Planning & Design

We utilise the latest in Computer Aided Design systems (AutoCAD® and Revit®) to ensure we maintain your requirements, improve efficiency through integrated progressive budgeting and facilitate for quick turnarounds.
As the design develops, it becomes easier to project manage the various works much earlier in the design process and allows amendments to be made long before the refurbishment of the project begins. We find this early upfront engagement reduces uncertainty and complications that may arise during typical project delivery. This approach allows us to coordinate all elements of design through to on-site delivery to a much higher standard, improving safety, preventing errors and reduce on-site waste. Our design team possesses strong, comprehensive knowledge of FF&E, materials, finishes, building regulations and typical scientific theory processes. We offer extensive ranges of design-led standard solutions which are will readily meet most applications. We are happy to develop more bespoke custom designs integrating every element of the internal fit-out including the M&E, specialist gases and specialist equipment dependant on your specifications.
Design & Build approach.
Our design & build approach allows us to obtain a full understanding and interpretation of your requirements and therefore allows us to deliver a highly quality and timely approach where all elements and services of the build, work harmoniously together. Through the use of photo-realistic visualisations, internal panoramic virtual reality viewing and project video walkthroughs, we enable clients to envision their facility prior to the start of the project. Our unique design approach enables us to identify new ways of working to create more collaborative, efficient and sustainable working environments.
We make considerations to a variety of factors that will influence any refurbishment including operational excellence of specific furniture fixtures and equipment, incorporating energy efficiencies and sustainable approaches within those. Our attention to detail and interval led comprehensive presentation packages enable you to understand your project at every step of the way.We optimise value by mitigating wasteful practices and work with you to identify how team members are motivated, obtain insights into the people, process and places that drive results and positive changes forward.
