Staffordshire architects’ £5,000 birthday giveaway

Staffordshire based Croft Architecture is celebrating its fifth birthday by offering the chance to win £5,000 worth of architectural services. 

The giveaway could see fees wiped out completely on a job such as a home extension or amount to a major saving on larger projects. 

Managing Director Carl Croft founded the Staffordshire Technology Park based practice in January 2009. 

“The competition is open to all from householders to large developers,” said Carl. “All people have to do is register and a winner will be chosen at random on our birthday – January 29, 2014. 

“We are encouraging people to use social media to tell us what they would spend the £5,000 saving on. For example, the money would buy a nice fitted kitchen for a house extension.” 

Carl, of Meir Heath, took on his own practice at the age of 29 and has worked on a diverse range of projects from house extensions to schools and a prestigious elderly care village on the waterfront at Weymouth. 

Successful Staffordshire developments from Croft Architecture include a major redevelopment of the observatory at Keele University, a major refurbishment of the maternity ward at Queens Hospital, Burton, and a replacement for Heathfield pre-school at Tamworth. 

“While the primary purpose is to celebrate our birthday, we’d like to think the competition will ignite interest in the role of a chartered architect. It is not just about measuring and drawing a plan but about visualising the best possible use of the development space taking into account realities such as the need to gain planning consent and work within a budget,“explained Carl.
