Technical Detail brings a streamlined commercial process to the public.

We are a Chartered Architectural Technologists Practice (MCIAT) and have worked on a huge variety of projects through the years.

We have honed the knowledge & problem solving ability that this has given us and now offer it to the public as a design and architectural management service or agency.

We approach all projects from a “problem solving” perspective by establishing as many constraints as we can identify and then manage the design within them to give a final product, by appointing and coordinating Technical Consultants on your behalf, and ensuring that they adhere to the “Architectural Concept” or design brief, to form the drawings, specifications and applications that may be required.

This not only speeds up the design process, but means that the final solution is fully resolved, it fits your requirements & local authority requirements, is realistic to build and will certainly look nice!

What some “Constraints” and how do they help?

  • Client Brief & requirements.
  • Budget & Cost limit.
  • Site physical constraints, Topography.
  • Planning Authority laws & local policy
  • Building Regulation & UK building Codes.
  • Current Building Methods.
  • Legal agreements & covenants (Title deeds).
  • Skills of main contractor (If chosen or known at outset).
  • Sales figures of properties in the area.

Finding “constraints” like these mean that you start far from a blank canvas, but rather you then have a fairly detailed structure to work within.

The solution designed will be original and elegant, even innovative. Of course, you would expect no less from those having our expertise and insight.

So who does Technical Detail Work with? – Here are some regulars!


Managing Director

Mob:    07900 807 687
Tim Rae is a Chartered Architectural Technologist (MCIAT), who has worked in the design & construction industry since 1993.
Tim originally studied at Glasgow College of Building & Printing and Caledonian University, where he achieved an ONC in Building Technology and an HNC in Architectural Technology, whilst working for a major housing developer. By working in various capacities across the UK, from residential housing sector to major commercial projects as well as consulting to various architects, he gained a diverse knowledge of the construction industry and could see a niche in the market for a company that could give the professionalism required in the commercial world, but harnessed for private and domestic clients. So in 2005 he formed his own company to fit this niche. Technical Detail Ltd. is now the streamlined vision from 2005 and we hope that you will appreciate this as you work through the stages with us.
