Our approach to working in project teams is often one where we evolve, in sketch and in conversation, a series of basic templates against which strategies can be costed and valued. It is a highly iterative process and teases out a reaction from the Client and generates, through a common understanding, first the strategic brief and then, as the design takes shape, the detailed brief. Within this process are a series of sub-routines where structural and services solutions are explored and tested against the brief. Often solutions emerge, unlocking the potential of the collective thinking and delivering exceptional results.
