Herlig Marles explain how the funding from Enterprising Worcestershire accelerated their Worcester based Architects practice

Anita and Vanessa met after coming from big practise’s and decided to form their own architects in Worcester called Herlig Marles.

Anita specialised in using 2D CAD software, whilst Vanessa mainly worked with 3D. They were keen to bring the two together, but found it difficult to get going with a lack of finance. As a result, they looked around for available funding, which is when they came across Enterprising Worcestershire – a European Regional Development Funded programme.

The County Council helped to make the application stages simple and when Herlig Marles received funding, it gave them a leg up and from then it accelerated how quickly they could work on projects together.

After being granted the funding, they found that the computerised designs system they had bought could be used with virtual reality goggles which made them realise the potential was immense. They’ve received amazing reactions from clients and are now even taking the goggles to careers fairs to entertain and encourage young people who are interested in Architecture as a career path. 

Anita says that they couldn’t of possibly purchased the equipment and software at the get go. The funding from Enterprising Worcestershire was a tremendous help to Herlig Marles which has helped them grow to the next level.
