The Christopher Hunt Practice (CHP) is owned by Christopher Hunt as a sole trader. The
practice was formed in about 1980 offering Architectural Services to the public and the trade on a part time
basis. In the mid eighties, Christopher Hunt left the Planning Dept. of Wycombe District Council to become
fully self employed and to concentrate on the expanding business. The Practice expanded in the late eighties
to a small family team of 3 Technicians. In 1992 the Practice consolidated due to the recession and is again
run by Christopher Hunt as a sole trader with contract assistance from his father (also an Architectural
Technician) at peak times. CHP is a successful Practice due to the variety of design work undertaken and is
capable of absorbing most development trends.
Christopher Hunt is a qualified Architectural Technologist and is a full member of
C.I.A.T (The Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists). Christopher will give a 'no nonsense' approach to
design advice and has a reputation for being blunt and 'telling it like it is'. Christopher is prepared to lose a
commission from a client for stating his honest opinion on design and Planning matters rather than to offer false
hope on a dubious project. CHP has built a very substantial client base over the last 30 years which has
proved to be invaluable in maintaining demand for Architectural Services without the need for any major
advertising. Christopher sincerely believes that client satisfaction and offering best value is the key for a
sustainable and continued business success.
The common misused term for a person offering Architectural services is an 'Architect'. CHP
is not an Architect as this term is protected by Royal Charter but he is a fully qualified Architectural
Technologist. Our professional body C.I.A.T. (formerly BIAT) qualifies Chartered Architectural Technologists
& professionally qualified Architectural Technicians. We have a strict code of conduct and must maintain a high
degree of professionalism and professional indemnity insurance.
Over the years, CHP has dealt with a diverse and varied range of buildings, extensions,
conversions and rehabilitations. From the simplest porch to listed barn conversions; loft conversions; swimming
pool complexes; single storey to 3 storey extensions; new houses from single plots to select developments; domestic
and commercial etc. have all been catered for by CHP.
