Architectural Services For The Whole Of Your Project

Planning Consultancy

As members of the RTPI, our planning consultants work within the design team to focus on the national, local and political aspects of managing a planning strategy. The integration of public consultation, stakeholder management with national and regional planning policy is central to a planning success.

Architectural Design

Design is a many faceted concept. Work with us to become involved in the process, understand the minutia and explore the outcomes of architecrtural design.

Technical Drawing

Whether we’re hand-sketching a floor plan or using the latest technology to create detail drawings, we take an exacting approach to technical work that’s earned us an enviable reputation.

A Bespoke Contribution

Architects are problem solvers. Their role within a design team (on larger projects) or as the project lead on smaller schemes, can expand to include assisting in land negotiations, legal difficulties, funding strategies and disposal issues.

Our practice prides itself on contributing positively to all aspects of the process, irrespective of the scale or cost of the challenge.

With a focus on client requirements and delivery, from our head office in the west Midlands we offer a range of services to assist you in every stage of your project. Our strategy and services are bespoke for every instruction, tailored to the specific requirements of client, site and brief.

Return on Investment

We have been working in the developer sector for half a century. We understand the value of a planning consent, the difference between commercial viability and excessive design cost, the holding cost of a site and the at risk investment required to assemble a viable and delivearable scheme. We put our clients return at the heart of every strategy we run.


We take a commercial approach to projects. Maximising the amount of income producing space can impact dramatically on your return as we aim to drive up your GDV.

Financial Modelling

We work in collaboration with cost consultants to prepare robust and flexible development appraisals to assist with development funding strategies.

Added Value

Reviews of existing planning consents can realise a greater development margin, de-risking your project.

Feasibility Studies

Robust site analysis at the inception of a project ensures competitive and market sensitive land bids. Thorough appraisals also reveal quantifiable risks and opportunities.

Land Opportunities

Our extensive experience in the industry has allowed us to build up a database of land and development opportunities which we actively seek to place with our developer client base.

In-House Consultants

Together with our in-house planning consultancy we collaborate with transport and infrastructure consultants and other preferred suppliers to manage your cost profile.

I would definitely recommend them, especially if you want a design which is stylish and contemporary, but also in keeping with its setting.
