The Edwards Irish Partnership LLP is an established architectural practice based in Wokingham, Berkshire.

We have considerable experience in all aspects of architecture and building construction. We aim to create viable and sustainable architectural solutions for our clients, which achieve a high standard of design whilst being at ease and in context with their environment. The practice was formed in 1989 by Paul Edwards and John Irish and is an award winning registered and RIBA chartered architects practice, offering expertise in all aspects of residential, commercial, leisure and conservation projects.

About us

John Irish B.Sc Hons, Dip Arch.RIBA studied at London University and was awarded the Donaldson undergraduate Prize. He has had a broad based and extensive experience ranging from Hospital Buildings, Oxford University projects, Government Buildings etc before starting the practice with his partner Paul Edwards.

Paul Edwards began on the practical side of the construction industry and commenced his architectural career in 1973, gaining considerable experience within architectural practices in Reading and Windsor, having been involved in all aspects of residential, industrial and commercial work, particularly conservation work and Listed Buildings. Further experience in the residential field was achieved with award-winning housing developers. Both partners have the backing of an experienced technical department, headed by Anthony Eeley, MCIAT, all of whom have considerable experience in every aspect of architectural drawings and specifications etc.

A qualified technical department backs up the two partners.

The aim of the practice is to provide clients with a comprehensive and informed service through all stages of construction from brief writing, initial feasibility studies, advice and sketch schemes, through to detailed planning applications, Building Regulation approvals, specifications, competitive tenders and contract management through to project completion.

Our Process

Each new project is assigned to a partner at the start, who will stay with the project throughout all of its stages. This ensures continuity of thought and design principles.

We visit and evaluate the site then, with our knowledge of the planning system, prepare feasibility studies to maximise the potential of the site. Using our knowledge and design capabilities a concept design emerges which, through discussion, meets the client’s brief.

The concept design is further developed into a detailed planning proposal with all negotiations with the Local Authority being handled on the client’s behalf. A variety of presentation methods are employed from free hand sketches to computer generated images. The whole planning application process is monitored.

The design is then developed into a set of construction drawings with all necessary approvals being obtained on the client’s behalf.

During construction we are able to provide a full RIBA service or partial service to ensure the project is finished on programme, built to a satisfactory standard and to budget. We are also able to issue Architects Certificates.
