How We Do It
“Whatever the commission, whatever the sector, we approach all our work in the same logical way using commercially savvy pragmatism.”
Of course we want to be proud of our work and secure some awards along the way, but first and foremost we want to build a reputation that uses our architectural skill to help our clients add value and optimise the use of their existing or future assets and of course maximise their Return on Investment.
Whatever the commission we can’t help but look at ‘the bigger picture’ in everything we do. This doesn’t mean we’ll get distracted, but it does mean if we can see an opportunity to add further value, particularly if at no additional cost, we believe we have a duty to bring it to the attention of our client.
We consciously don’t have a ‘house style’ or even a single specialism as evident in our diverse portfolio. This is simply because we passionately believe our ‘Logical,’ commercially focused and efficient design approach is transferable to any commission.
“Aesthetics are the icing on the cake, not the sole driver behind our designs”
Inevitably our form follows function approach tends to lend itself to a contemporary aesthetic but each on of our clients, sites and briefs are different and so is our portfolio.
Attention to Detail
Our reputation for delivering efficient, commercially focused architecture extends far beyond an award winning design ability in that we also pride ourselves in creating refined and exceptionally detailed construction and production information.
“We believe investment into detailed drawings pre construction offers our clients and their contractors reduced risk, easy of construction and therefore improved cost certainty”
Modern Methods Of Construction (MMC)
Inevitably in our quest for optimum efficiency we have become strong advocates of MMC and are fanatical about the opportunity it provides us to work with increased accuracy. Currently we are detailing projects using timber, lightweight steel frame, insulated SIPS panels and our favourite MMC – Modular Construction where we assisted modular experts Elliott secure the £120M Priority Schools Wave 3 Primary Modular framework from the EFSA. We are also helping a new Registered Provider in their delivery of 2 supported housing schemes to be constructed entirely offsite.
“We have become strong advocates of MMC and are fanatical about the opportunity it provides us to work with increased accuracy.”
Whilst we may think and work in 3D everyday, we appreciate not all our clients and their building users can and thus have a reputation for offering a wide range of virtual visulisation and animation options to suit the audience and budget.
Whilst we produce most of our photorealistic CGI renderings and video animations in house we are also privileged to work alongside some of the UK’s most advanced digital creative businesses in the DigitalCity Boho zone, enabling us to offer clients the opportunity to interact and experience Augmented Reality and holograms.

Building Information Modelling (BIM)
Working exclusively with Autodesk Revit the Logic team ‘model’ every project in 3D irrespective of size enabling us to also fully embrace Building Information Modeling and the phenomenal opportunities it can offer our clients from design development, through clash detection and scheduling through to asset model transfer on completion.
Increasingly we are becoming involved in working in a collaborative environment with Structural, Mechanical & Electrical consultants working on a federated model leading to the inevitable commitment by the public sector to achieve at least BIM Level 2 in compliance with PAS 1192-2.

Our Accreditations (BIM)
In addition to designing efficient buildings we also strive to work as efficiently as possible and have committed to work with absolute quality who audit our Quality Management System in accordance with BS ISO9001 & ISO 14001.
