"Rio Architects are a break from tradition. They actually listen to what you want and try hard to create it in a way that is contemporary and, yes, exciting. It is like going to a tailor to fit for a suit – the end product is a bespoke product and not off-the-peg that is made to fit you. In the same way, Rio design buildings that have a unique flavour to them that are different from the rest. They are passionate about design and show great attention to detail. Enthusiasm is their middle name."

"The official opening of the Cancer Genetics building by the first minister will be on 2nd December 2010. We are settling in nicely and it is by far the best building on this campus, inside and out. I hope you can join us at the opening and get the chance to talk to some of the people who are enjoying the privilege of working in your creation."







Professor Julian Sampson - Head of the Institute of Medical Genetics at Cardiff University

"Thanks to Rio Architects our new engineering facility has definitely put us on the map and raised our profile. The Rio team paid great attention to detail and worked closely with us ensuring all our needs were incorporated into the design yet still ensuring the facility looked stylish and contemporary.  With  its  high BREEAM rating it supports TWI’s Health, Safety and Environmental policy, assisting TWI to achieve their goals of retaining their current BS EN ISO 14001:2004 certification and attaining the OHSAS 18001:2007 certification."

Philip WallaceRegional Manager TWI Technology Centre (Wales)

"I have sat and read and reflected on the professional way the application has been put together. The team, especially Rio, has been outstanding in presenting a fully justified argument.  A major highlight was the presentation to CABE, which won over a body who can be very difficult.  One of the pleasures and delights of this project has been working with your team. Nothing has been too much trouble and you delivered time after time on requests and to deadlines."


Patrick Dempsey – Regional Development Manger - UNITE

“The successful completion of our new Green Office is a testimony to the skill and dedication of Rio architects in bringing this ground breaking project to life. Not only has it achieved the highest ever BREEAM Rating, but it is a truly beautiful building.
