Darren Mayner BA.Hons B.Arch

Based in Alfreton, Derbyshire, I am an award winning, ARB Registered Architect with over 30 years experience. My experience includes new builds and extensions to a broad range of building types including: houses, flats, offices, care homes, schools, nurseries, industrial, community, health, church, art gallery and listed buildings.

As a sole trader I guarantee that your project will receive my personal attention and there will be no VAT added to my fees.

Darren Mayner Architect

Architectural Services Provided

Feasibility and Survey

Are your proposals viable? I can carry out measured surveys and prepare accurate scale drawings as a basis for producing sketch designs for evaluating different options and discussing with you before developing the design in more detail.

Planning & Listed Building Applications

Do you need planning or listed building consent? I will create a bespoke design that best meets your specific requirements and prepare scale drawings and reports required for the submission of a planning application. I will complete forms and submit the application to the Local Authority on your behalf. Where necessary, I can also help with the appointment of other consultants to prepare specialist design elements or reports.

Building Regulations Approval

Almost all projects require building regulations approval. I can prepare drawings to meet current regulations and submit them for approval.

Project Management and Construction

I can advise on suitable construction methods, produce construction drawings and contract documents for pricing, monitor progress on site, inspect construction work and issue architect's certificates.

Areas Covered

I am based in Alfreton and work mostly in the Mid-Derbyshire and North Nottinghamshire areas but I would consider undertaking projects further afield.


My fees are determined on a project by project basis depending on the degree of complexity and the amount of time required to provide the services required. I provide a fee quotation at the outset based on an initial meeting to establish your requirements and I invoice in stages as I progress with the work. I believe my fees are reasonable and there is no VAT added to my invoices - a benefit to non-VAT-registered clients.
