We’re right there with you, from the very first drawings to the day you throw open those brand new doors.
Designing the right building for you
In today’s climate we know a one-size-fits-all approach isn’t right for everyone – and going bespoke might not be the best option either. That’s why we’ve developed a structured, three-tier approach. It’s the way we start each project and it helps us identify the right build for you.
It’s not about compromise, and it’s not about steering you towards one approach over another. It’s about working closely together to get the best results. We’re passionate about every design we show you and we’ll work with you to choose a route that gets you the results you need.
The simplest, fastest, most effective way to get your new building up – and open – is to use one of our standardised designs.
We’ve developed a suite of pre-designed classrooms, hall extensions and whole schools that we can deliver for a fixed price, in a fast, fixed timeframe.
Having a suite of standardised designs means we recognise those extra opportunities where we can enhance your brief and exceed your aspirations - whilst retaining the benefits of approach one.
Yes, it will take a bit longer but this approach gives you flexibility and the full advantage of standardised designs all at the same time.
The other end of the scale is a complete custom build – creating a bespoke school building or home. It’s a fully immersive experience and, if you’ve got the time to do it, the most rewarding way to commission a building.
You’ll need time to engage with the project and an experienced team at your end to work closely with ours. But, if you’re up for the challenge, you’ll love the results.

There’s never just one way to go. Our bespoke designs are built on your bright ideas, our standardised route starts with your specifics and our hybrid approach opens a box full of brilliantly flexible design elements.
Having a big project with a small timeframe isn’t a problem. Our standardised builds go up incredibly quickly, our hybrid designs streamline everything and even our bespoke designs benefit from decades of experience of getting the job done, fast.
Our standardised designs reduce stress and timescales, but they’re still devised to the highest specifications. In fact, they’ve been used in so many builds, in so many ways that they’re phenomenally robust and ready to withstand the vigour of every day life.
Going bespoke with us is a rewarding experience. We craft our design around you, immerse you in the build and put you at the heart of the debate. The result you get is a building you made and can be proud of.
