Commercial Placemaking and Masterplanning

The worlds of work, retail, leisure, and home continue to be transformed by lasting behaviour changes. We help you plan ahead to create innovative, and future-proof commercial space solutions tailored to the evolving demands of customers.

We help your business create original and enduring consumer-facing spaces as part of mixed-use developments or larger regeneration projects. Supported by insights from our Making Places research lab, we work with landlords, investors, agents and designers on development and repositioning projects from urban renewal to rural reimagination.  

Our expertise is across multiple asset classes, from workplace and residential developments to shopping centres, delivering spaces that transform your consumer's experience, as the lines between live, work and play environments blur.

Consumer Insights

Everything we do starts with your planned end user. We embark on every project with in-depth research and insights, creating a holistic overview that allows us to deliver responsive and curated commercial environments to help you effectively shape the future of your properties.


Commercial Masterplanning

We design the consumer-facing components of your development, designing the commercial and social realms of the ground floor. We work across a wide spectrum of asset classes and put future-proofing, and resilience at the core of our thinking.

Delivery Blueprint

Uniquely our team is part of a wider global real estate business and financial services group. This allows us to tap into in-house expertise to deliver design-led solutions for your planned residential, retail, workspace, and rural environments and to offer financially fluent solutions and advice that will support long term outperformance.

Operational Strategy

We work closely with clients to create delivery framework to ensure that each real estate development has legacy at its heart.
