About Chaplin Farrant

Established in 1938 by John Chaplin, we have grown into one of the leading multi-disciplinary companies in East Anglia, offering architecture, engineering, quantity surveying and CDM consultancy, with RIBA Chartered offices in the Norfolk, Cambridge and Winchester.

Our award-winning practice provides flexible and effective design solutions and we have a reputation of combining high quality designs with a first class service.

What Makes Us Different

At Chaplin Farrant, we put the client at the heart of everything we do.  In all aspects of our work, we aim to consistently exceed your expectations and provide a personalised customer service.

By focusing on the needs and aspirations of our clients, we build long-term lasting relationships, with clients returning to work with us year after year.  Our high repeat business levels demonstrate the trust and confidence that we gain from our clients and evidences our ability to deliver exceptional customer service for projects that are delivered on time, on budget whilst also exceeding expectations.

The multi-disciplinary nature of our practice allows the process of budget costings, value engineering and cost reporting to be streamlined and delivered more efficiently than when it has to be co-ordinated between external consultants.

Even when not commissioned on a project, our engineers and cost consultants can provide valuable advice, enabling us to provide pragmatic, value for money designs.

Our head office in Norwich is an RIBA Chartered Practice, and is organised into ‘studios’ that work collaboratively and cooperatively on projects together. Headed up by the lead architect, each studio is open plan enabling informal discussions and coordination amongst a project’s team. Using the latest digital technologies, we provide innovation through continuous improvement and investment and set the benchmark for design, professional service and performance across the region.

With a friendly and approachable manner, we provide honest and straightforward design advice. Our employees are professional and knowledgeable and receive full training and support for their continuous professional development. 

Testament to our success as a practice is our high client satisfaction levels, with clients returning to Chaplin Farrant time and again with their development projects over many years or decades.
