Southport-based Clayton Architecture has expanded into a new commercial premises to meet its growing order book.

The fully RIBA Chartered and ARB Registered Architecture Practice works alongside homeowners, developers and contractors on bespoke house extensions, custom new build homes and housing developments.

In addition to the larger premises, the company has also invested in new design software, better quality assurance systems and a virtual reality headset. The team also plans to recruit extra staff once the worst of the coronavirus pandemic is over.

The investments were backed by funds from Barclays.

Joseph Clayton, managing director of Clayton Architecture, said"The new premises have been critical in the growth of the practice.

"The support from Barclays has allowed us some freedom for self-investment and given some additional financial headroom, which has proven invaluable this year."
