A PROPERTY developer has launched a high-end bespoke design and construction management business after recognising a gap in the market.
Alnwick-based James Chapple hopes to take advantage of the trend for homeowners to renovate their existing homes rather than relocate.
The new venture, James Chapple Architectural Design, has been set up to target busy professionals who require complete project management capability on residential property alterations and new builds.
Chapple said: “What really makes us different is how we take care of every aspect of a client’s project from the initial consultation through to the planning phases and completion – our dedicated team always goes the extra mile to take away the stress often associated with such projects.”
Since relocating from London to the Northumberland coast in 2006, Chapple has worked throughout the county on a wide variety of residential projects, including luxury barn conversions, period home renovations, refurbishments, flood and fire damage rectification work and extensions.
He has appointed two new members of staff – chartered architect John Mcaskie and office manager Marian White. The company also uses a team of skilled local tradesmen.
He said: “With a newly-appointed team onboard we are now expanding into new markets. We are looking forward to a busy and exciting 2013.”
