A collaborative, evidence-led and systems-based approach to change
- for nature to thrive and people to enjoy and can relate to
How we work
Our role is dynamic; we:
enable and cocreate inspiring human and nature centred places which contribute to health and well-being, wildlife and water, short, medium and long term;
steer and problem-solve through evidence-led collaborative lateral thinking;
consider the whole lifecycle and systems-based thinking of the project and beyond;
create places that relate to context, people and nature;
Post occupancy evaluation of outdoor environment to enable physical and organisational change
look at quick wins to long-term impact;
use digital technology as part of our design thinking and process.
To create a successful project, we like to have full access to all relevant information, client, stakeholders, communities and consultant teams, allowing us to deliver a smooth-running and rewarding project on time and within budget.
