Building design

We design distinctive, imaginative buildings that inspire civic and corporate pride, buildings that reflect our drive for excellence and innovation.


Civic and commercial, health and education, retail and leisure, transport and sport – our design experience across all building sectors means we have developed a dedicated team of experts who collaborate with project partners and clients to deliver outstanding results. Our buildings business is resourced from offices in over 50 countries including dedicated design hubs in the UK, US, Australia, Middle East and Asia Pacific.

We provide services from concept to detailed design and our in-depth understanding of buildings and infrastructure delivery enables us to guide appropriate decision making at the earliest stage.

Our design specialists and building engineers think beyond conventional disciplinary boundaries to derive realistic and future-focused solutions for all our customers – multinationals, developers, architects, contractors, local authorities, inward investors and private individuals alike.

Our design techniques enhance sustainability by minimising resource and energy use, recognising local contexts and allowing buildings to integrate with their surroundings. Our extensive experience of building physics, building information modelling (BIM), building economics enables us to meet the most crucial objective: to offer enduring buildings that are comfortable, efficient and attractive to the people who use them.
