Established towards the end of 2015 by Kevin Smith, Contour Designs is an independent privately owned architectural consultancy and design practice serving Canvey Island and the vicinity whose aim is to provide a personal service to the public and private sectors. Kevin is supported by his son, Simon Cope; who, having run his own private practice for 11 years and has been employed in public and private practices, including a development company, brings a solid understanding of the area to the design team. Providing overall depth to the Company, Kevin and Simon are joined by Carl Brampton, bringing expert knowledge of the design and build process to the team. Concluding the administrative and financial management aspects of the Company, Kevin is also joined by his son Alexander Cope-Norris who serves as a co-director and member of the board.

The creative and innovative in-house design team utilise the latest CAD software available and 3D modelling software. This ensures that all concepts can be presented to clients, financiers, planners and the professional team (where necessary) in a three dimensional virtual built form, maximising understanding at every level. Designs can be brought to life by creating fully rendered models, where developments can be viewed in an ‘as built’ form from any angle or view. Take a walk through the building or fly around the development. The essence of the design is there for all to see. The result is a seamless progression from inception to detail design where the client and their team will have total confidence.
