Kelly has a broad knowledge of all things architectural and works with her team of technicians to ensure that client expectations are exceeded through high quality plans, excellent technical detailing and good communication.

Under her architectural belt Kelly holds a Degree with Honours in Architecture, a Higher National Diploma in Spatial Design and GNVQ Intermediate in Art and Design. She believes a happy work force is a happy work place. As a co-director and founding member of Blueprint Kelly feels it's her job to keep everybody happy, from clients through to staff.

Out of the office Kelly is a cocktail connoisseur and when she is not running around after her three children she enjoys a good film (whilst drinking her cocktail!).

Director

Craig produces 3D visualisations and is our in house SAP assessor. He specialises in larger bespoke projects and oversees our Disabled Facility Grants. Clients appreciate his creative approach to projects from conceptual design through to the finer eye for detailing and this is all complimented by his methodical approach and technical specifying.

He has been working in the architectural field since 2002, in a variety of roles from commercial to residential. As a co-director of Blueprint, he enjoys the challenge of trying to fulfil all of the elements of a client's brief and can often see an alternative approach to a layout.

Craig used to enjoy listening to music ... he also enjoyed gaming and owns three PlayStations, that have been gathering dust since his children were born!

Office Manager

Laura has over 18 years of administration experience mainly in the Architectural sector. Her attention to organisation and detail aid her to manage a spectrum of areas for the business. She works closely with the office administrator to provide Blueprint with the necessary admin support system.

A keen photographer, Laura has produced most of the images seen here on our website and often visits our projects to document their progress. Her interest in design and historic buildings give Laura the bridge from administration through to Architecture.

Out of the office Laura is kept busy by her two daughters, but still finds time to socialise and visit a 90's night or two!

Chris is one of our Architectural Technicians who also carries out some of our measured surveys here at Blueprint. With his substantial knowledge of AutoCAD and other design software he is a great asset to the Blueprint team. Chris has an extensive background in the designer role both in the residential and commercial sectors. He joins us from relocating from a previous technician role in Essex, but originates from Scotland.
