We’re into design and building spaces that not only are a pleasure to work in, but are also productive, energising, positive and inspiring. Sounds a bit lofty? We promise we’re down to earth really. We just understand how good work spaces can be. And our goal is to make them truly work for you.

We do this with industry-leading design from our creative, sometimes left field design team and with expert project management which delivers transparent, adaptable and trusted direction.

Our Process


Design & Plan

Build & Fit-Out

We start by giving you a dedicated team, who will stay with your project throughout, with one managing point of contact to keep things personal and perfectly understood.

We can research your staff’s working preferences if you want us to, to get a full picture of the needs of your business.

We make our survey.

We present you with our plans, which will include: full schedule including site and progress reporting; completely transparent costs breakdown; trusted contractor details, health and safety and quality control considerations.

On project completion, you’ll have our CDM and O&M documents.
