Pride Road Architects is a women owned UK-wide franchise practice – or business in a box – started by Lisa Raynes in 2016.
“Headquartered in Manchester, we specialise in turning houses into dream homes, whether by adding a room, reconfiguring the existing space, or doing a two-storey extension. So, if your space isn’t working for you, and moving isn’t possible get in touch and see how we could improve it!”
The foundations of Pride Road Architects are based on empowering women architects who have faced pay and career disparities.
“We recognise that women architects have the ambition and appetite for their own practices, and also welcome being part of group, a ‘pride’ if you like.
“Our franchisees can jump straight into marketing their architecture services, because they already have brand recognition and strong digital assets. These things are set up as part of the comprehensive and enjoyable onboarding process, and backed by the central office team of business coaching, technicals, IT and marketing specialists.
“Working together is fundamental to how we do business, building a network of trusted property industry professionals.”
Pride Road often hosts Constructive Together networking events with the goal of building a roster of referral partners – do get in touch with Lisa if you’d like to come along sometime and meet everyone. This International Women’s Day, Helen Reddy’s iconic song is on our minds… We are women, Hear us roar!
“I created Pride Road to share my knowledge and business model with any architect who would like to follow in my footsteps and have a good income with a much better balance between their home life and profession.” Lisa Raynes
