Specification Writing

G&J always write the specifications for their own architectural projects and have produced NBS format specifications for more than 20 years for a wide range of both public and private buildings types.

Recently G&J have been commissioned to write specifications, working closely with renowned international architects for the following building types

  • a new national museum (Kurdistan National Museum, Erbil)
  • a University research building (Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics, Durham)
  • a community healthcare building (Maggie’s South West Wales)
  • a large secure European financial office complex including catering, social sports and healthcare facilities for employees (confidential)

G&J welcome the opportunity to compile such documentation, working as an integral part of design teams responsible for developing quality, robustly detailed designs for cutting edge, award-winning projects. G&J’s wider experience in major capital projects’ design and delivery around the world puts them in a strong position to support

  • all manner of primary frame construction
  • innovative facade designs
  • sustainable material choices throughout, and detailing with consideration of ready maintenance and replacement

G&J coordinate their architectural brief writing with engineering colleagues, ensuring that all interfaces are comprehensively described, to meet the Design Team’s and Client’s expectations.
