Rationalisation of space is one way forward, reducing the number of service centres and overall quantity of floor-space, at the same time recognising the need to reinvest in the retained centres.
We aim to help by proving the very best range of services. Our Research and Development team deliver whole estates strategies that look to improve the quality and organisation of the working environment; focussing on the efficient use of space invariably reduces running costs and even generates capital receipts via disposal of surplus assets.
Our architects are experts in the design and delivery of attractive and effective working environments. We are very much at home listening to end-users alongside executive groups and piecing the jigsaw together, creating excellent design solutions, that support the well being of people and good-working practice, whilst delivering on time and on budget.
The Core Community Project, Barnsley
We are curious; we want to understand your business, your way of working, your processes and how your people must relate to one another. We aspire to create excellent facilities and excellent working environments that, quite literally, help get the job done.
Our Research and Development team are also well versed in developing strategic solutions for whole estates that make better use of space, generating savings and even disposal receipts; this allows local authorities and public institutions to make the very best use of resources at a time of increasing scarcity.
We also understand the discipline required to work within the public sector, the need to report and explain; to demonstrate that risks are appropriately managed; that designs represent good vale for money and that design quality is being maintained.
Last but never least, it's our goal to create something wonderful that exceeds regular expectations and raises the spirits! We never forget that your project might be a once in a lifetime opportunity to create something better for people; something truly sustainable that is a real asset for the local community.

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 central team, Bond Bryan Digital, who support all of our studios with the implementation of BIM and also offer services to the wider industry.
