About us - Established from my great grandfather’s construction business which originated in 1796

Eric Marchbanks our senior designer was “born and bred” into the construction industry, after college he has worked on the following:- minor through to major refurbishments; Extensions, Garages and Loft Conversions to One of Design Houses and small development sites. He has also worked alongside English Heritage on projects ranging from Churches to Castles (Ancient monuments), to grade 1 listed and grade two/two star buildings and houses.

Eric Marchbanks who is still our senior designer personally supervised all the works as Main contractor and project manager for works to the tower of St. Nicholas Church - those works were awarded the King of Prussia Award.

We can specialise in the following areas:

  • Design of New Extensions and Houses
  • Submission of plans to council, including planning applications and building control application
  • Design of New Garages, garage conversions and loft conversions
  • Design only of any of the above and/or obtaining quotes and Site Supervision if required
  • Build, Design or Design and Build
  • We Design by Thought, Design with Character
  • Build with care and attention to detail

What we do

Marchbanks can produce plans to suit your need from the small to the large at competitive prices for the work we do. We can submit to the relevant planning authorities on your behalf and negotiate with them as necessary for the consent. If required we can also manage the tender procedure including helping you to meet your required Health and Safety obligations with outside contractors and finally we can project manage the works through to completion ensuring that the contractor works efficiently and effectively including vetting Contractors interim an final accounts on your behalf before issuing certificates for payment whether you are using a main contractor or a variety of subcontractors.

Whilst we serve a wide range of individual domestic clients, we also are able to serve property speculators designing new houses and residential developments including Housing Associations.

We are happy to work with clients who for whatever reason wish to complete either 'self-build' projects from just producing designs and plans through to full Contract administration and Site Supervision.

Call or email us today, via our Contact page, for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.

Designs to meet your requirements - we can design your project with lots of Architectural features or as a no frills budget design with cost per m2 of building as the main criteria or somewhere in between. However, we try to blend any extension to the existing and won't design something that will devalue your house (we have had customer suggestions in the past that would do just that!). We will voice our opinion and offer advice against those suggestions
