About Gerard Kelly Architects

Gerard Kelly Architects is a Salisbury based practice set up in 2001 by Gerry Kelly, a chartered architect with a wealth of experience gained on a very broad range of projects of every type.

The principal, Gerard Kelly BSc(Hons) RIBA CIArb FRSA, is a chartered architect with more than forty years experience in the UK construction industry gained on projects af every size and type.

The smallest of his previous projects have been worth just a few thousand pounds and the largest was a £56½ million pound town centre redevelopment project in north London, involving a new road/rail interchange for Transport London, the refurbishment of a large open market (whilst it remained open) a very large fitness centre with two swimming pools and a diving pool, and a number of commercial stores.

We have worked on:
  • Residential (individual private houses as well as designs for private and local authority apartment blocks)
  • Commercial
  • Industrial, and Health Sector Projects

He has also worked on churches and other places of worship; and recently designed the new Bournemouth Mortuary.

Gerard Kelly Architects offer a broad range of services.

Gerard Kelly became fascinated by architecture at the age of 11, when he found a book about American architect Frank Lloyd Wright in his school library.

He walked into an architect's office when he was 16 and, presenting a thick portfolio of technical drawings and sketches done at home, asked for a job!

He was offered a one week trial and left that firm many years later, having gained a very broad of skills on all kinds of buildings. That breadth of experience served him very well when he later embarked on a course of study that led to his qualification and membership of the Royal Institute of British Architects.

Gerard Kelly has provided acoustic design consultancy work to other architects, performance spaces and rehearsal facilities for over thirty years.

He has been interested in acoustics for as long as he can remember, because it brings together the his greatest loves; architecture and music.

As a student, for his final design these, he designed a large theatre for the former Festival of Britain site in Battersea Park. It included a main auditorium and a studio theatre as well as a large recording studio complex.

Gerard Kelly has designed interiors for many of his clients over the years, from small items of fitted furniture in dressing rooms and other areas, to large spaces for commercial buildings.

The reception space in a large headquarters building in Reading for a major mobile network operator.

The interior design of the two storey reception area included a specially created spiral staircase leading to a first floor level footbridge which merges into the purpose made reception desk.

Dispute Resolution
Gerard Kelly has had more than twenty years in dispute resolution, since he started working on a major dispute with the (then) largest contractor in the country.

He spent two years working alongside some of the UK construction industry's most expert solicitors, project managers and arbitrators in the country, on a 2½ million claim - he now sees that this was the best possible apprenticeship in this fascinating area of the construction industry. He became an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators in 2002.

Since that first experience, he has helped many people to reach agreement against some, often very aggressive, claims on all sizes of projects.

We will always be happy to take a look at whatever problems you are facing, without charge, to help you to determine whether we may be able to assist you in reaching agreement with the other party.

GKA were wonderful in helping us to bring our dreams to life in the form of a small but very cleverly designed extension to our house. He always responded very quickly to queries, whether from us or from our contractor; Gerry believes that "work on site always takes priority".
