During this period of Lock-down, Journeyman Draughting are carrying on as usual, most of my work is done from home anyway. I can still survey the exterior of a building and if the client can provide a measured sketch of the interior, or if you still have the estate agents rather crude plan of the interior and the room sizes, we can proceed.

Note; One probable effect of this extended lock-down is that some people find that they can work from home part of the time and save themselves the time and cost of commuting. This will cause a measurable downturn in the demand for office space and some offices to be converted to residential use.

All drawings and images shown are by Charles Board unless otherwise noted, some images were produced whilst working for Project Design Partnership, Fabric Architecture Ltd or Nicholas de Jong Associates.
