Lead Consultancy

We understand what it takes to deliver a best-in-class architectural solution, and bring a vision to life

As one of the leading international names in architectural lead consultancy, we possess a unique level of understanding in all disciplines related to successful project execution and delivery. Our approach in the lead consultant role is to fundamentally ensure that the design and methodology involved in taking a project from concept to delivery produces an end result that not only meets, but exceeds the expectations of the client.

Our multi-disciplinary, in-house capabilities and integrated project teams continue to provide first-class lead consultancy solutions on a range of complex projects, under both the traditional and Design & Build forms of contract. The expertise we present in a lead consultant capacity offers the highest level of project leadership, with core components of our proposition encompassing co-ordination, design management, authority approvals and streamlined working processes, all of which are geared towards moving the project efficiently through the phases by structured means, with a prescriptive and measured approach.

Taking the lead

In taking on the role of lead consultant, we take responsibility for driving the project forward. We coordinate all other consultants on the project, creating a collaborative working environment and acting as a single point of contact through which all involved parties can filter information. We work alongside the stakeholders, consultants and key members of the project team from an early stage in the process to make certain they understand the level we operate at, and to clearly indicate the standards we must reach to successfully deliver the project. Additionally, we are entrusted with identifying key milestones, establishing a critical path, managing the programme, ensuring deadlines are adhered to and monitoring the quality of work.

Partner

“We are the project custodian, the driving force behind all aspects of design coordination, with the responsibility for achieving the highest quality solution.”

Delivering value

We advise our clients on how best to achieve the desired outcome with a value-driven approach, implementing best practices and pragmatic solutions designed with the target in mind. Invariably, the target is to derive the most value from the project, while minimising risk and optimising the use of time. We pride ourselves on our proven ability to develop designs and implement creative solutions throughout the design/construction phases that deliver the highest level of value, efficiency and functionality, resulting in an aesthetically exceptional, sustainable design with substance.  

Built with passion

Each member of our team has a passion for design and for making a significant contribution towards the realisation of design into the built-form. Our proficiency as an award-winning design architect and the prestige of our delivery solution positions us ideally to provide a premium, complete solution that comprises all phases of the project cycle, from pre-concept to final handover. Combining this design strength and lead consultancy expertise has helped us to accumulate a portfolio that features numerous iconic architectural developments. We are unremitting in our approach, maintaining the design intent and successfully delivering projects from some of the world’s leading design houses, such as Zaha Hadid Architects and Foster + Partners, as well as those produced from within our own award-winning in-house design studio (+studio).

Whether our brief involves accomplishing a challenging level of floor plate efficiency, significantly reducing engineering costs, complex demolition requirements, or changing the use of the building midway through construction, the portfolio we have accumulated is testament to the successful accomplishment of some of the most challenging briefs a lead consultant can be posed with. Our success rate is driven by our attitude, knowledge and experience, but also by the raw passion we have throughout the company for delivering first-class buildings.
