Meet our core team members
Niell Bayes
Managing Director

Niell developed an interest in Architecture aged 11 and after completing A-levels, joined Stephen Roberts Associates as an apprentice in 1987. Whilst attending Lincoln College on a day release basis to complete courses over the next five years was necessary to attain formal qualifications, it was the extensive in-house training that was delivered by senior colleagues, with expertise in different disciplines, that was most valuable. Niell was promoted to the role of Associate in 2001 and to Junior Partner in 2005. With the retirement of two co-directors in December of 2010, Niell became the Practice’s Managing Director.

Being committed to the Practice for over 33 years, Niell strives to uphold the core values on which the Practice was founded, to broaden knowledge and understanding of design and construction and to embrace new technologies and advancements within the sector as a whole.

Jack
Architectural Technician (ACIAT)

Jack joined SRA Architecture as an apprentice in 2016 when he was 17. After achieving distinctions in NVQ Level 3, BTEC Level 3, HNC and HND qualifications, Jack has recently qualified as an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT). With a serious interest and director level support on a one-to-one basis, Jack has made rapid progress and has been involved in a wide variety of projects in different sectors, including having a significant role in the development of our detailed drawings and the contract administration relating to a new £1.6 million Sixth Form Centre.

Jacks’ broad base of learning and educational studies allow him to produce highly detailed technical drawings and comprehensive written specifications, whilst his knowledge of project management aids administering contracts. Jack continues to push himself and is currently working his way to achieving full Chartership with CIAT.

What our clients say...

We have been working with Niell and his team at SRA in redesigning an existing planning passed house design. We have found them to be highly efficient, offering good choice of recommendations and proposals and very easy and pleasant to work with. The brief had to take place within a short period of time and the team were very accommodating with this, especially in difficult Covid times. I would highly recommend using SRA for future plans.

Jennifer, Residential Client

SRA Architecture worked for us on two different occasions & projects, a small one and a bigger scale project. They were advising, helpful, great at planning, very knowledgeable and always kept us updated. I would definitely recommend!

Jenny, Residential Client

SRA have designed new houses and building alterations on a number of projects we have tendered for and worked on over the past 20 years or so. Their plans and specifications are consistently clear and thorough and the architectural work in the construction phase has been excellent. I have found them to be one of the leading practices we have worked with throughout this time.

Residential Client

I have worked with quite a few architectural practices over the years, I can honestly say SRA are in the top draw category of design companies. Their designs and drawings are of a really high standard. They are thorough and methodical. Their specifications leave little to doubt which means you can precisely quote for what you are being asked to build. […] Plus they are nice people, professional and easy to work for.

Matt, Builder

SRA Architecture have made so much difference – we now have six parking/pull-in spaces with our own filter lane taking the school traffic away from the lane, leaving it free for the residents and through traffic including emergency vehicles.

Clare Dawson, School Business Manager

Niell provided me one of the most professional services I have received. The quality of service was outstanding, Niell answered the phone every time and answered any questions I had the same day whether by email or phone. The plot I was looking at was also of a beautiful design. I would confidently recommend anyone to use SRA Architecture.
