Aracus Ltd

Offering architectural design services and measured building surveys for private developers and trade customers.


I’m Andy Flanagan; an Architectural Technologist, accredited as an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists with over 12 years professional experience in RIBA, RICS and CIOB practices, specialising in the more technical side of architecture.

In 2012 I started offering drawing services on a contract basis to Architects and Contractors around the northwest. Projects increased in scale and value over the years. As client relationships grew, opportunities to adopt the principal designer role on a number of housing projects came about.


“Diligent, accurate and prompt – a thoroughly professional service, and at a competitive cost.”

My clients originally came to me as Architects who had a temporary surplus of work, or building contractors who required technical design packages. I have worked with several clients repeatedly over the years who have been extremely satisfied with the quality and price of the work I do.

Recent projects include the development of Stage 4 construction level design packages for several housing schemes around the northwest, obtaining planning permission for industrial developments around Derbyshire, measured surveys for continued architectural development at several bars and restaurants around the north-west, and a number of developments for private homeowners. I have also provided technical design packages for a number of service-led commercial and industrial developments.

I focus on the technology of design. While architects are responsible for coming up with initial concepts and designs, I am more concerned with the technical side of construction. I work closely with architects and other building professionals to resolve any potential design problems before construction starts.

As well as drawing packages and building surveys, I also offer construction specifications, contract administration and CDM design risk assessments.

I am happy to work for both trade and private clients.
