Six services joining together
to unlock the potential of place.
A recent study revealed that we value places much more than we value things. So, if we want to fix our towns and cities, we need to start thinking how we can make more of the places where we live and work.
It is the public realm that knits everything together, it here that lives overlap.
Successful projects never happen by accident
Turning a development idea into something deliverable requires absolute clarity on objectives, opportunities and risks. All of this before the design is even considered.
Development needs strong planning leadership and planning requires creative thinking. By seeing the bigger picture, we can ensure that what is deliverable is lasting and sustainable.
An iterative design process
A fast-changing world results in opportunities, as well as complexities. A drive for growth is meaningless if it doesn’t result in the creation of great places, supported by great infrastructure.
EIA is integral to the delivery of good design, helping to maximise the benefits whilst minimising impacts on the environment.
Reading the landscape
We see environmental planning as providing the technical and creative insight into time and place, drawing on ecology and heritage to deliver positive change and development.
By bringing alive the drivers of long-term change in the environment, we can help clients and communities to make informed decisions about what development means for the landscape and the built environment, and where to invest to achieve the maximum benefit.
Butterflies in spring, bees in summer, aphid-eating ladybirds that protect our gardens better than any pesticide – the living planet is full of delight and wonder.
Within this biodiversity lies balance and resilience. But everywhere it is being damaged, diminished and destroyed. Which amounts to the most dangerous risk that humans are taking.
