Expertise

We have extensive experience across a wide range of urban and greenfield sites. Including bids for public land and strategic sites, reclaimed land, extensions into green belt land and sensitive environmental and conservation area sites.

Our experience in large scale regeneration projects means that we know what works commercially as well as in design terms. Getting the basic development right underpins the viability of any scheme; careful phasing benefits cash flow; this ensures that our projects are deliverable and not speculative.

We undertake feasibilities, land and property portfolio appraisals, and detailed urban design context analysis including strategic input into emerging planning policy and site allocations.

We prepare comprehensive Pre-Application submissions, Outline and Full Planning Applications directly managing and coordinating the design team, stakeholder engagement and consultation. Our planning services include preparation of Design and Access Statements, Visual Impact Assessments, Heritage Statements, and design input and coordination for Environmental Impact Assessments.

We have hands on experience working within local neighbourhoods through public consultation and participation which engages everyone in the design process. We work closely with stakeholders and councillors to ensure that we understand local sensitivities, expectation and ambition and respond positively throughout the development process.

Our success in winning Planning Permissions stems from analysing and understanding the constraints and opportunities of each particular site to generate a specific urban design concept and strategy which defines delivery of a high quality site specific solution.

At construction stage we have developed a carefully planned approach to production information, together with our experience of project delivery and expert understanding of materials and three dimensional detailing we are able to make a significant positive contribution to the design team. We bring a fresh outlook, innovation and creativity to value engineering exercises.

We work directly for private clients, developers and contractors, we understand what information is required at each stage of the project to ensure efficient and accurate planning, tendering, procurement and construction.

We work as lead consultant, managing creative design teams with a wide range of consultants and specialists to deliver complex and large scale projects.
