Design guidance and codes
The delivery of high quality design – with the power to shape the future success of a place – relies upon effective guidelines being established. Drawing on the full breadth of our expertise across urban design, masterplanning, policy and strategy, we produce detailed design guidance and codes tailored to the needs and aspirations of each client.
From borough-wide design principles to site-specific codes, we create user-friendly guides which provide inspiration for imaginative and innovative solutions, whilst setting controls for design quality and adherence to key regulations and policies. We help our clients set a clear benchmark for the future quality of a development, leading the delivery of places with distinct character and a strong sense of identity.
