We analyse what works, helping clients (including planners, councils, businesses and local people) to put sustainability thinking into plans from the start. We back up our thinking with hard facts, and provide insights and inspirations from around the world.

We bring ideas to life, using a range of creative and rigorous techniques to help people from different walks of life envision living in a different way.

We create strategies and plans for great places, working with clients, stakeholders and technical specialists to embed sustainability principles in the planning, delivery and management of places and projects.

We design great places, working with our network of collaborators to combine time-honoured placemaking principles with the best of 21st-century thinking and ingenuity.

We put together finance and delivery models incorporating whole-life economics into financial models and business plans to make places and projects work for the long run.
