An award-winning consultancy with over 30 years’ experience in delivering placemaking solutions that benefit our clients, communities and the wider environment.

Our large scale masterplanning and implementation work for new settlements has been widely recognised as an exemplar of best practice for residential schemes and green infrastructure, winning two Landscape Institute awards, numerous construction industry awards and being included in national design and planning guidance. Over 30 years’ experience with Cambourne new settlement has provided us with a particular skillset suited to the complexities of delivering large scale mixed-use schemes.  As a result, we have assisted a range of clients involved in some of the UK’s major developments, including: Bicester the UK’s first eco-town, the redevelopment of Pinewood film studios into the UK’s largest media production facility, as well as a growing number of proposed garden villages and urban extensions.

In 2019 our work at Beaulieu, Chelmsford, (for Countryside Properties) was included in the National Design Guide as an example of how high-quality public space can integrate movement, local facilities, play, outdoor amenity and biodiversity net gain.

Our objective is to provide all our clients with consistently good solutions which balance new ideas with best practice to meet their needs.

We aim to be efficient, flexible, friendly and responsive; and to provide value for money both in design solutions and consultancy service.
