Cruikshank & Seward

The architectural practice of Cruikshank and Seward are very much active in 2009.  Their web site says of them, "Cruickshank and Seward was founded as an Architectural Practice in Manchester in 1923 and carries out commissions both regionally and throughout the UK.  The Practice has extensive experience in a wide range of sectors, notably Education, Healthcare, Residential, Industrial and Listed Building Conservation.  Projects range from minor works and adaptations through to major new-build projects with a variety of procurement methods."  Their conservation work has included the Buxton Opera House and the Chinese Arch.
