Reality Building Design


Reality Building Design provides a friendly, knowledgable, low cost, construction design service, which can help you to get the most of your property in any economic climate, adding value and improving the space. Dependent on your property, your intended level of construction may require planning permission or building regulations approval. We are able to prepare such applications utilising the latest Computer Aided Design technology, with an added flair for presentation which will help to ensure the best outcome for your application.


Reality Building Design is run by Andrew Gowland, an Architectural Technician and Surveyor with over 20 years experience in the construction industry in both the residential and commercial sectors.

At the heart of the business is a passion to meet the needs of our clients and to exceed their expectations. Our aim is to ensure that any construction work is appropriate for your needs, and that it meets the demands of a modern lifestyle.


A deep and abiding interest in buildings combined with the need to tread lightly on the earth, has brought an approach which eschews convention wherever possible. However, experience ranging from commercial property maintenance management to residential design and detailing, ensures design based in the practicalities and realities of the UK construction industry.


During the design and construction process it is sometimes neccessary to engage consultants in various areas of expertise, Reality Building Design maintains connections with a range of Structural Engineers, Surveyors and Energy Assessors to ensure the right consultant is used for the right project.
