At the age of thirty Trevor decided to follow the path he had been putting off for so long. This decision was not easy and nor was the journey that was about to unfold. (Should have done this 10 years before!). Along with starting a new career, starting a family, studying at every opportunity, life was a challenge.
Trevor started working for William Miller Architects Ltd in 2003. With a great mentor,Trevor had the opportunity to work on a number of different architectural projects through conception to completion, gaining invaluable knowledge and expertise on design principles, residential design, construction methods and energy efficiency in buildings. In 2009 Trevor received a degree in Architectural Technology and completed the ABBE level 3 Energy Assessor course.
Once qualified, Trevor was ready for a new challenge and TCS Design was launched. Working from a spare bedroom in the family home and with the help of some good friends, TCS Design was soon working on residential alterations and extension projects, with the aim to help home owners through the design process to extend, adapt and improve their homes. Over the last few years TCS Design has seen a steady growth in new projects and have helped more than sixty families improve their homes.
TCS Design moved to the Elsworth office in April 2015 and was joined in 2016 by both Harvey and Rachael. In November 2016, due to continued growth TCS Design changed status to a Limited company and the name of the company was amended to TCS Architectural Design Ltd. In March 2017, Trevor’s wife Lisa joined the team to deal with the increasing management demands of a growing business.
Despite these changes our philosophy remains the same ‘To work with our client’s initial ideas and aspirations and guide them through the design process from start to finish.’
“Growing up and living on a building site and seeing first hand how a home can be transformed into a space that was created just for us was a fantastic experience”.
