RLM Associates

Architectural Consultancy

During the last fourteen years Robert has been self-employed running a small but busy Architectural Consultancy, based originally in Buxton - Robert is now based in his home town of Leek, covering a wide area across Cheshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire.

The services provided are wide and varied covering all aspects of Architecture, Planning and Surveying disciplines. Robert operates in conjunction with fellow professionals as the need arises to offer clients an holistic approach/service tailored to their individual needs. Clients vary from individual domestic clients to Property Developers, Commercial concerns and Solicitors, several of which he has close and loyal ties with - the client lists give some insight into his past and present client base and the geographical location of projects - distance being no object.

The service offered to several of the larger clients who develop sites for domestic use includes project co-ordination and close liaison on site with both domestic and nominated sub-contractors. This also includes certification of valuations for financial draw downs and completion certificates compliant with the Council of Mortgage Lenders requirements. Projects undertaken include the complete re-development of the former Normanton School site in Buxton into 19 Luxury Apartments & the re-development of the former Tarmac offices in Buxton into 9 Luxury Apartments. New developments include 10 Houses in Waterhouses, 3 Houses in Brassington, 5 Houses in Kniveton, 14 Houses in Buxton and many more residential developments including one off houses and numerous domestic extensions/alterations for private individuals.

Other work includes commercial and industrial commissions in the retail and warehouse sector as well as mixed use developments of older properties, bringing them back in to viable use. Much of Robert's work over the last 18 years has involved the conversion of large former residential properties in Buxton and surrounding areas into high quality apartments, dealing with all of the complexities that they have. A recent project involved the redevelopment of a Grade II listed commercial premises in Leek into six apartments and two shop units. Many commissions now involve work to Grade II Listed buildings and others of architectural merit and Robert has received two Certificates of Merit Awards from the Leek and District Civic Society for two local projects.

Recently Robert has undertaken the design of a large number of one off houses and barn conversions for individual clients and has been heavily involved with certification for both valuations and mortgage purposes. Being a member of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors RLM Associates currently have Professional Indemnity Insurance and are able to enter into Collateral Warranty Agreements with Funders and Clients alike.

As well as the above Robert is involved with expert witness reports, dilapidation reports, party wall awards, boundary disputes and other one off commissions from Solicitors and Developers, etc. He is an active member of a Local Authority Planning & Development Control Agents Forum. Recent courses attended have been the RICS/SPAB Conservation Summer School and SPAB Faith in Maintenance to learn more about the care and maintenance of Historic Buildings. Robert has recently also attended a UKAS accredited asbestos awareness course.
