The Department has strong links with architectural practices and the RIBA nationally and regionally, and works closely with the Huddersfield Society of Architects wherever possible. It also has close links to the construction industry.

The approximate cost of these items is estimated at around £500. Costs may vary based on the materials you choose and the approximate costs are given as a guide only.
