Noel is an architect with good understanding of traditional construction detailing and we have worked together successfully on two live built projects for The Princes Foundation for the building community Noel as architect with his own practise and me in charge of the day to day running of the site This included re-cycling stone, the use of locally quarried stone and a green timber frame. The most recent being a performance stage at the National Botanic Garden of Wales. Our collaboration had some challenges including bringing together young craft apprentices, some mainstream engineering practice and the coldest winter on record. The fine building is a tribute to the collective spirit engendered on the project and gained the approval of The Prince of Wales on his inspection of the completed structure. I would recommend Noel as an architect for any traditional building project.
