 Ask the expert home design and planning event - Stamford

 Enjoy a FREE half-hour consultation with a RIBA chartered architect and talk through your ideas with representatives from property consultants Bidwells. The event will take place on Saturday 8 July at Stamford Arts Centre between 10.30am and 4.30pm

This is a unique opportunity to discuss your design needs with a built environment professional in a free and strictly no obligation/no liability meeting - bring along your plans, drawings and budgets to get the most out of your session. You can book in advance or reserve your place on the day on a first-come, first-served basis. Places can be booked via the Arts Centre website or by calling 01780 763203.

The event will be accompanied by a Lego activity for all ages between 11 am and 2pm. Try to beat the architect’s time by building a popular Stamford landmark from Lego against the clock in our Beat the Architect challenge. Or just come along on the day and build your own Lego model.

RIBA chartered architects have achieved the gold standard in their profession and can help on all aspects of design around the home including maximising space, creating extra storage, introducing energy- and money-saving solutions and adding value to customers’ homes. The following practices are taking part: DT Architects; Jan Maciag Architects; Le Sage Associates Ltd; Peter Wilmot Architects.

Planning and heritage experts from Bidwells can also field any questions you might have about your project, from the permitted sizes of development to technical aspects of historic buildings – and how best to approach the planning process.

This event has been organised by RIBA East Midlands and RIBA East in partnership with Stamford 50 in celebration of the town’s designation as the first Conservation Area in 1967.
