Thanks to the generosity of ‘ask an architect’ donors and sponsors, 100% of funds raised will go to The Jill Todd Trust. In addressing one of the registered objectives of the Trust, funds raised will go to assist research, conducted in the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology at Belfast City Hospital, into finding a cure for cancer – via its affiliated charity – Friends of the Cancer Centre.
At your consultation, the architect can advise on any size of building project from a loft conversion to a new build (domestic, commercial or civic). Some things you might discuss:

I am absolutely delighted with the service I have received so far from 2020 Architects! It was an excellent idea of having a free consultation with them first and your donation goes to charity!! I am now in the process of designing my house with them then hopefully building soon! Michael and Siobhán were able to understand my brief and what we want out of our new house. I would totally recommend 2020 Architects and the ask an architect initiative.
After meeting Chris Allen for my appointment made through ask an architect, I instantly felt that he would be someone I would like to work with on my new house. I was so happy talking to Chris because he listened to me. We are now ready to submit our full planning permission for a new house which I love.
I found the exercise very useful, in that it both opened up & clarified my thinking. It did inform my eventual decision and I’d encourage anyone thinking of doing any work to avail of the opportunity.
