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!

Adam has a keen eye for ‘build-ability’ versus cost and will always give help and guidance whether it be to another member of the team or to our clients. Adam has been working in the architectural sector since the year 2000 and has vast experience working on various projects from single storey extensions to flats developments.

As an avid football fan, he is never a stranger to a bit of office banter!

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.

Chris is very active and has climbed Ben Nevis and taken part in Scotland’s Tough Mudder in the past. When he’s not entertaining on the piano playing his classic music you can often find him exploring the area on his bike.

Matthew joined the team as an apprentice. He has completed his NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Built Environmental Design at Moulton College.

After working in a sales environment he decided to follow his childhood passion and pursue a career in architecture. Matthew is our in house surveyor and as well as producing drawings, aided by our experienced team, he also helps out in other aspects around the office when necessary.

When Matthew is not at Blueprint you'll very rarely find him at home as the rest of his time is usually spent playing various sports and taking part in a yoga class or two!

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 spa or two!

Administrator

Nicola supports Blueprint as the office administrator. She has a productive, “can do” attitude and as the office's first point of contact she is always approachable and willing to help. She joins us from supporting her husband's landscaping business so is no stranger to organisation or hard work.

Nothing is too much for Nicola as she takes everything in her stride and will always do her best to support the team and accommodate our clients.

Between Nicola's menagerie of animals and 3 children she often jokes that she'll soon require a white jacket!
