What’s your brief?

Each brief is unique in its detail, but projects can fall into broad categories. Take a look and see if any of these match what you're considering...

The Right Move

Feasibility – we love it. The strategic stuff. Should you move or can we make your existing space work harder for you? What are the likely costs and timescales? What are the alternatives? Will you fit (now and in 5 years). Are the services adequate? Could you sub-let? Will you get Planning permission? Design Consultants – the clues in our name.

New place, new space

Let us make it work for you. Problem solving has never looked better. We design fantastic working and living environments. We design offices, labs, conference spaces, retail, hotels, teaching facilities, bars, health-care, homes, restaurants, manufacturing and R&D facilities, need we go on – we will ensure your new environment exceeds your expectations.

Space Planning services

Handle everything!

We don’t have to (every client is different) but we can. From that initial feasibility that we like so much to arranging and planning your physical move. Even moving heavy equipment on to a specially reinforced lab floor. If you don’t have someone that can look after that - we do. We project manage. We take responsibility. We work for you.

Work smarter

Things have changed. They always do! The important thing is to notice. People live and work differently to how they used to. Technologies and design can accommodate and encourage this. We won’t claim to make you more productive – but by making your team more efficient, happy and collaborative we can give them the tools to be so. Well working – is it working well or being well at work. Done right – both. Be prepared to be challenged by us and maybe even work differently.

Just furniture

There’s no just about it. From making sure your posture is right to promoting team-work and cooperation, furniture is integral to any major project. Sometimes it is the project. We have access to some of the most cutting edge, functional, cost-effective and beautiful product ranges in existence. Being designers and architects we can help select the right furniture for your buildings functionality, period and décor.

‘Operation Weekend’

You might be surprised what can be achieved in those 48 hours (or 62 hours if you want to really push it) between the end of Friday and start of Monday. When the working day wasn’t an option we have installed air-con, re-planned departments, built offices, removed meeting rooms, installed video conferencing suites, in fact pretty much anything is possible

Project Management



Just what it says on the tin. So you’re not moving or extending but something has to give. There can be a million reasons for this and a million things to address. It usually starts however with your surroundings looking a bit tired. We can do something about that.
