Adding Value Through Good Design

We believe that Good Design will Add Value to your project. By considering opportunities to enhance the quality of the design the benefits will provide reward over the long-term. Positive user experience, low maintenance, beautiful buildings do not have to cost more.

We are a limited company with 100% of shares held in trust for the benefit of all employees. Employee ownership supports a collaborative working culture that ensures the long term stability of the company.

Led by directors Paul Beaty-Pownall and Steve Cowell, who together provide support to our expert team of architects and technologists, we are committed to delivering the highest quality service to our clients.

Our business continues to grow organically, and through high profile commissions, we have become an influential partner in UK architecture.

Building Information Management

BPR were early adopters of BIM Technologies setting up practice wide systems from 2012. We now make use of BIM Systems to BIM Level 2 for all our projects.

BPR are also thought leaders in the application of BIM in our sector and have contributed to the debate through a number of speaking opportunities, webinars, expert panels and articles including:

  • Vectorworks Annual Summit, Baltimore USA - Paul Beaty-Pownall was invited as the key note speaker for their annual conference
  • Building magazine - BPR have taken part in several round table discussions for Building Magazine
  • BIM webinar series - BPR have delivered a number of webinars to support architects through their transition to BIM

The BPR Story

BPR began as a family business that today maintains family values in a young, dynamic professional environment. We support each other in developing our careers whilst challenging ourselves to reach beyond our comfort zone.

We are able to combine the knowledge that comes with 40 years of practice, with being a young enthusiastic team of designers. Offering the best of both worlds.

The practice started in 1975 with a focus on high quality bespoke house designs serving individual clients. Our family culture still lies at the heart of our business, supporting our dedicated team of technical staff who are committed to building a strong, long term relationships with our clients.
