skills, we are able to operate across several sectors of the construction industry and as a practice cover

- Design, both architectural and structural, across a wide range of building types
Alexander Scott Design Ltd combines the best ideas in management with a broad conception of design and a
practical construction-led approach to problem solving. Our decision to question the accepted beliefs of
the established professions has generated fresh thinking on a wide range of issues – foremost amongst these
is a dramatic widening of the skills of the designer and a thirst for knowledge beyond the accepted limits
of conventional technical disciplines. This has resulted in a steady improvement of design and construction
techniques and the generation of innovative and cost saving ideas.
In short, Alexander Scott Design Ltd challenges assumptions, tests and often rejects the status quo and
innovates when we feel we cannot accept existing solutions or methods, or equally where none exist.
