R&D tax credits for architects

Start Claiming for your R&D Tax Credits

Architecture is a key area which often spans the theoretical mathematical design of a building and the physical construction. Although many architectural projects will follow know patterns, with new materials becoming available, the desire to build the most visual yet operational building and government legislation the role of architects is spanning into that of engineering more and more.

It is these activities where architects are not designing to known variables but seeking to research and often benchmark new variables be it, materials, location, fundamental structural designs, and collaborations with civil engineering forms to overcome geographical obstacles, where a claim for R&D tax relief may lie.

  • Development of a solar shading system that helps reduce heat gain.
  • Development of in house software to assist computational design.
  • Development of software to link geometry and analysis tools.
