After a previous successful funding round with Crowd2fund and perfect repayment history, leading architectural practice BRL (Burke Richards) is back. Established for over 20 years, they have become a nationally recognised specialist in architectural design for sports and leisure, as well as residential and commercial sectors. They design unique and sustainable buildings for large development projects. The funds raised from this campaign will go towards a development project which is currently in progress.

We deliver designs that inspire, connect and perform.

With over twenty years of experience, we at Burke Rickhards have worked hard to earn ourselves a great reputation in our field of work in the architecture industry. We have been a strong network of relationships with our clients and have been heavily involved in the sports and leisure sector. We were even named 'Expert Advisor' in 1996 for the Sports Council Lottery Fund of England. We operate in the commercial and residential industries, working on hotels, restaurants, offices, warehousing and health facilities, to name a few. We've built numerous leisure centres around the UK, the Millbay Marina, the Hounslow Travel Lodge and the multi-faith Maqam Centre.

We’re passionate about the environment and are always creatively seeking solutions for low carbon emissions and support benchmark schemes like BREEAM and the Code for Sustainable Homes. Our company is also ISO 14001 registered for environmental management.

From architecture to interior designers, project managers to cost consultants, we cover the entire process from conception to completion. By providing our customers with all-inclusive services, we ensure they get the very best from us, and that they are happy with our services.

We have made huge investments in personnel and new technology, to advance our capabilities which in turn have substantially improved throughout the decades. We now operate on a national level.

We are incredibly pleased with how far we have grown with you on our journey and cannot wait to further continue this with you. The funds raised for this campaign will go towards supporting our current active project.

Although COVID-19 reduced revenues and staff did go on furlough, the construction sector remained open during COVID-19. Most of the reduction in revenue has now been recovered. They have been offered a revenue loan by Crowd2Fund to allow flexibility and evidence has been provided of the scope of work for the pre-existing project. They have a number of projects underway and there is sufficient security across an £18m property portfolio, however this is a non secured loan.

Credit Risk Comments:
The director is providing a personal guarantee, this means that if the business fails the directors become personally liable for the loan. The directors is a homeowner, however this does not ensure there are sufficient assets should the loan need to be recovered. There have been no CCJs for the business or directors. There will be cross company guarantees with Chromeart Ltd and Devcor Properties.


Business keeps the raised amount even if target is not met.
