About Us


C3 Design Limited was established in 2004 by Mark Benzie, an architect who specialises in residential design, development and project management.


We only work in sectors where we can demonstrate a track record of successfully delivered projects. Our largest construction project in terms of construction cost is £1 million with the highest end value being £4.25 million. We have successfully achieved planning consent for schemes of up to 115 dwellings.


We’re still a small business, preferring to work efficiently and make the most of our contacts, rather than pursuing growth that would dilute our service and reputation. We’re passionate about construction and property, but most of all value good relationships with clients, suppliers and contractors.
