Karting at Go-Karting

Cracking office session at Go-Karting on Friday night. Lots of fun and really brought out the competitive spirit that clearly surges through the office. Turns out every 100th of a second does count….there’s a thought for the time sheets. Thanks to Craig for organising it all.

We are recruiting a new office manager. As the practice continues to grow we recognise the importance of this role and are looking for someone who will bring energy and ideas to the team. Applicants will need to be a highly motivated personable individual, able to develop and implement the existing systems that keep the practice productive.

Snug is a special place to work. This is how Hannah, our previous office manager described working here, ‘Snug has a special culture, made up of a talented team who are all passionate about what they do. This is a rarity in many companies.  Coming to work was never a chore, it was always fun and exciting which is something to be proud of.

If you think the role would bring out the best in you please send in your CV.

Watch out, the Part 1’s are about….

To refurbish or knock down, that is the question

Thursday, July 7th, 2016


These are initial sketches for a new house we are designing in Petersfield, Hampshire. We are currently exploring options for either an extensive refurbishment of the existing property or its replacement with a new build house. This is always a difficult judgement that requires careful financial analysis at the front end. Not only does a new build house offer greater opportunities for creating a bespoke design, it is also likely to achieve a higher end value once complete and there is no VAT to pay. The question, as always, is will it stack up to knock the existing house down? Watch this space….
