The latest planning concerns for commercial properties have been sustainability, stakeholder consultation and neighbourhood issues.


As such, you need an architect who understands the pressures and priorities of commercial sites. A well designed building with efficient interior planning can add significant value to your business.


These are all matters in which Loren Design has considerable experience. We have the capacity to handle the responsibility that is required to handle commercial projects of varying size.
