Partners

Access for All is a voluntary group and as such we are unable to complete formal audits. We partner with locally qualified Architects and Surveyors who have completed the CAE Access Audit course so that you can access their skills for formal audits. Please see our access audit partners below.

CCD Architects was formed in 1981 and over the past 40 years the practice has developed a reputation for thoughtful design, careful conservation of historic buildings, and innovation. The design philosophy of the practice has always been focussed on fitting architecture into the landscape, whether urban or rural, as well as reflecting the desires and needs of the clients. This approach is reflected throughout our portfolio, whether on a project for a small domestic extensions, a large new build house, medical facility or commercial project. The care with which any project is undertaken also extends into the area of making buildings accessible and inclusive.
With the advent in the island of legislation against discrimination there is a wider appreciation of the difficulties that are created by inaccessible areas of the built environment. CCD Architects seek to address the many aspects that go into successful design, including accessibility, conservation, environmental impact, cost, time frame, quality, aesthetic impact, building function and statutory requirements. Designing buildings that are truly successful has to bring all these aspects together. CCD Architects are acutely aware that we all share this island where we live and work, and the built environment needs to take this into account.
CCD Architects is one of the larger practices on the island, and therefore employs staff with a variety of skillsets. We are a team that includes Chartered Architects, Chartered Building Surveyor, Conservation Surveyor, Architectural Technologists, trainees and administration staff. In any design project we seek to ensure the requirements of accessibility legislation are met, whether applying ‘Guernsey Technical Standard Part M: Access to and Use of Buildings’ or ‘BS 8300:2018 Design of an accessible and inclusive built environment’ as appropriate.
Two of our chartered architects, Esther Male and Laura Sebire, have a particular interest in accessible design. Esther has attended a course provided by the Centre for Accessible Environments; as well as being a Chartered Architect Esther is also a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, with a particular interest in the legal and contractual aspects of building projects. She enjoys bringing together the creativity of design within the consideration of standards and statutory requirements, and so this leads naturally onto ensuring buildings do not just look good but also function efficiently. Laura has carried out access audits in Guernsey, and while working in the UK she carried out a number of projects involving alterations and extensions to existing buildings to enable a living environment to become accessible to a building user.
