Providing professional design & contract management services for building projects throughout the North East

Our History

The practice of Elder Lester was founded in 1956 and grew rapidly during the 1950s and 1960s. Major projects carried out included Billingham and Thornaby Town Centres and The Billingham Forum, the first integrated leisure and sport facility in Europe. In 1974 the practice relocated to Eastry House in Yarm from offices in Billingham and Middlesbrough. A further move to The Granary took place in 1986 and then in 1997 to our present location at Reed's Mill, Yarm.

Our Company

Elder Lester Architects are a mid-sized practice based in Yarm, with a well-established client base in the North East and North Yorkshire. Continuous relationships with these clients new & old, has allowed us to work on multiple projects not only in these locations, but up & down the country. Our passionate staff are committed to a design lead approach to architecture. Current projects range from small domestic projects to multi-million pound commercial lead projects.

Our Projects

The Practice has a full understanding and appreciation of the commercial pressures imposed on clients and from our wealth of knowledge from residential, commercial, industrial, public sector, leisure and education projects we aim to share this to further our clients aspirations and define well designed and cost effective buildings.
