Neil Railton (MCIAT)

  • Founder and Principle of Blink Architecture
  • 20+ Architectural design experience
  • Full Member of the Chartered Institute of Architecture Technologists CIAT

Neil’s architectural career began in 1999 with the Local Authority where he delivered a multitude of projects spanning a broad range of values and complexity including accessibility adaptations for disabled and elderly clients. 

Moving into the private sector in 2008, Neil worked on residential, healthcare and commercial projects. 

Throughout his career, Neil felt that his natural skill for adapting a more personalised approach when it came to working with clients seemed to be unique and he felt his clients deserved this as a fundamental part of the service.  So, in 2014, Neil formed Blink Architecture with this very personalised approach at the core of the business.
