About ARicab

We offer a complete service from Inception to Completion or we can tailor a bespoke service to meet your specific requirements.

We have a core policy of investing in and developing the skills of our professional staff through continuing professional development which keeps us abreast of changes to legislation and technical advances particularly in the areas of sustainable development, planning law, Construction Health and Safety and the Equality Act (formerly The Disability Discrimination Act).

We use the latest computer technology which allows us to provide clients with an efficient and cost effective service. Our computer system allows us to produce 3D models and "fly through" animations which enable our clients to visualize their projects at an early stage in the design process.

Direct and continuing contact with the practice principal is ensured for the client and all aspects of the project receive the principal's attention. From experience gained in dealing with a wide range of residential and commercial building projects, assistance can be given on the appointment of specialist consultants and contractors.

Aricab Architects is registered with Constructionline, the UK's largest register of qualified construction services.

Company Profile

BIM is an acronym for Building Information Modeling, or Building Information Model. It describes the process of designing a building collaboratively using one coherent system of computer models rather than as separate sets of drawings. At the technical core of BIM is the software that enables 3D modeling and information management.

For over 20 years ARicab have been using ArchiCad the industry first software for architects in the production of 2D and 3D drawings and illustrations.
