Grayston Alan & Durtnell

Chartered Architects

The Practice

Grayston Alan Durtnell was founded in the early 1960’s by Prudence Durtnell, who was joined in 1976 by David Grayston and Harvey Alan. The three combined technical and design expertise with good local knowledge and attention to detail. Indeed Sir Winston Churchill would not be sitting on the Green at Westerham, had not the Practice firstly obtained planning permission and secondly designed a suitable plinth!

Following the retirement of the founding partners, Michael Mamalis took over as Principal of the Practice in 2000. With extensive experience gained across a broad range of sectors, Michael has continued to develop the Practice, which has a well deserved reputation for good design and cost-effective project management.

The Practice has a wide portfolio of experience including:

Planning: Extensive experience in dealing with difficult/sensitive planning issues and has been successful in achieving approval for sites in Greenbelt areas, for example, Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation Development Centre in Leatherhead, Bramblings Residential Home, Longfield, a number of residences in the heart of Kensington’s’ Conservation Area and for several residences in the Sevenoaks area.

Listed Buildings: The Practice is experienced in working with Listed Buildings and recently obtained two Listed Building consents on the Royal Oak Tap in Sevenoaks.

Residential / Domestic: Projects range from £30,000 to £xxxxxx, including new build and conversion.

Education: Extensive experience working with schools in the independent and state sectors, including those in Listed Buildings.

Care: Experience in the charity and residential homes sectors. Good working knowledge of the Care Standards, Disability Discrimination Act and other legislation relating to these areas.

Industrial / Commercial: Key recent projects include a £6million factory for Princes’ Foods at Chichester and developments for Davis Garages in Sevenoaks, Warehousing for T.D.G. Pinnacle, Commercial Projects for Berkeley Business Centres.

Pub, Hotel and Leisure: Hotel work for the Bromley Court Hotel and Health Club refurbishment for P.A. Consulting, Greenbelt and Listed Building Consents for the Royal Oak Tap, Sevenoaks and Royal Oak, Staffhurst Wood.
