James Ritchie left the firm of Mauchlen Weightman & Elphick in February 1999 to form his own architectural practice. Since then JRA have undertaken a broad range of both architectural and planningsupervisor/CDM-C commissions across the North of England of various size and complexity. We specialise in the areas of Architectural Lighting Design, Listed Building Work, Construction Risk Management, Sustainable Architecture and Renewable Energy Projects.
Based close to Newcastle Airport in Ponteland, the practice is ideally located to serve clients in Newcastle upon Tyne, Gateshead, Northumberland, Durham, Chester le Street, Sunderland and the TyneValley. While working locally in Gosforth and Jesmond, projects are ongoing as far afield as Malton in North Yorkshire and Falkirk in Scotland.
In 2011, and with over twenty years experience in Architecture, Mark established his own practice focussing on delivering affordable but sustainable design solutions, regardless of the size ofproject. At MSCA we believe that each project is unique and strive to ensure that every client receives a focussed yet friendly service.
