Collaboration

Industry-leading communication and cooperation prove our team is stronger than the sum of its parts.

Through partnership, we deliver more value for clients and communities.

Buildings have the power to regenerate communities and drive growth. But that transformation can only occur when there’s synergy between stakeholders. 

We help drive that synergy. Our people-focused approach is rooted in collaboration, bringing together expertise, perspectives and innovations to find the best solution.

There are many examples of this in action. There’s our community engagement to understand needs, context and opportunities. From the beginning of a project, we work with consultants to manage constraints and compliance. We coordinate with local authorities and design review panels to iterate ideas and streamline planning. We join forces with modular housing and pre-fabrication specialists to maximise efficiency and cost-effectiveness. And the list goes on.

Collaboration is embedded in everything we do, enabling us to de-risk planning, appraisal and construction – and ensure projects deliver maximum civic and social value.

Engage

We engage with a range of stakeholders, from local authorities and design review panels to consultants and community groups.

Listen

We listen to perspectives to understand the context and opportunities – and because we don’t have a monopoly on great ideas.

Analyse

We analyse how a range of perspectives affect our approach, because by challenging our thinking we deliver better outcomes.

Absorb

We absorb the impacts of the analysis to refine the narrative, so the scheme delivers maximum commercial, civic and social value.
