Roots is establishing Archivan (TM) - a mobile office that will allow the practice to visit more rural communities to host a continuing series of design surgeries. These events make a professional service accessible by ‘moving the office to the customer’ and offering free advice about any projects which the public might have. These could include private houses, public buildings, renovations, new builds or future projects and cover everything from design, drawing, Planning Permission, Building Warrant approval, the construction process, craft, materials, low/zero carbon technology and energy efficiency.
Since winning their Shell LiveWIRE Grand Ideas Award, Roots Design Workshop has also been crowned Shell Live Young Entrepreneur of the Year (Scotland) 2010.
