Shaping the places where people live, shop, work and learn
Our qualified and experienced urban designers and chartered landscape architects thrive on designing creative but relevant solutions that are appropriate to a site yet maximise its value. We see a site’s constraints, its potential – even how it might develop and extend over decades.
Our team is helping to shape the built environment of the future, whether it’s new villages and science parks, commercial developments or university colleges. But design expertise is only one element of what we offer: we’re also dedicated to fostering long-term relationships with clients. It’s only when we properly know and understand your priorities and needs that we can get under the skin of a project and produce our very best work.
We work across the country on multi-team projects where we link in seamlessly with colleagues in Bidwells’ planning, heritage, residential development and rural teams to offer clients an invaluable end-to-end service.
Some of the ways our urban design studio can help:
Creating masterplans of new developments
Maximising the value of your land or property
Finding new solutions for small or sensitive sites
Exploring creative ways to kick-start a stalled planning process
Producing landscape and visual impact assessments (LVIA)
Visualising new rural developments
Designing new education environments
Helping to visualise how a development will look on the ground
