Our people have high calibre qualifications, skills and experience in the fields of architecture, planning, urban design and the historic environment.

We have extensive experience in both private and public sectors, and we understand the priorities and requirements of each, enabling us to help find common ground during planning negotiations.

As well as our project work, we are actively involved in debate and discourse through our professional institutions (RIBA and RTPI), our membership of New London Architecture, involvement with design review panels and through research and writing.
