Architecture and Engineering Projects in Kent

Sheridan Design Ltd undertake a variety of project types, from small domestic extensions to large commercial, industrial and healthcare projects. We support projects from inception to completion. The practice works in many counties; valuing both the connection with our local community and further afield as can be seen below.

The practice has developed a reputation for innovative design delivered through a collaborative approach with our clients.

The beautiful and historically important town of Sandwich is where our office is based. We have amassed extensive architectural and engineering experience in Grade 2 Listed Building projects. There are many challenges for architects and engineers in Sandwich working on what can be important medieval buildings. Our architectural and engineering projects in Sandwich generally include working on refurbishment and restoration projects of Listed Buildings. We are pleased to be involved in an improvement project in one of the historic churches of Sandwich. We view Listed Buildings as architectural gems and are very skilled in conserving these buildings for future generations. We have also had the opportunity of working on new developments in Sandwich and the surrounding villages which have been challenging due to land constraints and conservation implications.

We have carried out many projects in the architecturally important city of Canterbury. The city has undergone redevelopment in recent years; some of the local landmarks such as the theatre and library have been rebuilt in a modern vernacular. We are fortunate in having the city of Canterbury on our doorstep giving Sheridan Design Ltd, architects and engineers, the opportunity to enhance the architecture of this beautiful place. Expertise developed by experience has seen us involved in many interesting projects in and around the heart of the city. We have been involved in residential development projects and many healthcare projects at the Chaucer Hospital and Kent and Canterbury Hospital. We have also been involved in projects in the many outlying villages of Canterbury, including one off housing and refurbishment design.

Dover is a town of significance, it is the port and main gateway into the UK and where Dover Castle still imposes on its hilltop location. The town is now experiencing an architectural regeneration. There are challenges for architects and engineers in this regeneration process. Our architectural and engineering projects generally include working on refurbishment projects but also projects ranging from housing developments to one off commissions. We have also had the opportunity of working on projects in the nearby beautiful seaside area of St Margaret’s. Sheridan Design Ltd welcome the challenges of regeneration and conservation architecture.

To make life easier for our clients we offer the following associated services required for projects:-

80 Houses at Deal Barracks

This large scale housing development on the historic site of the old army backs cost £5.5 million pounds. The vibrant seaside town of Deal is a fine example of Georgian seaside architecture, many are Grade 2 Listed Buildings. There have been many challenges for us in Deal working on important historic buildings; Listed Buildings need sympathetic design to uphold their historic heritage whilst enabling modern day living to be sensitively integrated.

Our architectural and engineering projects in Deal also include the refurbishment and restoration of Listed Buildings and historic buildings. We have been involved in redevelopment projects ranging from new housing schemes to one off commissions. The opportunity of working on new developments in the area has been challenging as the area is designated as a flood plain. The team at Sheridan Design Ltd welcome these challenges.

12 Flats in Bexhill-on-Sea

This sketch scheme for 12 flats was inspired by the site's close proximity to the first Art Deco building in England, the famous De La Warr Pavilion. Subsequently the design has evolved to emphasis the more Edwardian style context. This project successfully achieved planning consent.

14 Flats in Folkestone

Folkestone is the location of our contribution to the regeneration of the heart of the town with a design for an infill site with a fine Listed Building as neighbour. From an engineering perspective it was a challenge providing residential accommodation on five storeys on a sloping site on poor ground and with sub strata obstructions and difficult access.

The design for a housing scheme in the recently regenerated area of Folkestone has drawn major influence from its new context and close proximity to the sea through the use of glazing and pastel shades. The design mimics the fenestration and floor levels of its neighbour, Grace Chapel, so that visually they sit comfortably together.

We have carried out many Structural inspections in Folkestone as part of the area is built on a geological slip line.

The Farmhouse

This large two storey extension was completed in 2009, and seamlessly blends with the existing farmhouse. The project presented a challenge to the structural engineer as the ground conditions were running sand, but an economic solution of piling with an integrated slab provided a successful outcome for the project.
