The National Memorial Arboretum

This project of designing the 31 Squadron Memorial was a great honour for our team to undertake. The memorial was a gift from the 31 Squadron Association and marked the 100th Anniversary since its formation .

The design features a cream-coloured granite star which represents the 31 Squadrons emblem and the gold star of India. On the front face of the star the squadrons insignia was engraved, along with the wide array of aircraft flown, represented by silhouettes, which were recessed and infilled black. On the rear of the star the squadron insignia, surrounded by those who received battle honours, were inscribed. The star sits on a dark green granite base which represents the dark green background to 31 Squadrons gold star emblem. The names of the 31 Squadron commanding officers and associated committee founding members are engraved in gold lettering to the front of the base, whilst the rear features a list of squadron bases.

What our clients say...

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

In my opinion, the best Architectural services in Lincoln. SRA completed amendments to our planning application and incorporated the redesign of 8 houses. The application was immediately approved which has avoided costly delays. The new house design has added value to the project and will provide much better use of the space. SRA have my highest recommendation for projects both large and small.

SP3 Developments Ltd

Highly recommend, Niell at SRA fully appreciated the need to balance the history of the house, conservation area requirements and modern living in the design for our renovation and extension requirements.

Mandy, Residential Client

I found SRA Architecture online as I was looking at purchasing a property and needed input from an Architectural Practice who knows the area. I came across these guys and I was very impressed with the amount of knowledge they had. Neill is very much approachable and goes out of his way to find out all the information, and this in turn gave me the confidence of whether to make the purchase or not – I highly recommend them.

Antony, Residential Client

It is wonderful to see such an excellent facility completed and for it to be able to offer education and childcare to our community.

Richard Wells, Parish Council Chairman

Niell and team did a great job with plans and 3D graphics.  As I struggle to visualise, the graphics allowed me to get a realistic image. Having Niell deal with the planning department takes away the stress and their knowledge and experience is invaluable. They were very patient as we couldn’t always make up our minds. Thanks guys, great job.
