I cannot recommend this company highly enough; Chris Lawson and his team of merry men (and women) have really earned their money on our project. They pulled out all the stops to ensure that our Building Regulations plans were drawn up, submitted and approved within the agreed timescale (and it was very tight!) so that our builder could commence within a few short weeks. And Chris came up with several very useful design ideas that we would never have considered without him. Then, when the council decided we needed Planning Permission for our two-storey extension, CK Architectural quickly and efficiently proved that in fact the proposal fell within Permitted Development rights; saving us weeks and weeks of delay, which would have caused us to lose our builder. I have found them an absolute delight to work with; they have been very professional and have responded to queries (and I have raised many!), very quickly. 5 Stars just isn't enough! More...

Used CKJ after I had received some ridiculous quotes for a large extension I was doing. CKJ came in well under the others but were professional in their approach. Chris the boss undertook all site measurements and came up with some good ideas to improve the visual aspects. Everything was on-time, to an excellent standard, passed by planning and as agreed fees. Chris and his team were a pleasure to work with. Unfortunately my seller pulled out so I could not undertake the work. Would highly recommend this company to anyone thinking of a small or large job.

We wanted some drawings done for a rear extension on our house. We was on a tight budget so we had several company's come round to quote us. Not only was CK Architectural one of the cheapest, they was also the most professional and helpful. No matter how much of a pain i was emailing them, they always replied and answered all my questions. I 100% would recommend these. Thank You Very Much for all your hard work! More...

We were wanting a 2 Storey extension on our home and had no clue where to start, contacted a few local companies for advice, we found CK Architectural to be the cheapest by far. Our ideas where transformed into drawings and CK Architectural saw the process through from Planning to Building Regulations. Lovely staff and nothing was too much trouble. I will definitely recommend to friends and family. More...

Helping clients realise how much potential is in the current property and making a house a home for life

My vision has been built from seeing the poor service from previous employers such as architects, surveyors and engineers. I want every client to get a consistent, reliable service even after the fee has been paid. I noticed in previous firms all the effort was made at the start of the project and after payment, things were slotted in. I have created a system that ensures all planning and building regulations drawings go in on time with professionally prepared plans. Our drawings continue to improve as we listen to our clients and their builders. I want people to be given all the knowledge before going forward with their project as I know it is a one-shot deal for some. We will give options in design and explain them to you, along with cost and potential pitfalls. Our team of planning experts will let you know the likelihood of success or the best way to tackle larger developments. In short, I want a company that delivers to a high standard every time and our clients will always be glad they chose us to redesign their home

We guarantee you will get the best design options so you can make the right choices, and with our face to face design meeting you get to explore the designs in the comfort of your own home. We have a network of Design, Planning and Construction professionals ready to take on your project and no fees are due until your designs are ready.


If your family is growing or you simply would like more space, extensions are a great way to add living space to your home. More functional space – a bigger kitchen with bi-folding doors, leading into the garden or a utility room, for example, could transform your home.

A loft conversion can be an easy and cheap way to get an extra room into your home, the space is already there. Master bedrooms with en-suite and dressing rooms, a cinema/games room or children’s playroom can be achieved with good architectural design.

If you are thinking about building your own dream home, whether it is a self-build, new build or you’re already a seasoned developer, then we’re ready to help. We have all the knowledge, expertise and skills you will need to carry out your project.

The success of any project begins with a brief that understands and reflects your needs/ requirements. We have a long track record of working with retailers and landlords where the priorities are time/programme and cost.

After the design stage is perfected, the planning has been approved and the building regulation drawings are completed, the project is then ready to be done. There is still a great deal to prepare, so at CK Architectural Manchester we offer a full Project Management Service.

A successful design of a school should be a close collaboration between the financing, local authorities, school communities and the design team. Working with you and the rest of the team, we can familiarise ourselves with your requirements, to ensure that your school achieves all its goals and objectives.

Barn conversions make amazing places to live, if the design works with the character and the existing structure. If you are lucky enough to have bought a countryside building to convert into a beautiful new home, planning laws have relaxed, and it is now easier to create character rich warm homes in rural areas.

Working with you on the design brief and familiarising ourselves with your operations, we’ll ensure that your project achieves all your goals and objectives. Using our knowledge, we can develop custom buildings tailored to your needs to allow your commercial operations to run smoothly, whilst future proofing for expansion.

Is your family out growing your existing home, but you don’t want to move, or do you want the additional space for overnight guests and entertaining?
A double storey extension designed by a good architect or architectural designer adds space to the ground and first floor of your house to the rear or to the side. The ground floor can have all the benefits of a single storey extension – bigger kitchen and/or utility room, or a feature room with the wow factor. The first floor then adds bedrooms, bathrooms, a study or en-suites.
