We work in a collaborative environment structured around design reviews and workshop areas. This reflects our pragmatic design approach, based on clever problem-solving skills, a value-focus, with a passion for low energy buildings and an in-depth knowledge of materials. We design buildings that are efficient and generous, innovative and considered.

Our technical expertise is supported by the use of collaborative design tools, including sketching, physical model making and 3dCAD/BIM. We work in close collaboration with other disciplines at an early stage with the aim to develop an informed design.

BE1’s principles of creativity, sustainability, collaboration, context, social vision and innovation sit at the heart of all of our projects. These principles are applied to all projects from inception to completion and are reviewed internally throughout the process. We strive to ensure that we are continuously refining and improving this design and delivery process to exceed our clients’ expectations.

We believe that all buildings, irrelevant of scale, should respond to the requirements of the end users, but also to its immediate and wider context, ensuring that it contributes positively to its environment today and into the future.

We are experienced in design and delivery and we are involved throughout all stages of the design process, including:

  • Feasibility studies
  • Concept design
  • Detailed design
  • Construction information
  • Contract administration
  • Handover and Soft Landings
