We are a small architectural practice headed by Gary Sorsby who is a Chartered Member of The Institute of Architectural Technologists.
We mainly operate mainly in the North of England, although we have worked all over the UK, most recently in Doncaster and Worksop, and prior to that Norwich and Colchester for a night club chain as well the whole of the UK, Aberdeen to Southampton for a major building society.
We carry out all types of projects for individual clients, self builders, building contractors and property developers.
Barn Conversion & Extension.
A speculative development by a local developer, with the conversions
being constructed in timber frame and finished externally with local sandstone walling.
I have worked with Gary on a number of occasions on projects on my property and always value his honesty and integrity
I have dealt with Gary for over 7 years on a very difficult listed barn conversion at Wigglesworth near the foot of the Yorkshire Dales. His sharp eye to detail and historical research allowed us to find that the barn was originally 3.5 meters higher in construction before it was involved in a fire in 1958. The result is a staggering additional floor space of approx. 4,000 sq ft! Always very professional and delivers what he says. I could not have asked for a better man for the project
Gary, Thanks for the work carried out on the 3 projects for the family. We found the end results provided us with the internal layout and external appearance we required and they justify your hard work. We will be only too pleased to work with you again when we are ready to further develop and refer you to our friends.
Great design, coupled with excellent technical ability and service makes, in my opinion, Graphics Architectural Services the area’s leading architectural practice from conception to completion
I have employed Gary Sorsby of Graphics Architectural Services on 4 different occasions over the past few years. I have always found the service to be exceptional and the help and advice that was given freely of great value. This is essential especially in the planning stages of a new project.
I have always found Gary to be the most approachable of people which made the extension of our home so much easier. Discussing the options allied to the improvements you are looking for is made so much easier when someone puts themselves in your shoes and provides that welcome guidance. Gary stood up to the mark and created the living space we were looking for.
Gary’s work was recommended to us by a friend and we, in turn, have since recommended him to others. My husband and I built a small house and to say we were novices is an understatement – a fireman and local government officer were clueless about building design and construction. Gary talked us through the planning and building regulation process and presented draft designs for our consideration and to suit our budget. His experience was particularly valuable in suggesting design elements of which we were unaware. He enabled us to gain the maximum amount of space on our limited plot and to construct a lovely, contemporary and light filled home. Our project came through on budget and on time. I fear we would have paid loads more for professional advice if we hadn’t “just rung Gary”! His knowledge was priceless and I would certainly use his services again.
Gary Sorsby was employed on a house build project in Brighouse. Gary drew the plans which were approved but not without very complex conditions applied by the Council. Gary was supportive throughout the build helping us to understand what was required and helping us to problem solve with issues not with the plans, but environmental issues. His support was crucial to resolving these matters as well as with other problems that arose within progress of the build. We are delighted with our house and remain for ever grateful for all the help and support we received. Gary comes highly recommended.
The best testimonial is probably what I said about hiring you, for the expressed reason that you would call it as you see it, and that you would steer me in a direction which would be in my best interest. In short, based on previous dealings with you I find you to be trustworthy, forthright, and honest with a high standard of integrity.
Gary has overseen several of our building projects over the past 12 years and has always shown to have the utmost reliability, integrity and ingenuity. He is approachable, knowledgeable and listens to your requirements. I would highly recommend him.
Gary gave us an extremely professional service that was specifically tailored to our individual requirements. We would highly recommend him.
Anyone who has undertaken to create themselves a new home either by self-build or renovation, will know that the design process and achieving the necessary planning permissions is lengthy, costly and often the most stressful part of the project. Gary / Graphic Architectural Services has been there for us every step of the way and without him, it is unlikely we would have achieved what we have and more importantly been able to do so without compromising on the original vision of what we wanted to achieve. We would highly recommend his / their services to anyone with a historic building and/or in a conservation area.
I have always found Gary to be the most approachable of people which made the extension of our home so much easier. Discussing the options allied to the improvements you are looking for is made so much easier when someone puts themselves in your shoes and provides that welcome guidance.
