ACA+I is a multi-disciplinary consultancy with substantial experience in Healthcare, Education, Commercial, Conservation and Residential sectors.

Our approach to building and enhancing quality of lives, confidence and a strong sense of core community.

ACA’s approach is to look at the lifespan of critical elements of a building. This includes structure and vertical circulation, engineering services, internal layouts and partitioning; grouping activities with similar technical requirements; positioning lifts and staircases so that they do not affect future layouts; using standard and universal room sizes and embracing sustainable technologies.

Through our integrated and open approach we learn and work with residents, commissioners, the wider community and all important user groups.  This enables us to clearly understand their essential wants and needs to establish and develop the scope, activity and space requirements.

“Our proven track record measures circa 90% repeat business and is on the increase.”

“We don’t just design buildings, we enhance lives, build sustainable, community, living spaces and deliver functionality with a dash of Italian flair.”
