They are a team of built environment professionals including: architects, structural engineers, planning consultants, quantity surveyors, project managers and sustainability consultants. They believe in power of good design and that great spaces can facilitate communities. They see this in their projects and many other great spaces across the UK.

However, this always comes through their  contacts and they want to make this more equitable and available to everyone.
