We give independent advice and support at the earliest stages of project briefing and design. We can provide advice for projects across the scales, from individual buildings to masterplans. Enabling work can be carried out for any part of the process, from community involvement through to detailed design work.
We offer informal design review of major and strategic projects across the planning and development sectors. We encourage engagement at the earliest possible stage, whether this takes the form of regular informal critiques or, if needs be, more formal design review through one of our affiliated panels.
We provide access to best practice case studies, both locally and from further afield. We aim to bridge the gap between research at the scale of individual building and national standards and agenda initiatives, and we do this through research and intelligence gathering. We aim to synthesise data to make it practical and useable. We want to see results delivered on the ground.
