“Put a good business in a better building and it will become a better business.”
Mark Simpson, Head of Workplace
Our architects, designers and engineers have considerable experience in the design and delivery of award-winning office buildings and workplaces across the globe, undertaking commissions for some of the world’s biggest brands, including AstraZeneca, BBC, Deloitte, Evershed Sutherland, Google, and PwC.
We work with both public and private sector clients, institutions, investors and developers to create innovative, efficient, and sustainable offices which realise opportunities, meet, and exceed sustainability targets, and enhance the working lives of those who use them.
Our clients turn to us to create and deliver best in class workplace designs for their employees, clients, and visitors with an emphasis on high quality interior design, wellbeing, sustainability, diversity and inclusion.
We provide inspiring and supportive workplaces which foster a culture of community and choice, collaboration and innovation.
Our designers work to fully understand the culture of each client to create unique office designs that fully support business needs, and the needs of their people.
We are driven to support our clients in achieving their environmental, sustainability and governance (ESG) goals as part of their workplace design strategies, and are adept in the reuse and appropriation of existing buildings to create workplaces that meet net zero targets.
