As such, I am focused entirely on this sector and the design process I adopt takes clients through their own journey to cater for their specific needs and requirements. This specialism also allows me to forge strong links to other consultants and suppliers that focus on the same audience, allowing my clients to benefit from all of these relationships, enhancing the end product and increasing the chances of success greatly.” “As a registered Chartered Architectural Technologist, I work to high professional standards required by the C.I.A.T (Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists). This accreditation assures my clients that when they work with me I will provide them with a professional service advising them independently. My clients’ interests are at the forefront of any design decisions.” Offering UK wide services, Tony has a broad overview of the property market in the UK currently, which he is eager to share with us. “Within the UK housing market currently there is a shortage of good self-build plots with most being offered to mass house builders. Currently, we work on a 50/50 split of clients that have managed to acquire a plot of land and those that has chosen to remodel an existing property.” Overall, Tony is proud of his current success and keen to achieve even more moving forward, as he was happy to conclude. “Ultimately, it is a privilege to be asked to design someone’s home and to be recognised in this way is a bonus and an indication that I’m succeeding in creating great design solutions for my clients.” Tony Holt: Designing the Future for Self-Builders
