Accessible Design

When disability occurs, its impact extends widely, affecting both the individual and their immediate family. The primary objective of adapting or extending an existing building or proposing a new build is to support the individual's long-term rehabilitation. In our practice, effective design can be both functional and economical. We approach each case individually, providing a friendly and accessible service. From the initial property appraisal before purchase to the on-site completion, we are actively engaged in both existing and new build projects.

We work closely with our network of specialists in the industry including solicitors, accommodation experts, case managers, occupational therapists and expert witnesses to provide the highest quality service to our clients.

Masterplanning requires an understanding of the sustainable relationship between the built environment and the communities that live, work and play within it. Whether it’s a boutique retail development, the regeneration of a town centre or the creation of a new city quarter, the process demands a careful balance of skills including a commercial understanding, creativity, practical knowledge of a range of building types and sensitivity to context.

Our impressive client list includes renowned planning consultancies, developers and some of the largest landowners in the UK. We work closely with these partners to realise the best social and economic value for their land whilst creating beautiful places that will enhance lives, today and in the future.

Our team has experience delivering projects across a range of other sectors including commercial developments, industrial units, education, leisure and retail. With a diverse client list including a fashion label, the largest pub company in the UK and a five star hotel operator we pride ourselves on our ability to understand our clients' unique requirements.

Our experience includes a specific knowledge of modern methods of construction (MMC), having delivered residential, commercial and educational buildings using off-site modular construction.
