Jackson Architects Ltd was established by Jason Jackson in 1992 and provides a friendly, personal yet professional service to our clients in the South West. The practice is founded on the belief that employing an architect should be a simple, cost effective and ultimately enjoyable experience. We also believe that we should make your dreams a reality, not our own, and the portfolio gives an insight into just how varied those dreams can be.
We specialise in new houses, listed buildings, domestic extensions, barn conversions, green oak frames and swimming pools. Whether you are looking for a traditional design, using traditional materials and craftsmanship, or stripped down modern design, our love of natural materials, purity of detail and technical expertise will ensure your dreams are realised.View Our Video
High Quality Drawings
The culmination of an architect’s skill is to understand and interpret your needs in a creative, imaginative yet eminently practical way. It is vital we work with you to develop your initial ideas into a practical design and then convey these design requirements accurately and concisely to the builder. These design drawings and construction drawings are very different in character yet require a thorough understanding at all levels to ensure that the design ideas are not diluted during the process.

We are very proud of the quality of our construction drawings and the level of cost and quality control that this gives on site. Good drawings are the foundation blocks of a good project. Don’t accept anything less. Projects based upon sub-standard detailed drawings will inevitably disappoint.
Jackson Architects understand that most of our clients have never used an architect before and have very little idea of how much it will cost. Our first consultation is always free, following which we will quote fixed lump sum fees and give realistic build budgets so that the costs of the project are clear and understandable from the outset.
We do not quote fees based upon a percentage of the build cost because of the inherent conflict of interest if Architect's fees escalate as the agreed budget is exceeded. We are so confident in our ability that we will only charge the agreed fixed fee once the design has your absolute approval.
Contract Administration and detailed design is pointless if the detail conveyed by the drawings is ignored once work begins. Not surprisingly we prefer to see the project through to completion with thorough project management service to ensure that tight quality and financial control are maintained.
Whatever the size of project our practical sound technical expertise and understanding of the building process is second to none. Couple this with strong contract management and you have a recipe for a successful project from inception to completion.
