Neil Spacey RIBA

I am Neil Spacey, a chartered architect & builder based in Gower, Swansea. I offer flexible, friendly and professional services across the whole of south Wales with an enduring commitment to achieving serious energy savings and promoting environmental awareness. I have traditional architect's experience with many types of building, so whatever your next project please consider giving NASArchitects a call.

I also offer a unique 'One Stop Shop' design + build service for domestic projects which streamlines the typical inefficiencies in architect led house building. If 'high quality' or 'low energy' form part of the plans for your new / extended / refurbished home, I consider my way the only way - please call for a chat. No doubt, design + build indulges two of my passions and is the direction in which my business is evolving.

I currently trade as a sole practitioner and offer economic services in-house for most projects. For larger or more complex projects I have excellent relationships with a well established 'on-call' network - extra office staff, energy assessors, structural, civil, highways & drainage engineers, specialist renewable energy plumbers & electrics and all trades people - groundworkers to roofers - all available for inavluable 'real-world' technical and cost advice. Please check out or give me a call for further information.
