Training, Research and Development

DJD Architects have begun an ambitious programme of training, research and development.

Beginning in November 2016, DJD Architects aim to invest five percent of architectural staff time in a programme of research, investigation and learning, involving all architectural team members. The programme aims to develop a body of specialist knowledge within the Practice; improve the way we work so that we are more effectie; increase the sharing of knowledge amongst the team; and assist the professional development of individual team members. This will enrich our architectural projects bringing additional value for our clients.
