About us

ACS Architectural Ltd. was established in February 2013 by its founder Chris Borrmann with the backing of confident investors. The practice started within a small back room in a shared office in Hunstanton, Norfolk. The business expanded quickly with Chris’ brother Nick joining the practice initially part time before continuing full time.

By this stage ACS Architectural Ltd. had completed a wide range of projects across West Norfolk and established itself as a professional architectural practice providing a high-quality service to its clients.


Chris’ father David joined the company in August 2017 to assist with everyday office administration, turning the practice into a family business.

With an expanding workforce and an office no longer fit for purpose, the practice moved to larger premises in 2018, still in Hunstanton, before again moving to the current office in Snettisham, Norfolk in 2021. To this day ACS Architectural Ltd. continues to expand and grow its work force by offering apprenticeships to individuals looking for a career within architecture.
