Wide, UK and International Experience
We have wide experience working across all sectors, both in the UK and abroad, bringing best in class practice and design to benefit your project.
Because we have worked on so many different building types, from single family homes to major hospitals, from office interiors to major cultural projects and from sports venues to interiors and master plans, we are able to bring this wealth of experience to bear for our clients. We have detailed experience of working in dense city centres with multiple local historic buildings issues on complex projects involving multiple stakeholders. We have worked abroad as well as in the UK, and this diversity of experience geographically and between sectors allows us to deliver "best in class” design responses and solutions for you.
Understanding and developing your brief
We have tried and tested processes to allow us to work closely with you to define what you need and to assess the design against your brief.
The breadth and depth of our experience allows us to work closely with you to define clearly your brief. By developing and testing this with you, through workshops, seminars, informal reviews and formal document submissions, we are able to describe a key set of ideas that must be achieved for your project. We like to understand you and your requirements fully so that the brief accurately reflects what is best for you.
Team management - delivering on cost and time
We specialise in design team leadership and management to deliver a co-ordinated and innovative design on time and budget.
By working with the very best consultant teams we have developed simple but powerful processes and systems ranging from issue analysis, action tracking, design programming and workshops to ensure that micro and major milestones are met and that your project is delivered on time and on budget.
Beautifully crafted and finely detailed
We choose the right materials for your project and detail them beautifully to produce something unique, long lasting and sustainable.
We care about our designs right down to the materials used, how they are detailed and methods used for construction. We maximise off site production, use samples, mock-ups and prototypes to test and refine our designs, we work with the best craftsmen and specialists to deliver our designs. We understand the construction process and produce working drawings that contractors can use, that communicate clearly and that minimise waste.
Sustainable and award winning design
We deliver fully sustainable designs and strive to create award winning buildings for our clients.
We think differently; we approach each project asking fundamental questions about your brief, site and programme. This attention to the essence of your project coupled with our belief in a simple elegant and logical approach to design that celebrates a true coordination of architecture, structure and services produces an aesthetic suited to the challenges of living, working and playing in today's world. By being creative we benefit both you and the world at the same time.
Advanced full 3D CAD, visualisation and BIM capabilities
We use the most sophisticated software to deliver fully coordinated, testable, digital models for our clients.
Full 3D and BIM capabilities mean we can manage projects from the smallest to the largest delivering full digital coordination, rapid prototyping, clash detection and other pre-construction digital testing functions to reduce errors, maximise coordination, reduce waste, reduce site construction time and allow follow on Facilities Management functions to work seamlessly on handover.
