Design and development


Our approach to design quality starts as we engage with our partners via focus group meetings. These vital sessions help us to shape, challenge, understand and expand on our partners’ initial brief, and to fully understand what they – and their end users – really need.

From here, we will generate a range of options to be considered and appraised by the commissioning client, providing us the opportunity to challenge assumed constraints and produce imaginative and creative proposals.


With designs complete, should our partners need support and guidance through the development stage, we are proud to offer a comprehensive range of development services, including:

  • Estate rationalisation and master-planning
  • Outline and detailed planning permission
  • Space planning
  • Public consultation
  • Option appraisals.

Our services are available to clients at any point of the delivery process.

We offer a particular expertise in the following types of projects:

  • New build schemes
  • 3PD primary care schemes
  • Refurbishment of acute and community facilities.
