A well organised team results in a successful projet

Our team is composed of a variety of specialist professionals. Each person is responsible for their own decisions, but we all have one common goal –   the success of the project. We hold weekly team meetings as well as various ad hoc exchanges in our open plan studio, enabling us to collaborate well together and to share our workload correctly, in order to optimise our in-house proceedures.  

Our working philosophy

Due to the nature of our work, the studio is a natural learning environment. Good definition of the brief, programme and budget is the basis of any successful project, along with the strategy employed by the collaborators. At Reid Brewin Architects we attach a geat deal of importance to these procedures. The role of the team and the project’s goals must be clearly defined throughout. We have a project methodology which is supported by ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 in order to optimise the quality of the work that we produce and leave the maximum amount of time available for the design. As with our clients, we encourage a climate of confidence within our team to improve internal cooperation. Helping one another builds team spirit…

A bilingual architectural practice

A fully biligual team

Our team consists of French and English speaking architects who can design and follow architectural projects in France and abroad. Fully bilingual, the team at Reid Brewin Architects are able to oversee all phases of the project from conception through to completion in both english and french. These phases include the choice and detailling of the building materials, all administration procedures as well as following the building works on site. Our bilingual team includes architects that are registered in France with the Ordre des Architectes, with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and with the Architectural Registration Board (ARB) in the UK. Both Alex Reid and Adrian Brewin are members of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS).

Open communication and multicultural approach

A multicultural approach, strong technical skills and rigorous working methodology are key assets that set us apart and are highly appreciated by our clients. We aim to bring to life the projects as our clients imagine them, by putting forward innovative and creative solutions consistent with the highest quality standards. Receptive and responsive to the needs and ambitions of the client, the firm aims to understand particular cultural perspectives as well as the specific issues of each project. Our objective is to provide pragmatic, informed and effective solutions based on a detailed knowledge of the urban context, landscaping, environmental and technical factors and the social and historical aspects. These principles are reinforced by the on-going commitment to using efficient working methods, training and staff development. The practice now uses BIM (Revit) on all of its major projects and is also certified ISO 9001 for quality management as well as ISO 14001, in keeping with Reid Brewin Architects’s commitment to enviromentally responsible design and sustainability.
