MDA Architectural Services
MDA Architectural Services Ltd has been established since August 2010. During that time we have worked with our clients on various projects.
We are seen as the designer who can provide a quality service to clients in the Horwich, Bolton, Blackrod, Adlington, Rivington and Chorley areas.
We provide accurate architectural drawings for builders and contractors to work from which are easy to understand, but more importantly to provide our clients with the new build or extension they have commissioned.
We work primarily in the North West, with completed projects in Manchester, Preston, Blackburn, Bury and Oldham.
Our commercial work with major retailers has taken us to many sites around England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We deal with more than 20 different local Planning Departments on their behalf each year.
We are also developing meaningful relationships with Care Homes and work closely with a local Interior Designer to provide a simple but quality design, sympathetic to the end user, to meet the needs of the elderly, those with dementia and those with mental health issues.

I graduated from Leeds Met University in 1992 …. in the last recession! I have worked in Architectural Practices as an Architectural Assistant for Blackburn Council’s Architect’s Department (when they had one) and progressed to a number of small private practices. During that time I developed as an Architectural Technologist on Retail, Healthcare and Residential Projects and became a member of APM and CIAT (or BIAT as it was then). I was then fortunate enough to work for a large practice – Leach Rhodes Walker in Manchester from 2004 to 2011 as a Project Leader on projects from £5M to £50M (and beyond). This was mainly in the Retail Sector, but included Hotels, Residential and Student Accommodation. The closest project to home with LRW was the new build Travelodge in Bolton next to the A666 which was completed with Seddon Construction.
