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...

Neill at SRA Architecture has been amazingly professional and supportive throughout, advising on different packages to help budget effectively and offering a service that helps take away a lot of the stress and workload when doing a large renovation project.

Ben, Residential Client

The designs that SRA produced were outstanding. The layout works perfect and the specification is exactly what we were after! SRA oversaw the whole project through to completion and ensured the building was delivered as expected.

Residential Client

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

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 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

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.
