Leonard Design Architects

Specialist IT consultancy and support for international architects

Leonard Design undertake an array of design services to deliver a wide variety of projects across a range of scales. Remarkable design is at the heart of their business model and SP1 have been providing IT support including project management and consultancy since 2014.

The business started off as a small practice with a handful of people and as the company grew so did the requirement for specialist IT knowledge and support to help the business navigate towards growth. The directors at Leonard Design embarked on engaging with several external IT providers, basing their decision on three key components identified to enable plans for growth.

Key Components – Why LDA chose SP1 as their external IT partner

Firstly they required a level of reactive support for business continuity. If something happens to a machine or piece of software, they need those issues resolved proactively with minimal downtime. In order to satisfy these requirements they needed to procure an IT firm with a level of knowledge and competency to know how to solve these issues as and when they arise.

Next was the introduction of a proactive and strategic level of consultancy. LDA needed to make IT decisions today that would allow them to grow into the infrastructure they desired to become: they were making decisions for 40 people when they only had 10. Working with Stef and SP1 made the growth less painful.

Finally, SP1 helped Leonard Design to address issues where systems weren’t fit for the size they wanted to become, e.g phone and email. This enabled Leonard Design to make a big leap in establishing an infrastructure which would allow them to expand. They now have 5 offices globally.
