Working with us should be thought of as part of the investment; never just another unfortunate cost. Design should be beautiful and persuasive but it is only truly useful when it is a response to the commercial challenges you face.
Our Directors understand the key drivers behind commercial development and this understanding governs the way we think and design. Whatever the context, be it a facility for a known end-user client, or a potential speculative development, we look to deliver intelligent solutions that people will find valuable.
We think that on time and on budget should come as standard; it’s finding how to give your enterprise a real competitive edge that’s the real goal.
Working with us means working very closely with a Director of our company. We posses a wide range of skills that allow us to conceptualise solutions, develop them and produce all the construction information to deliver on time and budget.
Significantly we love to be in at the start, site assessment and feasibility studies are about understanding the opportunities. Options based studies are commonplace, helping to establish the optimum solution and the business case for development.

We have produced 3D models since 1994, creating superb visualisations, improving communication and understanding amongst all project participants. These technologies can now be accessed simultaneously so that our colleagues can model together improving the pace of production. Increased compatibility between software is also allowing all project team members to incorporate their designs into a single combined model, promoting collaborative working, checking for compatibility and eliminating inconsistencies.
Now Consultants and Contractors are looking beyond traditional outputs and working directly with “data-rich” models. Contractors are importing our models into specialist software to create virtual building sites on which construction is rehearsed prior to attempting the real thing. Furthermore each element within the model can be assigned a variety of detailed information resulting in automated scheduling and increased cost certainty.
Clients can also benefit with access to the information during the design process allowing decisions to be made that will ultimately reduce running costs for the whole life of a building. The information can also be incorporated into Facilities Management software creating a smoother handover at the end of the design and construction phases.
We are also passionate advocates of open solutions and speak regularly on the subject of interoperability and BIM. In particular we are strong supporters of the OPEN BIM campaign and members of buildingSMART UK&I.
Our research has allowed us to update all our systems, templates and standards to align with the latest industry thinking. We are prepared and able to assist Clients and Contractors to both deliver BIM and help the whole team work together collaboratively. We have a specialist central team, Bond Bryan Digital, that supports all of our studios but also offers services to the wider industry.
