Urban Design and Masterplanning
Our experienced and creative team work across the full range of urban design disciplines, at all stages of the development process, for both private and public sector clients.
We strive to create sustainable new communities which sit naturally with their context, landscape and history. We develop conceptual design and feasibility appraisals to enable early assessment of potential viability, and undertake strategic visioning, masterplanning, town centre regeneration, urban renewal and public realm projects.
We work across a wide range of development types, including housing, employment, leisure, education and civic projects, and are focused on design quality and delivery of investment and sustainable development.
What we offer
A strong culture of collaboration with colleagues, clients and stakeholders is key to our success. Clients value our readiness to listen and engage; a philosophy which gives rise to designs which are locally distinctive and sustainable, with strong connectivity and sense of place. We have an excellent track record of securing planning consent on sensitive and challenging sites in both urban or rural settings.
Our reputation is founded on our skills as qualified urban designers, but also on our wider expertise in integrated landscape and visual appraisal, community consultation and graphic communication. We cooperate closely with our landscape and architectural colleagues and this integrated, iterative approach maintains the connection between design innovation and technical deliverability.
Our portfolio of work spans all sectors, and our clients range across many Local Authorities, a wide range of housebuilders, private landowners, commercial property developers, and consultants.
