Architects & Surveyors based in West Wales

Originally founded as a practice of architects in Pembrokeshire almost 50 years ago, PDL now also offers, amongst other construction disciplines, building and quantity surveying and as such is unique in West Wales.


With over 50 awards for our work to date the practice has an excellent track record, amongst clients and our peer architects in Wales and the UK of successfully delivering a wide range of private and public sector commissions with respect function, cost, quality and time whilst creating buildings of striking aesthetics but with a pragmatic and sustainable approach to construction.


Our professional ethic as one of the leading architects in Wales for our size of practice is to encourage a team approach to problem solving on every project, large or small, and to involve the client in the process wherever possible and our modus operandi is always flexible and analysis based.


One of our directors is one of only a handful of UK construction professionals who has dual RIBA/RICS membership, is a past RSAW, architects in Wales President, and is an Advocate in Practice for the Design Commission for Wales and we also have on our staff of architects in Pembrokeshire one of only 5 Specialist Conservation Architects in Wales, who is at the very top of the RIBA Conservation Register for eligibility to work on all types of listed and scheduled structures throughout the UK. We regularly work throughout West Wales and beyond and have vast experience of dealing with challenging planning issues, especially in National Parks, and we continually strive to excite, educate and inspire our clients on every project we undertake.


Er yn bennaf penseiri yn Sir Benfro, mae chwarter o’n staff yn siarad Cymraeg, felly ar gyfer unrhyw gleient sy’n dymuno cynnal busnes a fydd yn y Gymraeg byddwn yn hapus I wneud hynny.


Although principally architects in Pembrokeshire, a quarter of our staff are Welsh speakers, so for any client who wishes to conduct business ‘yn y gymraeg’ the practice will be happy to do so.


Quite simply we listen, we create, we deliver.
