Most developers will be working from a residual valuation; even if it is on the back of an envelope - if you like, a Financial Strategy. What informs that should be more than a sketch, it should set out the spatial division of the site; look at how this can be delivered; the alternatives and options.
This is what we call a Space Strategy
We develop a robust Space Strategy for all of our projects, in turn, this supports the progress of the scheme in the Planning System.
Even for small projects, we often use the source-path-receptor model; based on our experience of Evironmental Impact Assessments, which gives additional 'weight' to our Design and Access Statements and supports best practice - esp. with regards to Sustainability.
Urban Design & Masterplanning
We draw on our Architectural & Masterplanning experience - fluently controlling the development process to create positive places and spaces based on an implicit understanding of the delivery of individual buildings.
Extensive Masterplanning & Urban Design experience -- particularly Spatial Masterplanning enables us to focus on the conditions needed for successful development.
