and detailed information is supplied to the tenderers, then the subsequently priced tender will be all the more accurate.

MG Architects....committed to the environment

Our vision is for good design that minimises man's impact on the planet. We understand that sustainable architecture is vital to achieving a low-carbon economy. MG Architects are eco architects specialising in carbon neutral eco (ecological) architecture, eco building and sustainable design.

Recent Project - Environmentally friendly building for The Guide Association

For this building we utilised energy saving solutions with environmentally friendly and people safe materials, especially and specifically designed by MG Architects.

The dormitory is orientated east to west to capture the early morning sun, and to avoid facing the cold north. Specially designed projecting eaves prevent the hottest summer sun from entering the building through the windows The large overhangs also provide weather protection to the walling.

The double bank of windows enable the the lower section to be closed off at night whilst retaining the upper ones (higher for security reasons) open for natural ventilation. pictureThe slope of the roof will assist with this natural flow across the dormitory. All the finishes are environmentally friendly and are safe and simple to re-apply.

The rainwater pipe is formed from a chain. This creates an interesting feature of a normally mundane part of a building.
