We have a keen eye for design, from initial concept ideas through to the technical detail, with design flair backed up with a strong technical background. Through Continuing Professional Development (CPD), our team is always developing skills and specialisms, keeping abreast of current policy, regulations, products and good practice.

Our open plan office encourages discussion and peer review. As part of our rigorous design process, once we have identified opportunities and constraints for a project, we regularly hold design sessions to test and develop ideas.

We are confident design team leaders, encouraging collaboration and coordination with other consultants from the outset of projects to secure the most effective design solutions.
