Lees Associates have been using Building Information Modelling (BIM) software for over 25 years. We work with ARCHICAD – a software package that was developed specifically for the architecture industry. Our clients enjoy the benefits of BIM - the efficient delivery of a highly coordinated design - whenever they work with us. The 3D model also opens the door to a range of CGI visualisation possibilities.

The Lees Associates team is energetic, enthusiastic and committed. We believe in offering young architects, technicians and designers the opportunity to develop their professional skills while working on a diverse range of challenging and interesting projects. Located next to London’s famous Borough Market, we are specialists in our field and have established a proud reputation to deliver the finest quality to our discerning clients.
