Connect with our team

In all our work we design for people – from children and young adults through to the wellbeing and care of older citizens.

We are passionate too about developing the next generation of architects and technologists.

Over the years we have sponsored many of our current staff in furthering their education and qualifications whilst working with us.

Helping those members of staff to become fully qualified architects and technologists, whilst developing their skills and experience in a real-world situation, benefits the individuals, our practice and the industry as a whole.
