About Us

How our expert team and bespoke architectural services set us apart in delivering your vision.

A bit about our founder

Wouter De Jager arrived in the UK from South Africa at the age of 18 to work as a carpenter. He was successful, and he quickly progressed to more senior roles across the Construction Industry.

  • Site manager
  • Contract Manager
  • Building Surveyor
  • Manager/Owner of Commercial Interiors firm

Whilst doing the above, he moved to Maidenhead with his wife to start a family and somehow found time to study and gain a Building Surveying Honours Degree at The University of Reading.

Maidenhead Planning

Wouter currently manages Maidenhead Planning as a Building Surveyor and Architectural Designer, in addition to undertaking property development and project management roles.

Importantly, he has worked on all three sides of the project:

  • As a Contractor
  • As a Designer
  • Representing the Client

He believes this gives him the required set of specialist skills to bring to your project. He can design something that is realistic and buildable (Contractor experience), aesthetically pleasing and functional (Design experience), that adds value while meeting the budget (Client's representative).
