The Practice

BBF Fielding Ltd

About Us

BBF Fielding Limited is the product of a merger of Maurice Fielding Associates and BBF Consultancy Group that took place in 2000. The Company can trace its origins back to 1961 when the founder, Maurice L. Fielding, formed his practice in Woking.

The firm has traded continuously since that date and it has evolved into its current establishment. The Company Directors are Ray Freeland, Nigel Oliver, Simon Tedrake and Will Park. Anthony Fielding maintains the family connection by acting as a consultant to the practice. A team of qualified architects, technologist and administrative staff support the directors.

The full range of professional services offered by the practice is always tailored to suit the individual needs of the client. From initial appraisals to the provision of full management services, we can advise on design, procurement, cost control and contract administration.

Due to the variety of past and present projects in its portfolio BBF Fielding is proud to call itself a “general practice”. Examples of our work are shown in the Projects section of this website
