New Build

Shaping the environment with beautiful design

Our approach begins with a strategy, not a design solution. This strategy arises from understanding the fundamental drivers of a brief and the parameters, problems and opportunities it represents. It includes a rich definition of context in political, economic, social and architectural terms.

We create buildings which are warm, welcoming and fun

Concern for the global environment and climatic conditions is a central influence on all of our designs. We consider that our buildings, their construction and operation should have minimum affect on the environment.

All of our buildings are designed as a 'light touch' minimising impact on the environment through sustainable design, employing innovation construction and operational techniques, minimising embodied energy, energy consumption and CO2 emmissions during the build and post occupation.

For an example of our new build designs, see our video of Thornhill Primary School undertaken with out sister company Keegans.
