An urban consulting team specialising in pre-architectural and pre-detailed design work

This team includes those with skills in planning, masterplanning, heritage consulting, feasibility, consultation, design advice and urban design. We have found that as the economy has tightened with sources of public sector funding disappearing, matched by reduced private capital flows, caution and risk aversion are now increasingly the norm.

Our front-end consultancy work is carried out in order to optimise project potential, deliverability (including establishing support) and values. Part of this process involves gathering appropriate evidence to support the formulation of a viable designs and development solutions which can be supported by the planning process.

Our consulting team works extensively with others on projects where development consulting (market evaluation, cost, financial appraisal etc) and technical evaluation (infrastructure, highways, flood risk, geotechnics etc) are required to establish the best solution for the client.
