DB Design & Draughting
Working alongside Regency Home Designs Ltd and Incorporated on 19th July 2007, DB Design & Draughting Ltd is our architectural partner. Prior to establishing the company, the Director, David Barratt, graduated from Northumbria University with a Bachelors Honours Degree in Construction Management and spent 10 years employed by civil engineering design consultants, including Haskoning, Jacobs and Waterman Aspen. Whilst seconded to WSP from Waterman David formed DB Design & Draughting and spent 12 months contracted to WSP working on predominantly highways and drainage design for a number of residential and commercial projects.
In July 2008 the opportunity arose to be involved in the New Tyne Crossing Project. David took on a roll on site in the methods department for Bouygues TP, the main contractor. Having completed the construction of the new tunnel and the design and refurbishment of the existing vehicular tunnel, David had another spell working full time on DB Design and Draughting projects. This edge allows Regency Home Designs to take on any architectural related works covering home extensions, new builds or loft conversions with the comfort of knowing all aspects of works are carried out by professionals on your behalf.
