Columba Cook Ltd

is a gifted, friendly practice of architects and surveyors based in Christchurch on the south coast of England. The practice has a strong portfolio of new build, refurbishment and conservation projects and specializes in ecclesiastical architecture and the historic environment. The practice has RIBA Chartered status.

Founded in 1984, Columba Cook Ltd has built a reputation for fine work and excellent service. This has been recognised by public and commercial awards and repeat commissions from happy clients. The practice believes that the process is as important as the product and seeks to work collaboratively with consultants, statutory authorities and contractors to achieve the best possible results for its clients.

Columba Cook Ltd has extensive experience of working with private, corporate and group clients, such as church councils and building committees. It believes in the attention to detail, the economic use of financial and natural resources and the correct selection of appropriate building technologies for each project.

The practice operates across the south of England and up to Oxfordshire but, depending on the project, will travel further afield. The most distant commission undertaken so far was in Norway. The size of the practice varies depending on the prevailing economic conditions but the firm maintains a core staff of three principals who oversee every aspect of each project undertaken.
