Coronavirus update

Business (pretty much) as usual...

All our staff are working from home, but our emails and phone calls are still being answered. We are still making initial visits to site, following guidance issued by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Architects Registration Board (ARB). This allows our staff to enter private houses, so long as strict adherence to social distancing and mask wearing and careful sanitising are observed. This means we can still take bookings to visit properties to discuss proposed projects. We make these appointments free of charge, on weekdays, during daylight hours: do call or email to book an appointment if you’ve been thinking of a new building project. We look forward to hearing from you...

Duncan Clark & Beckett Ltd (DC&B) are a RIBA Chartered Architecture Practice located in central Colchester.

We were founded in 1908 and are probably the longest established practice in the region (with only a few changes of personnel!). We have many years’ experience working across all sectors of the built environment, with private clients, small developers, charities, schools, housing associations, on projects ranging in size from small domestic extensions to large commercial and housing schemes and new lifeboat stations.

We are a small design office offering clients a consistent, personalised service.
