Samuel Stevenson & Son

Chartered Architects

Samuel Stevenson & Sons was founded in 1886 and is the longest established Architectural Practice in Northern Ireland. Originally based in Royal Avenue, Belfast the Practice now operates from offices bought in 1972 in Greenwood Avenue,  Belfast. To remain successful over such a long period of time the Practice has had to adapt to changing market demands and procurement methods whilst steadfastly pursuing a policy of professionalism to Clients and Consultants alike.

The firm is a medium sized practice with two Chartered Architect Directors, Mark Reid and Clare Ogle.

In deliberately avoiding a ‘house style’ Samuel Stevenson & Sons offers a flexible approach to the design process, free of preconceptions, resulting in tailored designs to meet the most exacting requirements of individual Clients. 

We have our own in–house Integrated Management System in accordance with ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 which is audited biannually by SGS United Kingdom limited.

On each Project the Architectural team remains with the Project for its duration ensuring that Staff are are fully conversant with the day to day issues of the design, tendering and construction processes.

The size of the Practice allows individual Directors the opportunity to retain an ongoing relationship with Clients on Projects from project commencement to completion. ensuring continuity of service.
