ISA IS AN ARCHITECTURE AND INTERIOR DESIGN PRACTICE WORKING ACROSS THE UK FOR THE COUNTRY’S LEADING BUSINESSES

Over 20 years, our considered, rigorous and proactive approach has afforded us long-standing relationships with clients across commercial, residential and hospitality sectors. We deliver projects on-time and on-budget; making the process easy and allowing clients’ focus to remain on their business. Our work is characterised by a pragmatic simplicity, with carefully conceived interiors.

ISA’s workload ranges from luxury hotels to large-scale residential and commercial projects, with construction values from £100k to £41m. This diversity means we bring a fresh perspective to our work, integrating technologies and construction methods from different sectors. In the last ten years, we have garnered a particular expertise in the design and delivery of converting and refurbishing existing buildings for new uses.

The practice offers a broad range of services from outline planning and appraisal work through to detailed implementation. Our mix of architects and interior designers allows us to offer a one-stop-shop incorporating lighting design, specification and management of client FF&E, branding and graphic identity. We undertake projects for developers as well as owner/occupiers. Our experience working with the latter gives us a unique insight into the short- and long-term operational issues of building design.

We are at the forefront of energy-saving design, implementing programmes of utility-saving measures. We have also worked on several sustainable residential projects; Associate Fiona McNeill has RIAS Accreditation in Sustainable Building Design, one of only 30 architects in Scotland.

ISA invests heavily in Building Information Modelling (BIM), CAD and IT, and operates a document management system integral to the practice’s Quality Assurance system. We take the security of our clients data seriously and are pleased to have obtained Accreditation for the UK Governments Cyber Essentials Plus standards.
