Alexander Scott was created with the idea of forging new ground in the way buildings and other structures are designed and built.
From the outset, we have sought to combine the best ideas in management with a broad view of design and a construction led approach.
In order to address the limitations and narrow perspective of the specialist, our practice has embarked on a journey from a conventional structural design background to truly integrated and innovative design and construction.
Our decision to question the accepted beliefs of the established professions has generated fresh thinking on a wide range of issues - foremost amongst these is a dramatic widening of the skills of the designer and a thirst for knowledge beyond the accepted limits of conventional technical disciplines. This has resulted in a steady improvement of design and construction techniques and the generation of innovative and cost saving ideas.
In short, we challenge assumptions, test and often reject the status quo and innovate when we feel we cannot accept existing solutions or methods, or equally where none exist.
As a result of our broad approach to design and our concentration on the importance of problem-solving skills we operate across several sectors of the construction industry and as a practice we cover a wide technical range, including:
- Traditional and historic buildings
- Domestic architecture
- Services to specialist steel frame contractors
- Design support to timber frame and roof specialist contractors
- Industrial development
- The leisure and tourism sector
- Services to support main contractors
- The hotel sector
- Retail development
- Services to housing developers
- Design of unique structures for highly specific applications
