Allan Corfield Architects Ltd
Since 2009 ACA have been helping self-builders design and build their dream homes. As an RIBA Chartered Practice, we have worked on over 450 projects across the UK, including small extensions, one-off homes and large housing developments.
Our designs are all low energy, built around the Fabric first approach. We use modern methods of construction such as Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) and Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF). We are also Certified Passive House Designers.
Based in Fife and Swindon, our gifted team of 15 are led by Architect and self-build expert Allan Corfield. As well as running ACA, Allan also speaks and writes for Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine – giving talks across the UK on low energy homes.
ACA will guide you through the entire process; from the initial design to obtaining Planning & Building Regs approval and then onto the site. We offer a free initial consultation and plot review service, before providing a fixed cost Fee Proposal.
What differentiates ACA from other Architectural practices is our commitment to education. Over the past 4 years through our blog we have helped educate and support thousands of soon-to-be self-builders.
ACA have been shortlisted for numerous awards, including best architect, best eco home and recently one of our homes was awarded Best SIPS Home at the BuildIt Awards 2018.
Alan Corfield recently created AC Structures, a leading engineering business, providing engineering support for all of ACA’s clients.
ACA and ACS teams are delighted to be exhibiting at the NEC and will be on hand at stand J133 to answer any questions and demo their state of the art Virtual Reality system.
